The blog has been a bit dead this week! I had TONS of university stuff to do, but now I’m nearly done, so… It’s sewing time!! 😉
During the past few months (when my head wasn’t stuck on books) I’ve been spotting a trend on lingerie design: soft bras with a triangle shaped cut out at the center band. I’ve lots of them in my Pinterest boards, but my favourites are this one, by Playful Promises, and this one, by Kiss Me Deadly (and I love the photo, btw!).
So, I decided to draft and sew my own, inspired by those great designs! Mine, as you can see, features soft satin cups (lined with cotton jersey) with vertical darts, and pale pink powermesh at the wings. I’ve used a black elastic trim for the top of the wings and a wider elastic (about 1/2″) at the bottom band. Also, I’ve reinforced the side seams with casing, and the bra closes at the back with a metallic clasp.
