Blue Cami and Granny

HELLO, I AM OVERJOYED TO HAVE FINALLY MADE SOMETHING FOR MY BUST AFTER GOING MORE THAN TWO WEEKS WITHOUT A BRA. My commitment to this project is real, and as we all know, bras wear out. I didn’t buy a new one, though, because: PROMISES. So when my last remaining bra stretched out beyond any practical use, I just went without. Like a pilgrim. With floppy tits.

But look! I made something! And not at all what I thought I was going to make. Turns out, I quite like the look of a flat and saggy bust line. And so … I made a semi-supportive bra camisole. It looks GREAT under concert t-shirts.

I don’t recommend this.

I’ve always worn an underwire, thinking bralette camis were a) kind of stupid, and b) not at all useful, but if they’re custom made for your body, they’re actually completely the opposite and incredibly comfortable. SURPRISE.

Added bonus: I already made a couple pairs of granny panties in this baby blue power stretch, so now I have a little faux bodysuit situation. Ask all of my friends – my entire life is in pursuit of the perfect granny panty bodysuit.

Will obviously be making one, now that I have all of the elements sorted.

First, I plan to knock out a few more bras – not with the full-length cami, although, the cinching throughout the waist is very nice. There’s no way I can survive summer with all of that fabric, so I need to make some lightweight options real quick. I have some stretch laces, so I’ll probably make a couple in that to start.

The cups feel really great, and there’s no dreaded line under shirts. Good job, Veronica.

I purchased the straps pre-made. They were intended only for children, apparently. I will most definitely need something sturdier for everyday use. I give these straps … four more hours before they are completely stretched out.

Someone give me a medal for not fucking with my body in Photoshop.

I tried, but it didn’t work. GOODBYE.




COMPLETED: Ten Grannies

HELLO, I’VE REACHED MY GRANNY PANTY GOAL AND FINALLY ACHIEVED SOMETHING IN MY LIFE. I officially no longer have any full coverage underwear in my lingerie drawer that were not cut and sewn myself. MY FULL BOTTOM HAS BEEN WARDROBED.

Some pairs are fancier than others, and I honestly wouldn’t say the laces and frills are exactly perfectly my taste, but I also figure any underwear this gigantic should be treated as pure lunacy and decorated as such.

I don’t even really love all of the colors – I prefer neutrals for this kind of thing – but all of the fabrics FEEL really great, and that’s the most important thing about underwear anyway. I do kind of like the laces on the coral satins. And I REALLY love the elasticity of the lilac and blue undies – they are seriously supportive and slimming and make me feel like I have at least something in my life under control.

As a collection, they look exactly like someone’s suitcase exploded at camp in the original The Parent Trap movie.

The tuxedo pair IS RIDICULOUS.

They’re like the granny panty version of a French maid costume. Only with more coverage.

In younger news … I’ve already sewn five thongs, so I’m halfway to that goal as well. Can’t wait to model those! Just kidding. GOODBYE.
