The view with the crossover bridge is quite interesting to me.

New Garter Belt Pattern: Corbeau
We have a double pattern release from Small Bobbins. First up is the Corbeau Garter Belt. As per the designer:
Corbeau is an easy-to-sew garter belt with a big impact. Our signature geometric style is apparent with crossover panels on the front and back. The belt gives moderate coverage on the waist and follows the gentle curve around the sides of your hips, leading into four points to attach garter clips, if desired.

New Pattern: Courlis Stockings
What a fun concept! Who knew you could sew your own stockings? As per the pattern designer:
The Courlis Stockings pattern is a vintage-style seamed stocking that comes in two heights: thigh-high or knee-high. Versatile and easy to sew, make a pair of Courlis to elevate your me-made lingerie sets, or accessorize your Fall and Winter outfits with a fun pair of knee socks.
