Hey, step aside and let the addict have her fix! Things are a little trying right now (we are having a deck built in the garden and that is causing us a little stress) - so I have retreated to my happy place to make pretty things - always a 'cheer me up'!!
Also, it turns out that the lovely lacey pink bra that I showed you last week . . . . .
Is somewhat uncomfortable to wear :(
That 'oh so pretty' gathered netting trim on the strap, runs along the armhole - and scratches like an 'I-don't-know-what'. Grr. What a nightmare. What is to be done? I know, make a similar one with the trim where it should be - on the neckline!
So this is version two - I used the 'Classic Bra' pattern this time which used trim across the top of the cups, and some leftover netted lace from my moulded cup bra:
No more scratchiness!!
And then I made a couple of others. I have been wanting to make a chocolate coloured bra for ages, well, at least since my course! I paired up the fabric with some lovely coffee coloured lace that actually looks nude when I wear it:
And then I wanted to use up the leftover lace from my first turquoise bra. Here is the original - using the finished edge of the lace to form the wings of the butterfly:
And on this bra the finished edge is on the top edge of the cups.
This means that when buying lace which is 5"/6" wide - there is a lot of leftover lace . . . . . so this is what I made!
I saved just a little lace with an edge attached to trim the bridge - I think it looks pretty good!
So there we have it - another three pretties to add to my collection . . . but still no knickers. I really must concentrate on knickers! And I will. I promise!
How about you - are you easily sidetracked by projects that are quick and you know will turn out well, despite knowing you should be making something else??
