A lingerie set with plaid lycra and black stretch lace. The pattern is Merckwaerdigh MIX30. I started with size 30D and shortened the band slightly to make it size 28E.
This is the only alteration I did on this pattern. I found out that with Merckwaerdigh patterns, I don’t have to narrow the bridge like in Pin-up Girls pattern.
I stitched transparent elastic along the edge of the upper cup using 3 step zigzag stitches. Initially I tried to use narrow cup elastic but the sewing machine kept ‘eating’ them. Then the upper cup was sandwiched between the lower cup and the cup lining so the seams are enclosed inside. The bridge is also lined with non-stretch lining.
