hello sewing, my old friend. life has been real dark and shitty recently, so i finally decided to take David’s advice and sew something.
i drafted this pattern after a camisole i LOVE by Mary Green. my favorite thing about the camisole is the lace down the center—it’s actually two pieces of scalloped edge lace sewn together, and the fabric of the camisole has been cut away behind it. i also really like the darts. i managed to finish my own version of it in about 3 hours. it’s really very simple, the only annoying/picky part is laying & pinning the lace. i did a test run with some old goofy ~~~punk~~~ jersey from joann’s that’s been sitting in my stash for ages.
in the first pic i’ve cut my pattern pieces, sewn my darts, and i’m pinning the lace down the center, only to realize i need to sew my two pieces of lace together first and then sew them to the camisole. so i hauled it all off again.
i tacked the center lace pieces together with a bit of glue, then pinned and sewed them, and pinned the whole lace inlay down again, sewed it to the camisole fabric, then cut the fabric away. it worked real well! in the second pic i’ve done all that and i’m starting to piece the top and bottom lace.
the third picture is all done! the back panel is a big rectangle with a piece of elastic sewn down the center for fit, so that was pretty easy to throw together. the front was simple enough, just a bit picky. the final fit is pretty good! it’s a bit tighter than i’d anticipated at the waist, but that’s likely because i didn’t include enough room for the darts. next time i’ll add extra seam allowance & an extra 1” to the bottom.
now to make the matching panties! actually, now to shower and hurry to work. hurray!
I…I just……I want…things……
I want ALL of these things all of them EVERYTHING.
everything about this is completely perfect: color, cut (especially the back!!!) material, model. i tracked down the source: it’s the Danae Lace/Ribbon Bodysuit by Sonata Lingerie, this pic via Intimates Plus. it’s ~$200 or i’d buy it immediately.
when my mom visited i was all “OH MY GOD DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN SEW YOUR OWN BRAS” and. she did not. hahaha. i want to make all of the things in these pictures. D:
