This looks so great....

I'm joining in with this sew along

I have followed a few loose threads and her love for vintage underwear, so I'm thrilled there is a sew along. I think joining in will give me many tips and guidance along the way that even I could have perfect smalls!!


  1. Charlotte, we're so glad you're joining us! Thanks for mentioning this on your blog. The more the merrier!
    THe notions you mentioned on the blog are listed int he first post (with the giveaway) but I'll put them here for you to make it easy:
    I've got about 2 1/2 yards of fabric for both corset and bra.
    4 garter clips, (optional) vintage or otherwise. I recommend removable ones if you can find them.
    eyelet and eyelet punch or 1/2 yard hook and eye tape
    corset boning (optional)
    3 yards of matching bias binding or ribbon for edges
    2 yards ribbon or cord for corset lacing (eyelet version only)
    1/2 yard ribbon or plush elastic for attaching garter clips
    3 bottles of wine

  2. Thanks Ana, I'll be shopping asap. I think I may need those bottles of wine.

  3. This looks like it would be a lot of fun! Plus the sew-a-long button is gorgeous! Enjoy!
