HOORAY! A week ago, my oldest sister got married! While I did have a grasp/responsibility on many of the weekend's details, the bachelorette party had totally slipped my mind until just about a week before.
I went right away to look at the usual places one goes to shop for lingerie, but the styles and prices did not impress.
Deflated after the unsuccessful mall trip, I thought, you know what is impressive? Ohhh Lulu lingerie!
I just wished I had thought about this with enough time to place an order, but thankfully Sarah has quite a repertoire of downloadable patterns in her shop!
With a little lingerie pattern help, this nightie went together super quickly and beautifully.
I used the Ohhh Lulu Bambi Soft Bra pattern on top and cut a quick skirt, using the band and hip measurements and a hip curve.
Lastly, I added grosgrain straps and a (pretty adorable) nightie was born!
For this one, I used leftover soy/organic cotton/spandex and organic cotton pointelle from Texture.
I discovered that the Bambi pattern is great for using up small bits of fabric that would otherwise go unused, making the Texture/Bambi union just perfect, as that's what Texture does on a daily basis! I'm looking forward to trying this patten in all sorts of scrap fabrics.
Texture is still running a 20% off promotion on all fabrics through today (June 30, 2013), so be sure to enter the coupon code fabric20 if you're interested in getting some of this eco-friendly softness for yourself!
