Hello, want to sew bras? (And other undergarments?)

Hi Sewcialists! I’ve fallen horribly behind on organising things over here on the Sewcialist blog, but nothing is more boring than reading excuses, so I’ll stop there.

How would you feel about an “Underneath It All” sewing theme for July? Bras, knickers, slips, even corsets or pyjamas!  No strict rules or particular sewalong, just a friendly push to try something new and/or refresh your lingerie drawer.

If you’d be interesting in writing a guest post, let me know in the comments! Could be:

  • a pattern review
  • a tutorial
  • a resource round-up
  • where to buy materials online
  • inspiration post
  • or whatever you fancy!

Does that sound fun?

  1. Sounds wonderful!
    The only thing standing between me and a drawer full of me-made lingerie is information. I don’t know which pattern to buy, where to get all the doodahs, how to make it work the first time, etc etc.
    Can’t wait for July 🙂

    1. Lol – that’s all, eh? We’ll see what we can do! I’m in the same boat – I always plan to order some kits, but then I worry about the cost! I think I’ll start simple with a some Watson bras. How about you?

  2. This is great. I’ve been wanting to participate in a challenge like this. I’ve had some great ideas brewing in the back of my mind on the for a while and not quit had the drive to dive into them yet. So excited for this one!

  3. I think this is a great idea and would love to take part – I’d be happy to write a post too – PJs were one of the first things I ever made, and I have plans in mind to try out a couple of new ideas/patterns 🙂

  4. Hey, I might be able to do that! At least some pajamas. We’ll see if baby lets me feel up to it–here’s hoping, because none of my warm-weather ones fit!

    1. That’d be great! You’ve got editor access already, right? If it’s possible to draft the post by the end of June, that would help me see what posts we’ve got and spread them out over the month of July! 🙂 Thanks Charlotte!

  5. Hey Gillian,

    I might be biting off more than I can chew here, but I’d love to write up a project tutorial for a lace robe of sorts. The idea’s been cooking in my head for some time and this could be the push I need. I think I finally know which direction I want to head in.
