Sewing your underwear or swimsuit

Jul 13, 2016 12:00:00 AM

Many of us look for the perfect swimsuit for this summer... And if we would go into sewing a unique and original one?

We noticed the success of our swimsuit clasps and hooks, adjustment buckles and bra rings.

All this little equipment needed to swimsuit and bra sewing seems difficult to find in France. So, we are headed to look for providers to expand our range and to summarize for you the useful material.


Basic equipment for sewing lingerie (any type):

- Stretch thread

- Jersey needles

Swimsuit

For a swimming suit, you will have to find the mat, or shiny, or patterned super stretch Lycra fabric. From our side, we have not yet found the perfect quality to offer you ...

For hems, we add an invisible and sea water resistant, very flat elastic, I appointed the framilon !

To fasten your swimsuit, we released a multitude of metal or plastic back clasps .

You could also sew  swimsuit pads to bring more structure, we have some flesh colored or white.

Underwear

To sew your underwear (bra and panties, tanga, boxer...) you need some very soft jersey fabric containing a small amount of elasthan. We advise you to take organic cotton knitted fabric which will be very soft to wear.

For straps, you will have to sew yourself from the same fabric and elastic, or buy ready-made. We can provide by the meter transparent elastic straps, double sided, white and pastel colors:


Good news, to adjust your straps and attach them properly to the bra, we offer a wide choice of colors and materials:

- the adjustment buckles

- the straps hooks

- the straps rings

If you want to sew a bra with underwiring, we also have the sizes choice of  straps rings and also of  armature protectors .

To fasten your bra on the back you can choose between:

- the by the meter  hooks strip flesh coloured, white or black,

- the white hooks sold by two with elastic

You can also find our  bra extenders over there.

Well now you have the basis for your underwear, but if we talk about ornament, you can add a wide, thin elastic lace or then border with a mat tape, satin or chiffon as bias (but very elastic).

- the wide  lycra elastic laces : blue, pink or green sequned, gray or white.

- the  thin elastic laces , with picots or scalloped.

- the  matt, satin or chiffon pre folded strips .

Also find over there our white or ecru linen bows.


Little more to keep your underwear or swimsuit strapless (also useful for strapless dresses) the by the meter silicone tape !
