There has been lots of sewing going on! Since my last post, I’ve completed two bras made from kits from Needle Nook Fabrics plus a muslin top from Hot Patterns. The fabric for the bras were from these kits that I picked up a few weeks ago:
First up is this beauty in turquoise.
I didn’t make any changes from the pattern beyond the last beige one. It’s so fantastic to have a pattern that fits well. Soooooo much better than going to the mall and trying on bras.
Next up was this red lace version.
This one is so pretty… I find the lace on the straps to be a little scratchy, so I may use some other strap solution next time when I make one like this. For this one though, it’s ok…I love how pretty it is. I still have one more kit to make up and it will be similar to the lace one with the lace top and bottom cup, but I will change up the straps into some other fabric. There’s a sheer fabric as part of the lace kits, and I may use that maybe with the lace wrapped inside. I’ll have to mess around with it and see what I like. But it will probably be a little while b/c I think these 4 bras will do me for awhile.
After I finished the lace bra, I made a quick muslin from the Hot Patterns Shirt Tail T pattern. Here’s my test made out of some fabric from the stash.
and on me…
Overall, I was pleased with it. When I make it again, I need to add a couple of inches of length, but that’s it. It went together super easily and I really have no complaints. I need for the right fabric to enter my life though first. I don’t have too many casual knits in my stash.
I think next up is going to be the Hot Patterns Slouchy Fly Front skirt. I’ve always wanted to try that pattern and I didn’t really have anything immediate to make…so I may as well try it first. I will make a muslin most definitely!
