Canada Cups or Bottoms Up!



This is my last post for the Cross You Heart Relay. Now that you've seen all the bras and corsets its time to get the matching pantie!  You'll also find my Booty Buddy, Michelle and her take on the "Panties, Construction and Fit" class right here!



*Disclaimer: Just so you know, I was given the class for free for the purpose of the tour, but all opinions are my own! I'm also an affiliate, meaning that if you should click on one of the links that take you to Craftsy (like on my sidebar or in this blog post) and make a purchase through that link, I make a small commission at no extra cost to you.
Craftsy equips you wit the tangilble skills, quality materials, access to inspiring and like-minded crafters, and most importantly, the confidence to add your own creative twist to all that you create. Craftsy is committed to helping you express your unique passion, talent, and creativity.


I watched the classes, "Panties Construction and Fit*"with Beverly, our Fairy Bra Mother,  I've done the math and drafted a pattern. I've made panties...and plenty of them!

This class took me from taking my own measurements properly, to drafting my basic master pattern in only the first 2 lessons.



Beverly really knows her stuff when talking about fabrics and notions, and mentions common mistakes some will make when drafting so that we don't make the same mistakes. In other lessons she explains how to modify to get different cuts and styles. 

I was easily able to alter my pattern so that the side seams would be more like front side seams. I find it makes for a very sexy and high-end look. 


After this class I feel very confident about the bra making classes that I recently purchased (all due to seeing everyone's project on this tour).  Just about everything I've learned as far as techniques and skills will be useful for those classes too.

So now that this Craftsy class finally got me out of my maternity undies (very true story, and thank you so much!) I'm so pleased that they are extending a savings out to you on this class. You can save 50% on "Panties, Construction and Fit" class by using my affiliate link (Click!

  8. Keep making your own! While maternity undies can be comfy, they're no where near that cute. :)
