Lovers of lace and delicate fabrics, have you tried making lingerie yet? Is it your dream to wear me-made clothes from head to toe? These patterns are for you! Making lingerie is so much fun because you can make whatever feels most like yourself, and you can create the perfect fit. You also get to choose colours and what you do or don’t want to cover up, it’s entirely up to you! Plus, it’s a fantastic way to use up your scraps of fabric.
