Hello! It’s been a while, but welcome to the June 15th, 2020 Edition of Lingerie Sewing Round Up!
Tailor Made Shop has resumed opening now that lockdown has ended in NYC. I will be retroactively adding all the previous lingerie sewing roundups that were missed.
If you are new around here, the Lingerie Sewing Roundup is a curation of a few projects, tips and tutorials, and ongoing events in the lingerie sewing community. Lately, these posts have encompass swimwear sewing and activewear sewing as well. It’s a quick catch up up for you to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.

The Maris bralette (View A) features a 3-part bra cup – a lower cup with a vertical seam that provides shaping and volume for all cup sizes – and a triangle upper cup. The bralette is finished with fold over elastic binding along the neckline and the underarm, and a wide elastic band at the bottom, which gives additional support. Bralette also has adjustable shoulder straps and a front closure.

Nadia is a QUICK no show underwear in hip sizes 34″-64″. Choose from a thong or cheeky style. Both options have a low, mid and high rise. They are cut on the fold, so only have a back and crotch seam. The crotch and liner seams are all enclosed for comfort and a professional finish. The waist and leg seams are left raw so they are super quick to sew. The no show style is perfect for workout leggings, dresses, work pants and more! Nadia will quickly fill your drawers.
