SEW AND DRAFT YOUR OWN 10-PIECE LINGERIE COLLECTION!
Lingerie might be the ultimate sewing challenge and it can seem challenging to make a bra on your own. The good news: It’s not!
Sewing lingerie is rewarding, exciting and A LOT easier than you might think! Being able to make your own underwear and bra is a great way to personalize your wardrobe, and a great way to get creative and experiment with fabrics, prints, and textures.
Recently I attended a 1940s summer ball. It was a great night of dancing, mingling with military veterans, vintage fashion and people watching. I have never seen so many women dressed up outside of a wedding or other formal event. It was such a wonderful experience to see women who had taken care and pride in picking out a particular dress. You could see it in the way they carried themselves, they way the fussed over keeping the dress clean and so on.
We hope you are doing well with the Soma Swimsuit Sew Along. We are moving into the construction part of it and how to make your suit look like RTW. Once you make one suit you’ll most likely never go back to buying a swimsuit. You’ll love the fit so much. So, let’s have Rhonda take it away.
