Ifigure since Valentines Day is so close I can justify sharing my handmade underthings on the blog today! Amy at Cloth Habit rolled out her first pattern inspired by 70's lingerie. I have to admit that I had completely written off the idea of sewing underwear and bras. I figured it was too hard, and a bit too personal. Why would someone sew something that they can't show off? Well my tune has completely 180ed.
First off she does such a great job of walking you through, especially with the sew a long, Thank God for her tutorial on sewing in elastic. Second there is something special about making a piece only you know about. I mean come on, who doesn't feel like a sexy beast in a matching lace set?
But my absolute favorite part is I'm able to make something that fits me perfectly. It may take a couple trial and errors but that's okay, because once you find that right size you're set! No more $40 Victoria Secret bras! No more having to awkwardly get measured by random people! So I have to ask, what are your feelings on this sewing movement of handmade lingerie?
