Drum Roll, Please!

…okay, maybe don’t start your drum rolls quite yet; the winner of the giveaway will be announced, but not till the end of this post – I hope the suspense doesn’t finish anyone off by then!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that lingerie-making is an excellent use for remnants, offcuts and scraps of all kinds. But this in itself inspires another question; if one makes underwear from other projects’ remains, what does one do with those from lingerie projects? Well, my friends, it seems I’ve discovered the answer: make MORE lingerie! Remember that coral lace I made my last Marlborough and Alice tap pants set from? Here it is, back with a vengeance and lovelier than ever! This time, a pair of Grace panties and a matching garter belt:

Good Things Come in Small Packages

The giveaway is now closed! Thank you to everyone who participated, the winner will be announced in a few days! 🙂

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not a huge fan of suspense (unless it’s in a Hitchcock movie, in which case, bring it on). So I’m glad that I can finally announce the “little something” I’ve been hinting at for the last couple of weeks! As a thank you for all the support, encouragement and welcome I have received so far, I’m doing a little giveaway! I initially planned this to celebrate reaching 100 followers, but things got away from me a bit, so we’re now going to celebrate the 150 followers milestone instead! 😀

Given that lingerie-making is something close to my heart, I decided that I’d put together some bra-making supplies to give away! One of the most common questions I see relating to the topic is: where do I find supplies? So here I’ll list the components of the kit I’ve put together and where they came from…and one lucky person will get these supplies sent to them!
