August is Sewcialist's Tribute Month. I have been inspired by Madalynne to create a lingerie challenge. While I did not have an entire 48 hours free to undertake my challenge, I was able to complete my lingerie in under 20 hours combined. I assumed that with sleep, eating, and other necessities at weekend challenge boils down to about 30 hours of sewing time. So I set my timer and started sewing. I am new to lingerie sewing, so I did not replicate the three bras and three panties that Madalynne created, but I did make a long line bra for the first time, as well as a regular bra and two pairs of panties.
Madalynne was my Tribute Month inspiration because she makes beautiful lingerie. Everything is so professional and polished. She's also creates wonderfully enviable garments.
The long line bra is amazing. I used plastic boning which makes it flexible enough so that I can move, but still adds support. I bought all the supplies at Bra Maker's Supply when I was taking the bra making class in July.
I love this lace. The black and pink play nicely with the burgundy and black fabrics. I love how the lace looks completely different when placed on different backgrounds.
I cut the straps off of a seldom worn bra and attached them to my long line bra. The straps are detachable at the back to offer more options such as crisscross and halter neck.
