Divergent Interests: Intimates


Thanks in part to Beyonce’s very sexy new videos and Ohh Lulu’s new pattern shop, I’ve had lingerie on the brain. This board is filled with many things too complex and delicate for my slapdash sewing style, but it’s something to build towards while it’s too cold and wet to make and wear new dresses.

I’ve, so far, resisted buying supplies and patterns. Though I have been looking. Orange Lingerie has a great list of NYC resources that is very tempting. And the price is so right on the Ohh Lulu patterns.

Little pretty things are so tempting!

  1. i’ve gotta see these videos.

    NOW LISTEN. if you jump on the lingerie ship too, you will leave me all alone!!!! have you seen amy (cloth habit’s) recent wrap up post? that teal bra made me cry.

  2. I;m going to properly do the Sew Sexy Sew Along soonish…I’m thinking February? This sounds like it would be perfect! I asked Clio to co-host, but we could add a third….AND do a proper fabric shopping day for it!

  3. It has been on my list for a while to make some pretty underthings but the list of supplies always deters me from actually taking the plunge. I have made many panties but the bra thing- It’s not like I can run down to the corner fabric store and find underwire and “channeling” and all the other items on the supply list… Sigh…

    • That’s why I was so glad to see the list at Orange Lingerie. I have no clue what to buy and it’s great that I’ll be able to see and touch the things in person!

      • Yeah… I would like to touch too. I way prefer being able to feel the weight, drape, etc of a fabric in person vs. online shopping (which I do participate in but there is nothing like an actual shopping trip!) Have fun! I am jealous! I wonder if there is a similar place in LA? I will have to do some research!
