|Pattern Description: |
Petticoat, camisole, slip and underpants
I bought the pattern envelope that included sizes 14 - 22 and made up the size 22
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very clear, detailed and easy to follow. The instructions are for a regular sewing machine due to all the lace inserting, but I am sure you could do the side seams on a surger/overlocker, although I didn't.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like the way you sew the stretch lace onto the fabric and then cut away the fabric from behind to reveal the skin through the lace, very pretty effect.
A patterned two-way stretch jersey that has a slinky feel to it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I followed the designer's instructions on her blog to do a Full Bust Adjustment and made a new pattern piece from the cup D pattern piece by making a 1.5" FBA. I also added 5" to the hemline to make it a bit longer, now it reaches just on top of my knees, and I am 5'7".
The other change I made was to not make it quite as fitted at the waist, I have taken a photo of this alteration and put it on my blog, if you're interested. I blog at Nessa's Place
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It really is nice but no, I won't sew this again. By the time I bought the fabric, elastic, lingerie fasteners and stretch lace it cost a lot more than a simple store-bought slip would have cost me. Plus with all the fiddly pinning to get the lace to sit right, it took almost an entire day.
A fun thing to sew and I am sure I will enjoy wearing it, but not really a cost-effective way for me to have lingerie.
