Coletterie Truly Victorian Home - Victory Patterns Professional lingerie patterns and sewing supplies — Make Bra Today I’m experimenting how a georgette fabric works as a bra and brief material. A primary reason why I picked up this particular fabric from the fabric store were these beautiful roses. A lot of them in different sizes and shapes, bringing a real challenge to the design. Freedom to choose the most beautiful ones. The Georgette Fabric Let’s examine the fabric a little more detail. Preparing the Cup Cover Georgette fabric is easily fraying and therefore it is wise to minimize the amount/length of seams if possible. Decorating the Briefs It’s difficult to use a non stretch fabric as a brief material because garment must be so highly elastic. The Result The rose gardener’s bra and brief set looks rather pretty, feels great when wearing, but what happens when the set will be washed the first time?

Couture | Jolies bobines Ah Géraldine / République du chiffon, j’te kiffe ! Encore une pure merveille ! Son dernier patron, la robe Georgina, m’a encore une fois tapé dans l’œil avec son double décolleté dans le dos. Et puis, quand j’ai ouvert le fichier en avant-première (j’ai pris beaucoup de retard), une belle surprise, un patron impeccable avec des tracés de couleurs différentes pour chaque taille, des pièces séparées sur la planche, donc pas besoin retracer sur le calque, des schémas super clairs, et 9 pièces, que 9 ! Ah Géraldine / République du chiffon you rocks ! Et avec Julia…. Escarpins : Patricia Blanchet Bracelet : Anne Thomas Like this: J'aime chargement…

Independent Sewing Patterns for the Plus-Sized Sewist - The Finished Garment The Big List of Plus Size Independent Pattern Designers Am I plus-sized? I don’t know. It all depends on what plus-size means. But I do know that I love independent pattern companies, and their patterns do not always come in my size. So I’ve put together a list of sewing patterns companies that make things a bit bigger (plus-size, curvy, full-figured?) This list was last updated on August 3, 2014. Women Men For each company, I’ve listed the largest size they carry (in their own sizing terms, which vary quite a bit) and the largest bust/chest size in inches, since it is a measurement that is universally listed. Since the average bust measurement is 40″, according to Size USA, I’m listing everything above. Women Independent pattern companies bust 41″-43″ Independent pattern companies that go up to size EUR 46, US size 20, bust 41″-43″. Independent pattern companies bust 43″-45″ Independent pattern companies that go up to size EUR 48, US size 22, bust 43″-45″. Independent pattern companies bust 54+”

aime comme Marie — Home E SEW LUTTERLOH WITH ME: The Lutterloh System Symbols Page Revisited The Lutterloh Patterns have always used a symbols page to mark their sewing instructions and pattern pieces. We get lots of questions from users of these patterns that I hope to explain here. Here is a photo of a symbols page from a 2014 supplement of Lutterloh patterns. The most recent addition to the chart is the bottom symbol that looks like an outline of a dress form which indicates these patterns are for very slim figures. The XXL system, which is a completely different system with it's own unique measuring scale, should only be used by those with a bust or hip measurement of at least 130cm. Just remember that both design ease and wearing ease are built into all the Lutterloh Patterns. Now I'd like to address some of the FAQs that are posted as comments to our blog. The photo above shows both a one piece and two piece sleeve. Before you cut them apart you'll also want to mark the grain-line to get them the same for both pieces. General Sewing and Construction:
