I made my first lingerie set! All the fabric and notions are bought as a kit from ElingerieA, enough for one bra and two panties. The bra pattern is also bought from Elingeria and it is called Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230, a classic bra with full band that can be made with or without underwires. The instruction booklet is really helpful and perfect for a newbie like me.
I don’t like bra with underwires or padded cups, so I choose to make mine without underwires. According to the instruction booklet, I am size 30B, which is a size that I have never found in the stores.
The finished bra fits wonderfully! Although the cups have no underwires, they have enough support and are very comfortable. The panties are also very comfortable, not to mention that they are beautiful. My husband also agrees with me that they are indeed beautiful :D
The panties pattern was bought from Merckwaerdigh at Etsy. It is called Merckwaerdigh Mix30 with bra, panties, and knickers pattern in several sizes, mine is size S.
