The bra pattern is Merckwaerdigh PBH30, the pattern is for push-up underwired bra, bustier, bodysuit, and thong bodysuit. I made size 30C.
The fabric was 4 m of red stretch lace and I wanted to use it for the whole set without using lycra fabric at all. Luckily I found this Lace Tanga Panties pattern at Burdastyle. It is a PDF pattern, and it’s free!
The lace was only 13.5 cm wide (5.3 inches), I just made the top lower than what the pattern specified. This panties style was actually not my usual style, and I was a bit worried that they were not comfortable. I made only one at first and tried them on, and they were surprisingly quite comfy! Just a little bit too big but it was easy to fix by stitching deeper on the center front and center back. I made size XS.
