Not content with giving my friend one matching set of lingerie I thought I’d add another not quite a set to her parcel.
After the success of sewing the Delphine thong I decided to try another one, this time in a soft stretch lace and without the additional back coverage.
The lace from Pitt Trading is so lovely to work with but was so soft that the very end of the plate on my sewing machine was catching ever so slightly as it went though.
A quick fix was to use some wide washi tape to cover the plate and hey presto! Snag free sewing.
I really I thought the thong would pair perfectly with a plain black satin bra but as I was running out of time to get it finished in I cheated a little. In my teaching bag I often have samples of pieces that are not quite finished so I can show students diffferent steps along the way. A bit of a rummage through the bag and I found this black lace triangle that only needed a little bit of finishing off.
Together they make a nice not quite matching set.
Pattern: Delphine thong by Ohhh Lulu, my own pattern for the triangle bra
Fabric: Laces from Pitt Trading, elastics and trims from my stash
