As you remember, a few weeks ago I drafted my first underwired bra pattern, the Anita. It fitted well, but wasn’t perfect, so I’ve been modifying the pattern and… looking for an excuse to use this wonderful satin fabric!
During the last weeks I’ve been attending to a Lingerie Course at Rosascrafts, with Lola Mata as teacher. It’s been really fun and I’ve learned a lot of things, while filling my lingerie drawer with hundreds of new bras and panties! 😉
As a final exercise to this first part of the course, we had to reverse engineering a RTW bra. In my case the Chosen One was a H&M soft bra, with a pretty design but some peculiar colours… It was pale pink (like baby-bedroom-pink) trimmed with light BROWN lace. Seriously, brown. I like brown, but, I mean, NOT for lingerie. Not THAT brown paired with THAT pink. (Dear H&M designers, what the **** were you thinking??!)
Anyway, since I didn’t take any photos of “The Thing” (your eyes should thank me), you’ll only have my version of it:
Last week I joined the Bra-A-Week Challenge , organized by Erin. I participated with my Billie Bralette, but I didn’t say a thing here because… I was on holidays! 😀 I really liked the challenge experience: it’s a good way to improve your sewing by practicing week by week, but also a fantastic opportunity for watching other people’s work (and be so, so jealous of them!!) So, this week I’m going to participate with… the Lillian Bra Top!
