For the Extreme sewing make-over contest by the french sewing community Thread&Nedles, I transformed an old djellaba and a jersey skirt into a bra and panties.

This was my first bra, so it’s not perfect, but I love it. It’s really confortable and it fits perfectly, I tell you: I’m never gonna buy bras again! The panties pattern is very nice too: very “vintage” (my boyfriend would say “grand-ma”), perfect under all my Bella pants.

I used a kit and patterns from Make bra’s website: Balconette bra pattern #DL01 size 85C, Panties pattern #DL21 size L.

I . LOVE . IT!

A lot more in french this way
