Belated Valentines' Set

I sewed a little risque/tacky/cute lingerie set for Valentines’!

For me, I chose the Bikini #108B pattern from the 06/2011 issue of Burda mag. The whole set came together in one evening, which is pretty quick by my standards!

The bottoms were exactly what I wanted – tiny and bloomer/court-jester-like, and so cuuute! The bra top was a different story. Either the fit is terrible, or my anatomy is completely weird. I cut my usual size 36 but the cups came out spaced so terribly far apart that I had trouble keeping the straps from falling off my shoulders. And I do NOT have narrow shoulders! Needless to say my boobs came peeping out every few minutes, which is not what I want in a bikini. Maybe it’s the slipperiness of the material doing it? Sadly I will not be making this in cotton – my dainty boobs always require padded covers.

For him, I traced off the boxers from an existing pair, and since boxers are pretty forgiving anyway these fitted pretty well.

More details on the project (and Mr Tropical’s response to it!) on my blog.

Material Notes

    You did not get the idea of a bikini : stay still on the beach, making nice poses….. do not make effort wearing it!!! no swimming madam, just reading and sleeping….. :)
