Sponsor Feature: Rustic Gem Jewelry

At each and every bra workshop, details count. Details, details, details. The fabric and trims, the food, the decor – I try as much as I can to have it all “go”. Included in that are the goody bags. No party – and my workshops ARE a party – would be complete without a goody bag. Amirite or amirite?

A ‘Continental’ Bra Making with Madalynne Workshop

Excuse me while I step onto my soapbox… Last Saturday was the 16th Bra Making with Madalynne workshop. Sixteen, woot woot! It was a ‘Continental’ Class with folks traveling from Virginia, Florida, Texas and California to attend. I’m blushing 🙂 Stepping off my soap box now… At the beginning of the day, students are usually quiet.

Out With The Old, In With The New I Spring Clean Your Undie Drawer

I am reminding myself of my mother today when she would tell me to wash my face and brush my teeth every night. Thanks ma! Because of her nightly reminders, I have a pretty decent complexion and half pearly whites as I creep up to 30-years-old. Yikes! So spring has sprung. That’s right y’all, time to refresh.

Eep! Crotch Linings Explained

Crotch lining is like the word moist. For some, it’s NBD to say. For others, let’s just say it doesn’t roll off the tip of their tongue mellifluously. I think it’s better than saying genital lining, don’t you think? Perspective people! It’s all about perspective. Crotch linings are a necessary component of undies, however, they aren’t discussed much.

Spring Inspiration

By no means was it a brutal winter. I remember two years ago when the ‘polar vortex’ had us in the negative degrees for what seemed like weeks on end. I get chills just thinking about it. How in the heck did this Floridian make it through without packing her bags and saying sayonara to the

LBB: Little Black Bra

While the fun in fashion comes from taking style risks, I’m the type of person who always goes back to black. Have you ever noticed that most of my me-made lingerie is black, white or cream? I’ve thrown in a burnt orange bodysuit here and a blush pink set there to add some flavor to my lingerie

A Yellow and Ivory lingerie set: Simplicity 8228 B and Montgomery panties

EN Summary: When I saw this yellow lace at Bodil’s Bwear.se I remembered the envelope photo of Simplicity 8228; unfortunately the length of lace I had ordered wasn’t enough to make the complete set (at least for my size) so I opted for making a pair of matching panties which take considerably less lace, the Montgomery briefs from Orange Lingerie. Keep reading the full review. 
PT Sumário: Mal vi esta renda amarela na loja online BWear.se, lembrei-me logo das fotos do envelope Simplicity 8228; infelizmente a quantidade de renda que encomendei não foi suficiente para fazer o conjunto completo no meu tamanho (só sobrou um bocadinho depois de fazer o soutien), por isso optei por usar um molde diferente para a parte de baixo, as cuecas Montgomery da Orange Lingerie.

What I Made: Sawyer (Madalynne X Simplicity 8229 Remix)

I know, I know, I sound like a broken record in every introduction of a ‘What I Made’ post. I said it at the beginning of Amari, that fabulously flared burnt orange bodysuit, and I’ll say it again. I don’t know how the heck I squeezed out this me-made. Unlike Amari, this number wasn’t a spontaneous make. Oh

Beige over black Lingerie set (Harriet Bra and Simplicity 8229 panties) – Conjunto de lingerie com renda bege sobre forro negro

EN Summary: I wanted to try the Harriet bra (Amy from Cloth Habit‘s most recent pattern release) because I find its style lines and shape extremely appealing.

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Quick Band Band Alteration (For When You Mess Up!)

Perfection is over rated. That’s a motto I live by and tell all my students. In a perfect world, you and I cut our patterns precisely and sew exactly as the instructions state, but the world ain’t perfect. I’m very much a “cut as I go” type of sewist. Listen, fabrics can shift and stretch out of

Recap: Bra Making With Madalynne February

Valentine’s Day holds a special place in my heart.
