First off, check out the interview I did as part of Muse Pattern’s Meet the Maker series! It was a blast to be a part of. You all know I’m a big Muse Patterns fan. I’m also a pattern tester, but I wouldn’t be doing that if I didn’t love them. 🙂 Second, one of … More Progress Report
Oh you were expecting a non-lingerie post…. I’m the worst. I swear I have a bunch of non-lingerie garments to share. I just need to find the time to take pictures. Sooooon. This was originally posted on the Curvy Sewing Collective for Lingerie Month. Today I am reviewing the free (YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT!) Maya Bra … More Maya Bra
Yep, more lingerie. I am not sorry for this! I love it! That being said, I will have a v-neck Jenna cardi and a Jenna top to share with you soon. This is my latest cloned bra, the Garden bra. Why the Garden bra? I have an entire garden of little flowers sewn to the bridge … More Garden Bra
I know, I know….All I am sewing lately is lingerie. I swear I will get back to other kinds of sewing soon, but Lingerie Month at the Curvy Sewing Collective is consuming my life! Shameless Plug: Check out my Cloning a bra post and my Bra Materials post. Just an FYI, I hate the word … More Barrie Briefs
Do you remember long ago I asked for a name for this bra? Nicole came up with Desert Sunset. I cut out the bra back in August and then it sat around for quite a while…. I made some modifications from the last bra: increased the lower cup, moved the apex slightly to match my … More Desert Sunset Bra
This is a post about a bra. I grew up with the English dubbed version of Sailor Moon. It was my favourite show and I would watch it endlessly. This was before we could download shows or stream them. I taped tons of Sailor Moon and ran home at various time from school to watch. … More Agent of Love and Exams, the pretty sailor suited soldier Sailor Mercury!
Well, my plans for the lingerie ended up all over the place. I did make the bra and I will be making the camisole, but left out the tap shorts and the underwear. I just didn’t want to fiddle with the bottoms and have been feeling stressed by it and not wanting to do it. … More The Wedding Lingerie
Disclaimer: there is swearing in this post. I sort of knew going into this project that it might fail horribly. I have huge boobs, after all, and the phrase “lounge bra” as Seamwork calls it doesn’t really fit with huge boobs, even if my measurements are within the pattern’s specifications. I wanted to try it … More Seamwork’s Florence Lounge Bra
I’m not a Star Wars fan (I don’t mind it, but I am a fan of Star Trek all the way; I prefer technical scifi), but I can never resist a geeky reference in a blog title or anywhere really. Disclaimer: This is the post of lists….. So many lists in this post. I like … More Attack of the Bra Clone!
November 28/29, I took a beginner bra making course at Bra Maker’s Supply in Hamilton, ON, Canada. If you ever have an opportunity to take a class there or anywhere with Beverly Johnson, I suggest that you take it! Beverly Johnson is called the Fairy Bra Mother and she is definitely that. She fits bras so … More Beginner Bra Making Workshop at the Bra Maker’s Supply in Hamilton, ON
