Our Kits take the guesswork out of lingerie building by putting together everything you'll need to make beautiful lingerie using your own pattern.
It's October, so we all expect something black and orange. This is a new version of black and orange :). The orange isn't carrots, it's Burnished Copper, and it's gorgeous. It's an October bra that you can wear all year long. We're loving the netted tulle, the intricate embroidery and the subtle coppery accents that gave rise to our Fall 2021 seasonal color Burnished Copper. Our Featured Artist Nadine was inspired by this lace, and here's her explanation...
"This one reminded me of the Beldam’s garden which she created for Coraline in the movie of the same name. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the movie or the book but Coraline finds a secret door to a „mirror world“ of her own. On first glance she prefers this world over her own reality but is then in for a big surprise (no spoilers here). Her „other mother“ (the Beldam) rules the other world and creates this stunning garden just for Coraline… Very Halloween-y. I’d use the Vivien bra pattern to create a partial band bra so both cups look like two patches of said garden. The black partial band represents the fact that - apart from what the Beldam created for Coraline - you can’t find anything else of substance in the „other world“. And the straps (not sure if all black would be better) represent the illusion "hanging by a thread"…"
After all, there is something kind of entrancing about lace panties. One of the benefits of building your own lingerie is that you can have all sorts of matching sets! For the days when you want to feel pretty underneath, make up a pair of darling lace panties to match your Coraline Lace Bra.
We love to make sure that you get just what you want, so feel free to change this kit up with all the options. The standard kit comes with 1 1/2 yards of rigid lace, a fat quarter of your choice of stretchy fabric, a yard of Looped Picot elastic, a yard and a half of Foldover elastic and a 9" square of cotton jersey. You can choose your waistband and leg elastic and can double or triple it if you would like more elastic to work with. You can also choose to add a fat quarter or half yard of Microlycra or Stretch Mesh in either Midnight or Burnished Copper. If you add a fat quarter of stretchy fabric you'll get a total of 1/2 yard. If you add a half yard you'll have 3/4 yards. If you prefer strap elastic to either the waist or leg elastic please just leave us a note.
