London, United K...
I’d been on a big lingerie sewing kick in January using up my extensive stash of lingerie laces and elastics, and the first up here is a bra and thong set using some gorgeous (but flimsy) lace I’d bought from eLingeria.de a while back.
The bra is Elan 530 with modifications to the bridge and a lot of extensions to the back (pretty much all the reviewers comment on how short the back of this is compared to other bras!), and the thong is my own creation, with decollete elastic around the waist edge to stabilise the flimsy elastic.
