A lingerie set of one bra and two panties in black and white. The pattern is Merckwaerdigh Mix30 for both the bra and panties. This is a multisize pattern with the description as follows: Pattern MIX30 from Dutch design Merckwaerdigh with a good supporting underwired bra, lovely hipster pantie & all lace knickers. This pattern does requires some experience in home made lingerie.
I have used the panties pattern for my previous sets but this time I wanted to try the bra pattern as well. Before making this set, I made a muslin with leftover jersey for the cup only to test the fit. It turned out that my size for Merckwaerdigh pattern is 30C instead of 30B that I usually wear.
The fit is great and they are really comfortable! I love how the shape of the side cup gives good support. When attaching the elastic on the underbust band, I cut my elastic 20% shorter than the whole band to make sure that they fit snugly around my body.
