Lace from my stash giveaway + vouchers

Lace giveaway

As more and more people move to using mobile devices to browse the site and download files, I’m gradually trying to go back through some of my earlier patterns and give them an update.  Recently, I just changed the Cheeky Panties pattern.  It was originally hand drawn and in a ZIP file but now its digital and available as a PDF so it can be downloaded and printed more easily.

Sew your own lace undies - So Sew Easy

UPDATE - Oct 2014.  The pattern has now been updated from hand-drawn to digital and is available with the pattern and instructions as a single PDF file to make downloading and printing easy, especially from mobile devices.  Please refer to the downloaded instructions for how to assemble the new digital pattern.

I printed out the new pattern to test and check it and thought, hmm, about time I updated my underwear drawer.  That got me going back through my stash to make some more.  I can’t believe quite how much of the stretch lace I had.  Originally when I developed the pattern I was intending to sew some for sale in my Etsy shop but then one project led to another and another and I just kept on making new things.

Anyway, its more fun to sew for yourself than to sew for someone else – or at least it is for me.  So I have a LOT of stretch lace I bought to make up these undies and then never got around to it.  My excess is your gain, because to celebrate the update of this pattern, I’m having a stash clear-out and will send the 2 lucky giveaway winners a big bundle of stretch lace suitable for making up this pattern – or anything else you want to make with it.

Lace bundles

It’s all clean, been unopened and stored away in plastic bags in a big box in my cupboard.  So just print the pattern, cut the lace and sew and you can have new underwear in about 15 minutes I think!  And SO much cheaper than you can buy in the shops.

I’m also delighted that joining me in the giveaway is my favorite lace supplier – Deb’s Lace and Trims.  She has simply the very best range and the very best prices on:

    I have followed your amazing story and growth for a while! You have been a positive influence on me as a role model and I am forever grateful! I too move on to new things quickly and enjoy sewing. This month I am making a real effort to actually sew for myself!!! I have had your VS Pantie pattern since you first made it public and even visited some of the recommended shops for buying lace. But I wasn’t sewing for me then! I am making a tremendous effort to change that AND become satisfied with what I do sew! It should be fun and not a drag! So, in honor to a lovely woman, A.K.A. YOU, I am going to make those panties By the end of this year!!! I have a complex shirt I am currently working on, but YOUR project is NEXT! I will send pic, and pin them to prove I did it! Thanks for all your hard work and beautiful patterns you share and design to inspire!!!

    Thanks for the many great patterns you design. The lace is gorgeous I enrolled in the bra making on craftsy a couple of weeks ago but have not made anything yet It would be great to be able to make matching undies. Just because I am 73 does not mean I can’t have nice eundies. Good luck to all.

I sew for women and children at my local women’s shelter and new underwear is something that is always needed and I would love to make these pretty ones for them as well. Thanks for the chance to win some lace. Oh – I live on Vancouver Island outside Victoria in British Columbia Canada.
