Satin panties – BurdaStyle 01/2012 #128
This project was out of my skill range, but what the heck lol. I arrived at my destination in my own way, as I couldn’t entirely understand all of the instructions for the bustier, me being a novice. I dove into my vintage remnant stash but I didn’t try to match up the plaid pattern. Symmetry-wise the 2 bust points are slightly unequal. I had to sew folded strips over the top of the bust edges to hide some messy top stitching.
I added a thick elastic band for the back as I didn’t have any white hook and eye tape. So you simply slip it over. It took me under 2 weeks to sew this set, which may be used as lingerie, bed wear, or swimmers. I love how the high waist panties offer tummy control (- it is my problem area!). The top has some wayward lumpiness, but as long as my set isn’t too shoddy? Lol!
