I don’t usually do this kind of ‘compilation’ posts, but this week I’ve found a lot of great lingerie-related things out there, and I couldn’t resist to share them with you! 🙂
First: the new issue of Seamwork (my favourite monthly sewing magazine) is out, and it’s called “The Intimate Issue” for a reason: it focuses on lingerie and loungewear! I particularly loved the “Behind the Seams” section this month (all about a GORGEOUS vintage silk slip!), and a great article about… corset-making! (with some amazing pictures –Yay!). Also, there’s a really interesting piece about how to make lingerie from fabric straps: it gives some great ideas! Also, the rest of the articles are worth reading too. I always learn new things through Seamwork!
Second: Do you remember the series of interviews that Réka is making at her blog RedHeels? Well, the second interview is published now and it features one of my favourite bra-makers: the lovely Erin, from the blog The Sewing and Life Adventures of Emerald Erin! If you’d like to know more about her, go to Réka’s blog and check the interview 😉
Third: I’m sure you’ve heard of the Best Sewing Blogs Competition hosted by Madalynne. Every year, I enjoy discovering new sewing bloggers thanks to it, and this year is no exception 😉 You can vote now for the second round –I already did and I’m very pleased to see that some of my favourite blogs have made it to the run offs! And I just discovered several interesting new blogs. It’s nice to see that the online sewing community is expanding so quickly! (Somehow this blog made it to the run offs too, and I can’t believe it! I wanted to send a big THANK YOU from here to everyone that nominated it in the first round!! ^^)
And, last but not least: I’ve just heard that the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is going to host an exhibition about…. Lingerie!! It’s called ‘Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear’, and it lasts from 16 April 2016 to 12 March 2017. It seems really interesting!! I wish I could go, but I’m afraid that London is a bit far away from Barcelona… So, if you happen to be near London in a few months, don’t miss it! 😉
So, that’s all! But keep your eyes peeled because… tomorrow I’m blogging about my first bra of February and I promise that there’ll be lace all around! 😛
