Here is my next project...M5668

I’ve had this for sometime now and I have the perfect fabric for it. It’s a black Pique that I got on line. I am going to fully line it. From the guide sheet only the sleeves are lined. I like it because it seems pretty straight forward; no button holes. I want the fabric to speak. I like the sleeve length because I can show off one of the bracelets that I made. For this one I am going to have to do a few alterations, hip alterations.

I will take a pic of the fabric that I will be using later.

Making a bra....finished!!!

The bra is finished. Will make again before the end of the year. It was fun! I need wider straps for better support. When I sew foundations I like to use up my bobbin threads. I really don't care if the colors don't match. It's for it is!!!

Making a bra....

Well I missed national sewing month. Better luck next year, God willing. I’ve decided to make a bra. I’ve made them in the past and have had great results. I am a “firm” believer in having the proper foundations. Whether you are a size 2 or 22 and beyond, I think you should always have your foundations in check. I will be working with KS2374. I think I have all the fixins’ in my lingerie stash. The size range on this pattern is 42 – 46 C-DDD.

Since my last post, I’ve stacked all of my fabric, will have picture soon. It’s almost to the ceiling. I have decided to just use my fancy wire shelve for my patterns and current projects.
So after I do a few loads of laundry, I will copy onto my tissue paper. I am the same size as my Just My Size ready to wear…42DD.
When I look at my profile in an old bra it ain’t pretty. I have one or two that are “holding” up ok. But about 3 that should be tossed.
I will post the fabric that I will be using on here. It’s going to be an animal print. I like to walk on the wild side sometimes! I’ve had the fabric for a while now. I think I got it from I feel funny when I say where I got something. I feel like I am advertising.

The fabric and pattern. The pattern could be out of print, not too sure.
