Lingerie Sewing: Weekend Roundup

Lingerie Sewing Weekend Round Up

From this week:

I made two pairs of Cloth Habit’s Lady Shorts here. I also made a Navy Charmeuse Marlborough Bra using one of the newly added charmeuse kits from my shop.

Yiling of @theyilingcrafts had a busy lingerie making week! She made a hot pink Jasmine Bra using a Tailor Made Shop kit. She also made two Marlborough Bras, two pairs of Montgomery Briefs, and one pair of Bella Panties. You can view them here. Last, but not least is this lovely longline floral print bralette she made. You can view the bralette here.

Novita of Very Purple Person made a super fun Merckwaerdigh BHS10 Bralette in View C using a neon pink lace with contrast black elastics. You can view the project here.

Corri of @corri_sheff sewed up a bunch of Madalynne x Simplicity 8228 Bralettes in View B. Check them out here and here. She even made matching panties for the hot pink/gold set!

Isabella of @isabellamud also made a couple of Madalynne x Simplicity 8228 Bralettes in View B using lace from Tailor Made Shop. Check them out here and here. She even made matching panties using the Ohhh Lulu Sews Lace Panties pattern.

Isabelle of @besabelle made this gorgeous Watson Bra using our (sold-out) blossom orange ombre lace! View the project here.

Hannah of Evie la Luve just released The Lingerie Makers Project Book! The book has enough room for 15 lingerie sewing projects and other helpful lingerie sewing information. The first 10 people who buy it will receive inside a code for 15% off her shop.

Have a great weekend everybody!

The bralette is the Merckwaerdigh BHS10 View C with two small modifications.

I shortened the lace straps and used strapping elastic instead.

I also changed the back band piece so it’s no longer a scoop back.

The pattern seems to fit true to size. Friend who takes a 30C in the Watson Bra also takes a 30C in this bralette.

Of course, I also made matching panties using the free Make Bra pattern.

Yellow Merckwaerdigh BHS10 Bralette & Bella Panties

Yellow Merckwaerdigh BHS10 View C Tailor Made Shop Handmade Lingerie Bramaking

Hi guys, I’ve officially joined the Merckwaerdigh BHS10 Sewing Party!

I was inspired by everyone else’s Merckwaerdigh BHS10 bras on Instagram, so I finally made one (and then some). The view that I am most interested in is View C. I used a bright yellow lace from my shop and lined it with ivory power net.

A couple of things abut this pattern. It’s definitely not beginner friendly! I think the instructions are kind of sparse, so I would not attempt this pattern until you’ve made a few bras. The other thing is that there are no built-in seam allowances or elastic allowances–you have to add them yourself.

I can’t comment on the fit until the recipient tries on the bra, but I love that it’s really different from any bralette pattern out there currently. I have plans to make more of this view because I like how it integrates the lace scallop edge on the straps and side cups.

Evie la Luve Bella Panties

Of course, I couldn’t resist making matching Bella Panties as well.
