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.




Pink Granny Test Panty

HELLO, THIS MORNING I WOKE UP, SEWED A PAIR OF UNDIES AND TOOK A FEW PHOTOS. This particular pair was just a test run, and I’m thrilled to report that the fit is perfect, the fabric is light and buttery, they are comfy AF, and despite the granny silhouette, there is zero VPL.

No makeup or contacts today, and I didn’t comb my hair or anything, because these are just some undies, get over it.

Now that I know the pattern is just right, I can focus on gathering up colors and trimmings that won’t make me feel like an actual gran.

Now I need to make a full collection to replace the mess I’m currently hating. I’m thinking 10 granny, 10 hipster, 10 thong and a few solid cotton for sad days, and since these stitch together in no time, I’m hoping it doesn’t take me forever to accomplish all of this, my life’s goals. GOODBYE.
