Beige Is The New Black

It seems that beige is everywhere I look these days - teamed with colours I would not have thought to put with it. I've seen it with lavender, coral and black and they all look amazing! Even an all beige bra that Orange Lingerie posted a picture of took my fancy. And I used to totally hate beige!

To that end, and a few customer requests, beige is now in stock in powernet, duoplex, stretch mesh, 12mm strapping and under bust elastics, hook/eye and decorative bow. Also the cut & sew foam and sheer cup lining. And I've just added this cute crochet trim picot elastic - very fancy!

And check out that gorgeous lace at the top of the post - they are 3 new laces I've added - all rigid lace which the Marlborough bra from Orange Lingerie calls for. I posted some delicious images of combinations on instagram for those followers - if you don't follow already and would like to keep updated - ellejoans user name. It is a super quick way of getting photos immediately to interested lingerie sewers before I get the time to update the shop.

The top photo is Sage & Purple at 9 inches wide, bottom left at 9 inches wide is Black, Beige & Peach (beige again!!) and the bottom right is Raisin, Lilac & Rose at 7 inches wide. So many combinations could work with this laces, either tone on tone, or contrasting, picking out one of the colours to work with. 

I am happy to make up kits for specific bra patterns if you choose a favourite lace or fabric to start from. Just email an enquiry and I'll get right onto it.

Also what has been bugging me is my shop page - it has been a bit random and all over the place as I add new items. I've spent a lot of time sorting that out and it makes me feel so much better and more organised - instead of just one page, I have it now split into sections for more easier browsing. 

Take a look at the new pages - if there is anything you specifically would like to see that I don't yet stock, items or colours, please email or comment and let me know.

Happy Lingerie Sewing

Giveaway Winner + Glue Sticks

Glue sticks have arrived - and added to shop page. These are great for temporarily holding in place those tricky bits on bras, such as the hook and eye, without needing pins before sewing.
I've also used to temporarily baste the lining to the cradle - works a treat!

They are $6.75 each

And now to the giveaway . . .
