I sewed a little bralette and matching panties. I drafted the patterns myself from my personal sloper. Wow is that a lot of work. I had to redraft the panties twice with lots of tweaking. I am very happy with them now. They feature a woven fabric center panel with stretch lace on the side. The center fabric is quilting cotton cut on the bias. This worked surprisingly well. It has a bit of give this way and hugs the curves of the body nicely.
A detail shot
My fabric print is almost identical to this liberty print. I have been experimenting with drafting a panty that is made out of woven fabrics, I have some silk I want to make up into panties. My liberty fabric arrived yesterday and I’m thinking it would make nice underwear too. The bralette was drafted from this pattern I made for a summer camisole. I was inspired by this lingerie from The Cherry Blossom Girl (no longer available). I believe it is made of Liberty Tana lawn. Not sure because I can’t read French very well, but isn’t it cute!
Up next summer shorty pjs from one of these fabrics. Which one do you like?
