This week I have a couple of pair of panties to match the Ivory and Pink Sewy Rebecca bra I made. I mentioned a few posts ago how I was going to use some Cotton Spandex Doubleknit from Bra-Makers Supply. The color wasn’t an exact match though. It’s close, but not exact.
Here’s the bra and panties together.
Here you can you see the cotton looks quite a bit deeper in color than the Duoplex. However, I’m still very happy with this set.
The panties are from my TNT pattern – Kwik Sew 2286. I prefer the KS 2286 because it so closely resembles my very favorite RTW panties from La Vie En Rose. They had the lace at the legs and waistband as well, and I loved that.
I used KS 2286 without any alterations this time, and then used the two remaining scraps of lace I had left over from making my bra, and added those to the panties. There was so little lace left too. I’m always sad when a much-loved lace is gone.
On this pair, I sewed the pink and ivory lace to the stretch lace I used on the waistband and then sewed it to the panty as one piece. I cut away the cotton from behind the lace as well, to make a ‘window’ of the lace.
Here are the two together. I do think the lace pulls them together pretty well.
I was looking at BMS, and they have a Modal knit in Ivory. I may try the next time I want to makes something in ivory as they say it has good stretch and breathability. You can see it here.
For the second pair of panties I made, I had even less lace than this first pair. It was time to get creative with what I could do with it.
Here I was just laying the lace out in different patterns to see what would look nice and what I preferred.
And here is my second pair of panties to match my Pink and Ivory Rebecca.
I like these as much as the first pair. Again, I cut away the cotton from behind the lace to make a window. You can see the window in the picture below.
There, two pretty and much-loved cotton panties to match my new bra.
I’m also happy to say, Bra-Makers Supply has this lace in stock again. Yay! I thought I’d seen the last of it. That made my day as I loved this lace. It really looks so pretty with ivory and with pink. They don’t call it Pink and Ivory, if you’re looking for it. They call it Bright and Light Pink. You can find it here.
