This Trees Bamboo Jersey print takes the skiing motif from our Sun Valley prints to a whole new level. This beautiful print perfectly depicts one of those high altitude, mountain days that the clouds have descended enough to snuggle into the pine covered mountains and valleys and shroud the world in magic. The foggy mistiness softens the deep, forest green of the alpine timberlands to make it a beautiful print for lingerie.
We have noticed that there are a lot of folks buying a Bralette Kit and a Panty Kit in our Bamboo Jerseys so we decided to try an all in one Bralette and Panty Kit with this print and see how it goes! Our Trees is digitally printed on soft and dreamy bamboo jersey and it makes a darling bralette. You might not want to put on an underwired bra, you might want to wear a lounge bralette instead. There are so many darling bralette patterns out there, and bralettes are a great option for many women. Whether you like wearing bralettes as your standard choice or if you want an option to wear around the house, you can make just what you want with our comprehensive bralette kits. All the elastics for this kit come in our standard Frost and are the perfect complement to this winter print.
The fabric is soft and stretchy, and for more support you'll want to use some sort of a base fabric layer to add support on the back band, which is what the Power Net is in the kit to do. This is a fabric that can be used for that extra something that it will give unless your support level is very light. Sometimes you still want a little more and for that we offer the option to add a kit cut of Spacer Foam in Frost or Midnight. Spacer foam is about 1/16" thick, is lightweight but substantial, breathable, and has a 4-way stretch. It is a different fabric than a cut and sew foam, which is thicker and primarily suitable for a lining only. For support, you would use it like any Lycra fabric, cutting it so that there is a little bit of negative ease. I remove the seam allowances within the cup and butt the seams together. Then I sew them together with a 3-step zigzag, running a piece of tissue paper under the fabric while I sew so that it doesn't creep on me. I keep the seam allowances on the band side and sew it into the band just like I would any other fabric.
The bralette portion of this kit will include a stable sheer lining for the front frame. We will also include regular weight power net to line the back band. You may choose Frost or Midnight for these fabrics. The kit come standard with a picot elastic option, or you may wish to choose the Foldover Elastic option. For reference, the Watson bralette uses picot elastic and the Sweet Sixteen bralette uses foldover elastic. The bralette pictured here was created for us by Monica of Bravo Bella using the Sweet Sixteen Bralette Pattern. For the darling boy-short she used Bravo Bottoms #2. As always, our kits do not come with a pattern included, we are leaving that choice up to you!
Bamboo jersey is also a beautiful fabric for panties! It is exceptionally soft, breathable, and is reported to be anti-microbial also. It has a lovely soft stretch and perfect recovery. You can pair your bamboo jersey print with any of our panty elastics. 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. For the panty portion of the kit, you will receive 2-1/2 Yards of 3/4" Foldover Elastic as a Standard offering, or you may choose one of our other panty elastics. You may also 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.
