Ladies, I present the Ooh la la Pin-Up Sew-Along:
I've been talking for a while with a fellow blogger about doing a joint sew-along and now it's finally happening! The lovely and talented Sarah from Ohh Lulu is even more interested in lingerie than I am, if that's possible. And she's good at it too, enough to open a lovely shop of her own on etsy.
Sarah and I have decided to start with the French Pin-Up Corset Garter Belt pattern that I just recently finished.
If all goes according to plan, we'll also follow up with the French Pin-Up Bra Corselet.
And of course I would never do a Sew-Along without a coupon code! Take 15% off using the code "OOHLALA". Make sure that you click on the "Apply shop coupon code" link to add the code, otherwise etsy will charge you the full amount.
Sarah and I are working as we speak on our corset garter belts and we'll start posting soon, but not before you have a chance to gather some of the things you might need. I'll be working with a vintage peach satin for my corset and bra, and so far here's what you might need depending on what version you make:
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
Naturally, there's also a giveaway attached! One of you will be chosen at random to win BOTH of these patterns!
