Happy Friday, my sewing friends! This will be short, I just wanted to show the handmade panties I made some days ago. Yes, I make my own lingerie too, at least panties for now.! This is a thing can only seamstress understand and couple of friends who own the panties you made for them :). I use to sew some panties as a gift for my friend and also for myself. We both just love these, they are so comfortable and our most loved and worn panties.

I used Watson bikini pattern and it’s great, just perfect.  Thank You, Amy for such a great pattern. It is easy to sew , small project that you can make in short time and can finally use those tiny fabric scraps sitting in you fabric box for awhile. And this is a sewing project you can make also only with your sewing machine.  I used serger for side seams, but you can also use you sewing machine and don’t need to own the serger to make them perfect.  For the rest you need only zigzag stitch on your machine. Isn’t that great?

And here are some old ones I made last year. I took photos from my Instagram, because I just can’t find them on my desktop anymore. And there are even more who are lost in my pictures.

Here are couple of my favorite online resources for lingerie making:

  • Cloth Habit – Watson bra & bikini pattern and great source of tutorials how to make your own lingerie.
  • Madalynne  – such an inspirational blog about lingerie making, free and cost lingerie patterns.
  • Ohhh Lulu – handmade lingerie to buy or make your own, sewing patterns, tutorials. Here are the tutorial how to sew knits without a serger.
  • Lingerie Elastic 3 ways – all the stitches you need to know to make your panties. Very easy tutorial to follow!
  • If you are Latvian, I suggest you to follow Kniepadatas blogs. Girl writes about sewing and lingerie making in Latvian language and she even going to teach classes about lingerie making.

Do you sew your own lingerie? What is your favorite thing about underwear making?

    Paldies par iedvsmu apakšveļas šūšanai! Kaut kā biju no tā atgājusi, lai gan patīk ļoti. Ir gan Watson piegrieztne, gan vairākas Ohhh Lulu versijas. Uzšuvu arī Madalynne Sierra top, bet ar visu to, ka ņēmu L izmēru, to man nācās atdot lielajai meitai:) Viņai gan labi der, gan labi izskatās. Vai Merckwaerdigh piegrieztnes neesi iemēģinājusi? Sporta augšiņām man ļoti patīk Jalie piedāvātais – uz sitiena gan modeļa numuru neatceros.
    P.S. Tava mājaslapa ir bauda acīm – prieks!

      Merckwaerdigh ir pētīts un saglabāts, bet piegrieztnes neesmu izmēģinājusi. Watson bra man sarakstā, kad beigšu barot mazuli :). Un paldies par Jalie rekomendāciju, šo nezināju, būs sīkāk jāizpēta. Skatos feini sporta legingi tur.
      Paldies par komplimentu mājas lapai. Nu centos un centīšos arī turpmāk veidot baudīgu 😉

    Man šķiet vēl jāizaug līdz apakšveļas šūšanai, taču skatoties kā citi to dara ar vien tuvojos tam brīdim, kad pieķeršos 🙂 Paldies par iedvesmu!

      Noteikti ir vērts pamēģināt un tas ir atkarību izraisoši 🙂 Apenītes nu dien nav grūti šūt! No augšiņām pagaidām vienu “brallet” esmu tikai sašuvusi. Nākotnē noteikti jāizmēģina krūštura šūšana 🙂
