5 Free Underwear Sewing Patterns // Bra + Underwear Kit Giveaway

5 Free Underwear Sewing Patterns

// CLICK HERE TO VIEW & DOWNLOAD THE FREE UNDERWEAR PATTERNS //

Last week, I took over Maker Style’s instagram to talk about my favorite free underwear sewing patterns. We revealed a pattern each day and in each post I shared tips for materials and techniques you can try with each pattern.

It’s a new year and I’ve noticed that many makers have included lingerie making as part of their new year’s resolutions. Sewing lingerie does not have to be daunting–you don’t have to dive into an underwire bra as your first project. In fact, you can start with something simple like a pair of underwear. All the techniques you learn with sewing underwear can be applied towards more advanced lingerie projects.

Hopefully, this Instagram takeover has inspired some of you to start your lingerie sewing journey!

The download links to all the underwear patterns are now available over at Maker Style’s blog. Click here to view and download the patterns!

Red Edena Bralette

Tailor Made Shop Bra Making Edena Bralette Bramaking with Madalynne

Hi guys, I have a quick update today. I inadvertently made a bralette for the holidays!

This is my third Edena Bralette. You can read about the first one here and the second one here. For this one, I used the same red lace that Maddie used for her Edena Bralette here. The lace was actually a gift from her–thanks Maddie!

No further changes were made to the pattern. The fit is pretty much perfect as is.

If you are into behind the scenes/work in progress shots, I actually made a video of me applying the band elastic to this bralette. You can view it here.

Black/Lavender Edena Bralette & Cyber Monday Sale

Black Edena Bralette Tailor Made Shop Bra Making DIY Handamde Lingerie

I’m back today with my second iteration of the Edena Bralette. You can find the first iteration here.

For this version, I used a black non-stretch lace that I had in my stash and lined it with black bra tulle. I also used black satin elastic for the straps and the strappy detail. I opted to use a fun lavender picot elastic for contrast.

Some changes to the pattern: I increased the height of the neckline by 3/8″. I also increased the bottom band height by 3/8″ so the bralette now provides more coverage overall. I also added the extra strappy detail. Because it’s pretty much a known secret by now that I’m a sucker for strappy details.

I pretty much adore this bralette to death. I’ve made a third one and have a fourth one in the works right now.
