Matching Panties for A Modern Floral Shelley and The Bra-A-Week Challenge

This week I have a couple of pair of panties I made to co-ordinate with my Modern Floral Shelley.

I love cotton, and this Indigo cotton spandex is from Bra-Makers Supply. The lace is from the Merckwaerdigh kit I used for the bra, and the elastics are from Frog Feathers on Etsy.

2 panties

On the first pair I made I used a bit of the lace I used from the bra and then some Ivory lace elastics – Ivory also being a color also in the Lycra. I’d wondered if maybe there was too much lace, but then decided there can never be too much lace. I love them. They’re so comfortable.

Too much lace

The second pair, which is my favorite style to make, uses the same lace from the kit for the whole front panel. On this pair I used Navy lace elastics.

Fav style of panties

Both pairs of panties are from my TNT panty pattern – Kwik Sew 2286, which I have fun with by changing the lines or style, but using the pattern as a base or starting point.

I also picked up a couple of pair of panties in some coordinating colors, not so much because I wanted or needed the panties, but to clone them for patterns. I really like the top pair – how the back part of the panty wraps right around the front in a little V across the hip, and the lace elastic in the design. Very pretty. The bottom pair is simply a high cut style, but still fun.


Now our Bra-A-Week Challenge. We’re on week 26 of the Challenge! It is so very inspiring to see everyone’s submissions.

This week we have a beautiful bikini from Diana.


That is so lovely. Diana wrote about this on her blog If you don’t read Dutch, it helps to open it in Google Translate. You can read it that way in your own language. Check it out here for English.

This is so colorful and fun. It’s really lovely, Diana.

Our next submission comes from Maddy.


Maddy made the Marlborough bra. This is her second time making the Marlborough; she made a few modification to the pattern and got an almost perfect fit. That perfect fit (or almost perfect) feels so good!

Maddy also mad a matching pair of Ohhh Lulu Grace panties.


This was Maddy’s first time making the Grace panties, and she really loves the style and fit! That is so good to know because the Grace panties are on my to-buy list. Thanks for recommending them, Maddy!

You can read all about Maddy’s Marlborough and Grace panties, with more pictures and details about the alterations on her blog:
Our next submission comes from Monserratt. Monserratt is a Pin-Up Girl like me, and made her bra from the Classic pattern.

I love these colors! So gorgeous! You really need to see take a look at Monserratt’s blog: – she has a lot of information on there as to what she’s done in the way of alterations, but also a lot of photos. You can see her lovely makes, and her great photos!

 David’s bra features black lace across the front overlaid with the straps. This is something like a short corset, bandeau, sport bra and strappy.

 But there are two different laces used here. You can see the second lace on the back.

 Isn’t that stunning? Just gorgeous. David is a freelance lingerie designer, his label is: Bonnet Bleu
Our last submission is from Erin!
Erin made this is a bikini for her sister’s birthday.
 Erin’s sister picked out this fabric and wanted a cute itsy-bitsy bikini, but with a little more structure (underwires & foam). It’s a vertical seam cup, low cut with short wires. (Erin thinks she’s the equivalent of a 34C although she drafted this pattern off her measurements).
 The details are a cute tie in the front and on the sides of the bottoms and nice double stitching on the outer fabric for the cups, gold rings and G-hooks. Erin said it was lots of fun to make – and hopes it fits her sister perfectly!!
What a nice birthday gift! You can read more on Erin’s blog:
I’m loving summer hosting the challenge – it is so exciting and fun to see all the makes coming in!
Happy creating!

  1. Great Submissions this week! I can’t get enough of that green neon bra from Maddy- Stunning! Everyone is making such beautiful things!! 🙂

    1. I agree! All the submissions are great! It’s such fun seeing them come in and getting that first look. 🙂 Thanks for starting this, Erin.

  2. Nice panties! And they look really comfy! I almost never sew coordinating undies, I use up all my energy sewing the bra!
    And the submissions this week are wonderful! I love the print of Diana’s bikini, and of course the colour of Maddy’s set! I bet that it never gets lost on the lingerie drawer. 😉 Monserratt has made a colorful lovely bra, and Erin has amazed me one more time with her bikini! The little bow detail is so cute!!

    1. Thank you! The submissions this week are so lovely. There are incredibly talented sewists out there! You could always make your panties a separate project and not do them at the same time. That’s what I’m doing. It’s very fun to pull matching sets out in the morning. 🙂

  3. I think everyone knows I love a matching set…so I am very on board with your makes this week Michelle! I love Erin’s bikini for her sister as well, all the submissions this week are great 🙂

    1. I’m with you on that, Maddy! It’s so fun to pull out matching sets to wear everyday. Yes, everyone’s submissions are really great too! Such talent.

    1. It’s wonderfully fun to see all the submissions coming in – they’re all great and so unique. It was neat how both you and Erin made Bikinis, and they’re both so lovely.
