Every time I test a new pattern, I am amazed by what lovely creations my testers make. I am very happy to be sharing with you today the tester photos from my Tanja Boyshort pattern.
Iris Bralette: This bralette combines four different fabrics all in shades of light pink, and all from the same source: Spandex World. The cradle is milliskin, the cups are matte glissenette, the back band is powernet, and the lining is a stretch mesh.
Tanja Boyshort: This is a super soft rayon/spandex print from Girl Charlee.
Iris Bralette: Lace is from Cindy Lace Show on Etsy, pink piping elastic along the neckline and underarm edge is from Sew Sassy, pink 1/2" strap elastic and plush picot elastic are from Tailor Made Shoppe.
Tanja Boyshort: 3/8" plain picot elastic is from saleandbargain on Ebay.
Iris Bralette: I wanted to play with having sheer cups (and back extension) with lace overlays. The only difficult part is finding all the fabrics in matching colors. I took a chance and ordered the fabrics from the same source, and luckily they match decently well. The lace is more of a lavender than pink, but I think it still goes well with the other fabrics.
Tanja Boyshort: Along with the floating gusset, my other pet peeve about most boyshorts is that the leg openings are usually finished with a plain folded back hem. I feel like this gets stretched out during the day and then too much of my bum cheek hangs out the back. I prefer to feel secure, so I created an option for the boyshort that has an elastic finish on the leg.
Hello, sewing friends! Yesterday I learned there was a problem with using PayPal on my website. So if you tried to make a purchase and it didn't go through, I apologize. It has been fixed now, and hopefully will keep working.
Just a reminder that through the month of April, 50% of the proceeds from the Tanja Boyshort will be donated to my local food pantry, the Harker Heights Food Care Center. This is a difficult time we are living in, and I want to do my part and help those in need.
And now, here is another featured set of the week:
