More recycling going on, even the elastic lace is from the op shop, lol. I intended to make these two into a swimsuit, so I used non-breathable black stretch knit from the op shop which I had lying around handy, but the lace does give it a boudoir look. With sufficient cross-wise stretch this set is comfy to wear, and they didn’t need the zips I installed, but they look cool all the same lol. I sewed it with plain zig zag and I bound the leg edges using bias from the same fabric. I wanted to give contrast panels a try, and as I only had small remnants of peach lace in my vintage stash, I made them feature overlaid just on the center fronts. Between you and me, I need to finish the inside seams which join up with the lace more neatly, perhaps bind them. Location: Ponsonby

Material Notes

black possibly nylon cross-wise stretch knit fabric, vintage knit lining for inside panel of panties, plastic separating zip/s, c’70’s neon peach floral lace, vintage neon peach stretch lace elastic, black satin ribbon
