People say to me they think they are not good enough at sewing to make their own undies, and I would totally disagree!
I started making my own lingerie about 10 years ago! It is not only the fact you can actually get your undies to fit you PERFECTLY but the creativity and achievement you can feel! Undies are the first piece of clothing you put on in the morning so you want that to be your best!
People say to me they think they are not good enough at sewing to make their own undies, and I would totally disagree! Like everything you don’t start with the hardest thing but the easiest thing and then work your way up. Most people are actually quite surprised how much easier it is than they thought! I created the beginner Penny pattern for exactly this reason, take a look on the shop!
If that’s not pricked your ear, I’ll give your the complete lowdown of my lingerie making story…
What our customers say
"What a fabulous pattern! It is such a comfortable design and fit and so pretty. I’ve made both the high and low waist and they’re both true to size."
"Really lovely materials (generous yardage and quality trims) along with super clear instructions. Not only this, but Yelena was great to deal with. I had enough main fabric for two pairs of panties and learnt foundation lingerie making skills via the kit. Highly recommended."
"I absolutely love this pattern! I was lucky to try out one of the bralettes and knee immediately I wanted to make my own!
I’ve already made two and I have a third on the way. The pattern itself is very clear and has photos to help guide you along the way. If you made any form of underwear before you’ll probably find it nice and easy.
My only quibble would be I found the text was a tiny bit small on the printed version, but I think it comes with the nature of fitting in a cute little pattern pack.
Highly recommended this pattern and bralette, they are soooooo comfortable! Definitely worth giving a go!"
