We were invited to dinner last night by some of Mike's friends and of course I didn't have a thing to wear lol. I saw two reviews for McCalls 6571 here and here and wanted to try out this great little pattern so thought it was quick enough for me to make in the couple of hours I had left before we had to leave for the dinner.
As mentioned in my blog yesterday I have been doing some more lingerie sewing and managed to complete two bras by yesterday lunchtime.
Despite the colouring in the photograph, the colour of the first bra is more of the periwinkle blue. This was some lace that I purchased from the little haberdashery shop in Walthamstow and I am really happy with the way it turned out. For this bra I used the lace for the undercup too, whereas other bras I have only used the lace for the upper cup.
The pink and red rose lace was an eBay purchase and the 2nd bra I have made from this pretty lace and will be taken to the flat in London to stay there.
