The Lingerie Sewing: Weekend Roundup is a curation of a few projects/ongoing events in the lingerie making community. It’s a quick catch up for you to enjoy over the weekend with a cup of coffee or tea. If you want to be part of the weekend roundup, shoot me an email at thetailormadeblog[@]gmail.com with links to your instagram, blog post, or just photos if you don’t have a blog and I’ll be sure to include your work!
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!

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.
