From Sewing Machine to Boudoir: The Magic of Making Your Own Bras and panties at home
I decided to take a little break from historical sewing and make some new sets of bras and panties for myself.
A Romantic Era Corset from Old Curtains
I made myself a romantic era i.e. 1830s-1840s corset and a corded petticoat using a pattern by Black Snail Patterns.
I made a flowery summer bra with the pattern MakeBra DL04 and a few pairs of Acacia underwear panties to go with it.
I made a Victorian silk petticoat out of old curtains!
I turned a pair of thrifted silk curtains into a Victorian silk petticoat. I also dyed my cotton lace to match using common food items.
Victorian underwear: an underskirt and a corset cover
I made a turn-of-the-century underwear set consisting of a pretty 1912 corset cover and a Victorian underskirt by the Black Snail Patterns.
Polkadot bra with Makebra DL04 and matching lace trimmed panties
I made MakeBra DL04 bra and matching panties out of pretty polka-dot lycra fabric and added pretty lace trims. Some free sewing tips are included!
