Full band bra with underwires and high-waisted bloomer set made with lycra fabric with pretty flowers pattern. The pattern reminds me of spring!
The bra pattern is my usual one, Pin-up Girls Classic Bra #1230, size 30C, a classic full band bra that can be made with or without underwires. I made mine with underwires.
The panties are high-waisted, made with PDF pattern, The Betty High Waist Panties from Ohhh Lulu. The pattern is for classic, princess-seam high waist knickers, it is designed for knits, but can accommodate stretch-wovens, or loose-weaves cut on the bias.
I used serger to sew princess seams on the panties, then finished the elastic with sewing machine. The thing about high-waist panties is they look rather strange on hanger, maybe not as cute as the ordinary cheeky panties. But they are actually very flattering on the body. Worn together with the bra, they look like a retro swimwear set!
