Thank you all so much for the enthusiastic response to our new Lansdowne bra sewing pattern! There are so many beautiful bras that you can make with this new style and I wanted to share some of my favorite looks that you can create using this pattern.
STYLE 1: FLORAL CUPS WITH MATCHING LACE

This look is so fresh and fun! Match your favorite boldly patterned fabric with a solid colored lace which echoes at least one of the colors of the fabric (in this case white, but there are many possibilities). Florals are a classic, but I can also see this with tropical and animal prints. You can also try matching the power net of the band with the lace color for a visually harmonious look.
STYLE 2: BRIGHT COLORED TONE-ON-TONE LACE

I love a bright and sunny bra, and this style will work with your favorite color as well. Simply use a lace that is exactly or just slightly off the color of your base fabric. Overlapping the two will create depth to the color thanks to the texture of the lace, and even more so if your base fabric is just slightly darker. For a more daring look, you can even try a neon colored lace over a brightly colored fabric of the same tone.
STYLE 3: POWDERED COLOR LACE OVER PALE FABRIC

This time the base fabric has a lighter color than the lace, which highlights the lace pattern itself. Here the delicate floral lace motif seems to be delicately climbing over the fabric. Any pastel color will work as a base, as long as it is very light, and this is a great opportunity to use a subtly multicolored lace on top.
STYLE 4: ART DECO BLACK & GOLD WITH SATIN UPPER CUP

Geometric patterns can also make for sexy bras! Think 1920s style, with refined dark prints highlighted with a touch of warm gold or copper. I like how making a simple upper cup in a solid dark satin makes the print of the lower cup stand out – you could even say that the print gives the illusion of being lace! The very clean lines make for a coherent and slick Art Deco inspired bra.
Of course we also have some beautiful looks we made using the bra making kits that we created with Tailor Made shop! Today is the last day to pre-order your favorites!
As always, I cannot wait to see what each of you will make with the new Lansdowne bra pattern! Do not forget to tag #orangelingerie on social media if you would like to share your version.
