Satin panties and bustier – BurdaStyle 01/2012 #127, #128
I am trying to reduce my towering pile(s) of vintage fabric, so that means some interesting (even unintended) results. Most of the fabrics in my stash are from the 70’s, and when I discovered this fabric with these beautiful patterns I thought ‘tribal’, as long as this does not constitute cultural misappropriation or anything; though I think it’s fine as it is a complete one-off using but a remnant of the original manufactured fabric. This two piece swimsuit is so comfortable to wear, even if there is only lining in the front and crotch of the pants. The amount of fabric stretch is obviously sufficient for the chosen garment size. It didn’t take long to make at all. I like how the panties give me tummy control, as in a shaping girdle; the bustier pattern conforms nicely also.
70’s ethnic printed cotton of medium weight and slight crosswise stretch, brown knit lining for front panel, pink stretch lace trim, zipper for left side opening, hook and eye tape for bustier
