This week's set features beautiful bright turquoise and some lovely roses and lace.
Iris Bralette uses 95/5 cotton/spandex jersey, around 200 gms/m2, from unknown origin. It has been in my stash for awhile and I can't remember where I bought it. The lining is a stretch mesh from Spandex World. The light aqua power net is also from Spandex World.
Sunflower Panty uses a lightweight rayon/spandex jersey print from Girl Charlee. These are scraps leftover from my Mirri Top.
Iris Bralette: Uses elastics I had leftover from various projects, hand dyed by me to a lovely bright turquoise. I was lucky that the 624 Turquoise jacquard dye from Dharma Trading just happened to match my fabric perfectly.
Sunflower Panty: All edges are finished with a very soft 1/2" stretch lace I received in a stretch lace value pack from Fabric Depot Co.
Iris Bralette: While cotton/spandex isn't the most supportive fabric, I prefer breathable fabrics in the bras I wear for exercising. This is one of the prototypes for my pattern, and as you can see I sewed the straps with the O-ring at the front. I always struggle with attaching the ring at the front because of so many bulky layers. After making this sample, I decided I preferred to have the ring at the back. A folded over back strap attachment felt much more secure to me.
Sunflower Panty: I'm not really a fan of thongs, and usually only wear them when necessary with fitted pants and skirts. So when I made this panty, I wanted to be sure all the edges would be very soft and comfortable. I think I prefer lace over elastics for this particular style.
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.
