And now for my favourite part – the amazing lingerie and pjs that you sewed up this month!
This AH-MAZING corset is a WIP from Mother of Reinvention!
Maddy isn’t shy with colour, and she makes the cutest things!
Blam! I told you Maddy isn’t shy with colour!
Carolyn made some panties that look as good as RTW – but with a fun floral gusset!
Chrichrimano made a lovely robe for her mom.
Meg made adorable floral Fiji pyjamas as a gift. Lucky friend!
I took a bra-sewing class, and made my first two bras! Still haven’t started on #3 though…
Duckndam chose beautiful summery colours for her bra and panty set. What a shame the bra didn’t quite fit right!
She did manage some comfy looking underwear though!
Caroline made this white satin Victorian underbust corset. So pretty!
Elizabeth made (and blogged a tutorial) for this beautiful lace robe.
I am so in love with the pajama party that Noelle and her mom sewed. Four pairs EACH! Go look at the all! The family that sews together, stays together, ammiright?
Finally, Andie made a gorgeous green and white bra inspired by Sailor Mercury!
Thanks again to everyone who posted, sewed, or just read along. I hope you enjoyed this month’s Lingerie theme! I think we might do our next theme month in October – I’m thinking one challenge a season?
In the comments, I’d love to hear what theme you think we should try next, and what you learned this month about lingerie!
[…] totally missed the lingerie month on sewcialists, whoops. However, I was inspired by Carolyn, and that I routinely grab underwear made by me instead […]
Hi Gillian, Thanks for including my corset in your round-up. I am really touched by your generous comment and glad that you like it. I have really enjoyed this month’s theme and found all the blog posts incredibly useful. People have made such gorgeous lingerie and all the bras! I think that they look so hard to master and am in awe of all your skills. Xx
Thank YOU for being part of the community! I really enjoyed this month’s theme too, and thought all the guest-posters did a wonderful job!!!!

[…] GENERAL. Most of our themes aim to appeal to a broad Sewcialist audience and are open to interpretation. Occasionally, we’ll shake things up with a niche theme like costuming or lingerie. […]
