Did you make all the undie stuff from scratch? On the bra/panty set, from the pictures, I assume you traced a pre-exsiting pair for the pattern, but please give details on what types of fabrics you used etc... Now you have the wheels turning in my head about making myself some undies... wheee!  Grin

I'd imagine it would be a bit like making a swimsuit?

You had the password on there all along, didn't you? Wink  *smacks forehead*

Great undies! Did you use a pettern, or make your own pattern? And the camisoles....
And the bra! How did you do that?

The white with hearts set, I purchased the panties from wally world for $3 and adorned them.  The camisole I drew from my sports bra pattern.  I used some really stretchy cotton lycra for it with 1 1/2" knit elastic for the underbra and satin bias tape for the straps.

The black set, I traced a pair that fit me and cut them out of black cotton jersey knit... lycra would have been better but hubby bought the knit for me.  I edged them in black fold over elastic... wonderful stuff, covers all sorts of evils, binds and elasticates where you need it in one step.   Before putting the waistband on I cut a V in the centre back.  Edged it in fold over elastic and then cut and arranged polka dot ribbons and stitched them down.  Then I put the waistband on.

It would be very easy to adapt a bought pair... unpick the waistband, cut the V, bind it, put the ribbon on and then put the waistband back...

The black bra, it was a sweet nothings from Walmart... sweater/tshirt bra... molded foam cups covered in thin stretchy microfiber.  I cut along the cleavage edge and pulled the microfiber back out of the way.  Then I tried the bra on and drew the line I wanted.  Cut away the foam and then stretched the microfiber back over the edge.  I stitched it down on the machine and then stitched the polka dot ribbon on top.

!!!  The black bra and panty set is so incredibly cute!  I love the polka dot ribbon.
