The Ooh La La Pin-Up Sew-Along

By on February 18, 2012

Ladies, I present the Ooh la la Pin-Up Sew-Along:

Ooh la la!

Fellow blogger and lingerie expert Sarah from Ohhh Lulu is joining me over at A Few Threads Loose in this delicate endeavor. We’ll be sewing two lingerie patterns, first a 1950’s French Corset and Garter Belt pattern (so much easier than it sounds!) followed by a matching bra from the same pattern.

There’s more information over on A Few Threads Loose on where to get the patterns and what you’ll need to sew them. One commenter will even win a set for the sew-along. These things are so much more fun when more people are involved sharing their questions and skills. We’d love to have you join and find out just how easy and painless lingerie sewing can be!

The Vintage Lingerie Sew-Along is half done!

By on November 4, 2011

Hello all, a few weeks ago I posted that I would be starting a vintage lingerie sew-along over on my blog A Few Threads Loose using this vintage pattern reproduction PDF.

We have finished with the bra and tap pants and we’ll soon be starting on the matching slip and camisole. You’re all still welcome to join and give lingerie a try!

This being my first sew along, and with a vintage pattern that had a couple of small design flaws, it was an interesting go round… plus I totally bombed matching my plaids due to a fabric shortage and a vodka overabundance.
