Wouldn't it be fun to sew up an all matching His and Hers Kit? If this kit is well received, expect to see more! We think our "Trees" winter print is a fabulous place to start with this fresh idea for a sewing project. We think the gorgeous, mist enshrouded, enchanted forest print we call Trees combined with the heavenly soft feel of our bamboo jersey will appeal equally to men and women for underthings. We thought it would be handy to have everything you needed for a bra or bralette and panty for yourself AND a pair of ultra soft, fashionable underwear for your man all in one kit! Monica of Bravo Bella put together the adorable His and Hers underwear pictured here using the Sweet Sixteen Bralette pattern, Bravo Bottoms #2 and Bramakers Supply"s Men's Underwear pattern. As always, there is no pattern included in your kit, we are leaving that choice up to you!
The Trees print featured in this His and Hers kit is luxurious, with a 4-way stretch and perfect recovery. Bamboo jersey is a great fabric for underwear -- antibacterial, breathable, soft, light, airy and altogether yummy. Because the print is a 4-way stretch knit you can cover the band of your bra with the print for an all-over look. The bra kit will come with your choice of Frost or Midnight materials underneath. You may choose either Frost or Midnight for your band materials and the channeling for under the cups. If you use Frost, the colors will appear more true. If you choose to go with Midnight it will blend well with the print for a more cohesive look but the colors will be softened. You will also get Frost or Midnight twill tape. If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. If you want an elastic strap it will come in Frost. The hook and eye unit will also be Frost. Some gals like to use Spacer Foam under the cups to add a bit more body to the cup, and you can order a kit cut of spacer in Frost or Midnight for this purpose.
Bamboo jersey is also a beautiful fabric for panties! You can pair your bamboo jersey print with any of our panty elastics in Frost. The Wide Daisy Elastic is a great waistband and helps avoid that dreaded muffin top. Our panty picots are soft and a breeze to apply. Our ultra-thin gives you stealth panties. The elastic is so thin that it disappears. The foldover elastics are great, and lots of patterns give great instructions for applying them. I especially like the fancy foldover. The plush is super soft and the fold line in the middle makes applying it easy peasy. Finally, choose our 1/2" or 1/4" non-picot elastic for an enclosed elastic option. You can choose to double or triple the yardages of your panty elastics and they'll be cut as a single piece. This gives you the best utilization of your elastics. This kit will also come with 1-1/2 yards of Wide Plush Elastic in Frost for the waistband of the Men's Underwear.
