Queenie and Tina: A Tribute

Image
So I didn't intend to sew bras based on he movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them... it just happened. I was working on a pink and gold one, no big deal, and once it was done my mind just went, Queenie Goldstein! This is her! So, being fair, and admiring Tina very much in the movie as well, I had to make one based on her too.


Pattern: Simplicity 8228, view B, size 32D


Materials: Pale rose powermesh, peach elastics, skinny elastic, black/copper lace--all from TailorMadeShoppe on Etsy, purchased at different times. Pink elastics-from ArteCrafts on Etsy. I love that color pink. Gold spandex stuff and orange lining--JoAnn's.


I love how feminine the pale pink and gold combination is. I didn't have strapping elastic in a color I liked, so I covered some regular elastic in powermesh. The straps are a little short, but not so much I can't wear it. Like Queenie, this bra is simple and feminine. It sparkles but isn't obnoxious. Other than not really being inspired by Qu…

Happy Blogiversary to Me!

It's official; I've had my blog for a little over a year now! To celebrate, I thought I'd share some of my favorite makes from the past year.

 First up, in May, was my skirt for graduation. I loved the fact that I wore something handmade to my commencement. Also, check out that long hair!
Then my original Inari dress in July, poor baby. I loved it before it shrunk. Also, that was the month of messy buns...
My tropical bikini in August! I've only worn it a few times as I don't go swimming much, but I love it.
My winter skirt in December. I had just needed some glitzy fabric, and this was the one that seemed the most useful. It's cream and with the texture and sparkle I don't wear it much, but it makes me happy.
Then in January, my Simplicity x Madalynne set. It's super supportive and I adore it, although the racerback is a tad bit too visible.
My most joyous mustard cardigan in February! It serves as loungewear most Saturdays for me, paired with legging…

Me Made May, Etc., Busy Busy

Hello everyone! I have been so busy these past few weeks that nothing new has been made! Anyway, I signed up for Me-Made-May. My pledge:

I, Regan, of https://solitudeforsewing.blogspot.com/, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '17. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made item each day for the duration of May 2017. As I sew a lot of my own undergarments, 1 item = 1 full set of undergarments.

There you have it. My pledge.

As a warning, don't hold your breath for new posts for the remainder of the school year other than round ups for May. I really have no time to sew. I might pull a few out of my sleeve, but I just don't have the time. Once school is over, and I'm settled in at my summer research job, I'll have sewing time.

Anyway, catch you all later!
