Me-Made-May is over! And, as I did with the first two weeks, here are some photos of the garments I wore:
- Floral top, with my first raglan sleeves and the nightmare of sewing with chiffon…
- Blue skirt: my first handmade garment ever! Is pretty simple, but I didn’t have a sewing machine back then… I hemmed this damn thing by hand!
- Kimono: my second handmade garment! Also sewn by hand, but far easier than hemming that freaken skirt…
- You’ve already seen this bra, paired with these knickers!
- Floral skirt, with the same fabric as the kimono. I made it in my first patternmaking course, which was focused on skirts!
- Black pleated pants (from my second patternmaking course!) and the Mallori Lane bra as a crop top: perfect for a night out!

Today we’re going to alter our Corinne pattern to get this version:
On the front side, it’s like the classic version, but… the surprise is on the back! It has two strips of elastic lace, joined together by a bow.
- Pattern modification + cutting
First, draw a line on the back piece and cut it. Then, add 1/6” seam allowance to the pieces:
Today we’re going to sew the Corinne Panties, a free pattern that you can find in my Patterns page. They’re super easy, so let’s sew! 😉
