I couldn't produce patterns without all the hard work and dedication from my pattern testers. I really enjoy seeing their creative choices for my designs, and it is my pleasure to share with you their work. Here is the tester roundup for the Desiree Bra.
Happy New Year, dear sewists! After a short winter holiday, I am back at work. Today I wanted to share with you a pattern hack for my latest panty pattern, the Tulip Hi-Cut. While developing this pattern, I had considered a lace back option, but I already had too many varations. During my holiday, I decided to come back to that idea and try it out as a pattern hack. I hope you enjoy the following tutorial. Happy Sewing!
I made myself a bra and realized at the very end that the bridge wasn't wide enough at the bottom. Instead of tossing it (or torturing myself by being squished) I realized I could add more room to the width of the bridge. Separator wire to the rescue!
One of the biggest rewards for me in creating lingerie patterns is helping sewists tweak patterns to get the perfect fit for their bodies. I think many of us turn to sewing our own clothes when we can't find what we want or need in the stores, and sewing at home can be a lonely and sometimes frustrating experience when our projects don't turn out right.
Over the last couple of years I have created quite a few blog posts for pattern alterations to get the perfect fit in bras/bralettes and panties. I have a blog category in my sidebar where you can find them all, but with so many now it is a bit cumbersome to scroll through them all. So, I have created a single page dedicated to the pattern alteration posts, and you can find what you need more easily. I hope these alterations are helpful for you to get the perfect fit.
If there are any other pattern fitting topics for bras and panties you'd like to see, leave me a comment below.
Until next time,
Today I am going to share with you two ways to adjust the gusset length. There are two possible issues when it comes to gusset length, and each has a different solution. The gusset length can either be too short, and extra length is needed, or the gusset position on the body is incorrect (but the overall length is fine) and the position needs to be readjusted.
Problem: The gusset length is too short
Today I am sharing with you the beautiful creations of my pattern testers. Not only do they help me iron out problems and inconsistencies with the instructions, they inspire me with their creative choices in colors and fabrics. I hope you enjoy seeing their work as much as I do.
I was so happy to see my UPS man today when he delivered my Ditto Form! Here she is, modeling a bra I've been working on.
I design lingerie sewing patterns for everyday comfort and feminine style in an inclusive size range. Fill up your underwear drawer with beautiful custom made panties in your favorite fabrics and trims, designed to fit your body.
