As you know earlier, I was searching for the perfect pair of panties, well I'm getting closer, but it's still not NVPL material, but they're so cute, and comfortable, and washable....tweaked from Kwik Sew pattern 2325.
Made by Moi!
This was my muslin. - Black crepe de Chine
Second attempt - Silk Jacquard flowers
I've vowed to clear out my scrap stash (because let's face it, I'm never going to make that crazy quilt :).
Peach charmeuse with vintage lace.
Once a year I tackle the pile of vintage laces my mother collected. I wash them, dry them, iron them, and wrap them up for storage. There were two large cuts that did this.... and they were the last two I had from that batch.
It's easier to get through them if they aren't treated as one long length, so I thought about where I could use them..... how can I use the scraps I've accumulated from these projects .... hmmmm
Despite looking like bloomers, they fit very well. It's because they were made from wovens instead of a knit that they look all poofy and gathered. Stella McCartney has some in her lingerie collection but they have the days of the week on them.
You can see them here at Nieman Marcus and they're only $195.00 for the set.
I like mine better, these are silk rayon, with lace trim.
These are a lightweight swiss dot with lace trim.
Here's the back....
