Colour Inspiration - June & July - Musicality

Musicality' the soft and moody colour scheme for this month has inspired a soft and flowing underwire bra kit.    The two main fabrics are a dusky pink stretch satin and a white and black, daintily embroidered tulle. Punctuated with a variety of cinnamon and black elastics plus a generously wide black satin ribbon for decoration.   I can see this kit made up into a Labellum bra, pattern by LilypaDesigns or the new Margareta by B,Wear. This kit is available in either 12mm and 19mm elastics.  I know what I’m making. How about you? You can get your kit now in the Kit...

Colour Inspiration - April & May - Raindrops on Roses

We're all romance and sophistication with the latest limited edition kit 'Raindrops on Roses' based on April/May's colour theme of pinks, creams and subtle greens. There are two main fabrics in this one! A rose printed bra tulle in creams and pinks also punctuated with a repeat pattern of teardrops.  Then there is the gorgeously soft organic bamboo knit in a nostalgic, sage green. Elastics pick up on the pops of fuchsia and ivory.       I can see this kit made up into a Shelley by Pin Up Girls accompanied by some bamboo briefs, maybe the Ultimate Burlesque Panties by Ohhh...

Colour Inspiration - February & March - Metallic Goodness!

The kit for February/March is a gorgeous selection of metallic goodies! The 'precious metals' of this month's colour scheme along with February's Valentines Day (or Galentines Day) inspired me to create an indulgent kit that you can treat yourself with.     The main fabric is black and golden beige ombre, embroidered tulle with gold and silver thread. Simply stunning!! I've paired it with an array of metallic elastics including a narrow, golden peach elastic perfect for strappy detailing.  Speaking of strappy details, this kit comes with an assortment of rings and sliders, including a heart slider so you can...
