I felt my way through some silk tulle jersey and this is the result.
Often, lingerie is all about the bows and ribbons and cutaways and colours. I wanted a humble, simple piece.
No pattern. The fabric led me. I got a little help on the shape and fitting of the cups from Lekala 5248. One piece folded makes the body and skirt (folded in half at hem, the two ends meet under the bust) with a single back seam. No hem line (see 3rd pic). Self fabric straps (doubled over, twice). A dash of hand stitiching for invisible and durable finish.
In the last pic you can see the fine tulle (and is doubled over in that shot).
