Once again, we present our amazing and talented customers and their Hop to it Challenge Entries. I must admit,. that the end of the month was getting closer, and there were very few entries! However literally, the last day, and …poof…we had a lot of submissions. So thank you to all this month. now let’s see how you “Hopped to it!” Once again, the descriptions etc. were kindly provided by the makers.
Here is my entry to the April Ultimate Bra-makers Challenge Hop to It: a pair of fittness leggings. Modifying the boyshort bottom of Princess Tankini Swimsuit pattern to leggings is relatively easy, but I wanted to twist on the look, so I used purple and orange colour blocks. The inverse pair of these leggings will not be ready until deadline, I will send you photos of them later.
My entry for the April Bra Makers Challenge is a Wendy top. I used a dark taupe wickable spandex (I believe it’s called Max-Dri) and a shimmery fold over elastic I dyed a light blue. I wanted a touch of color so I used the fold over elastic under the arms and I used a decorative stitch in a matching blue around the front neckline. This was my first time working with bra cups and I was surprised at how easy there were to manipulate and sew. The top fits beautifully and is perfect for yoga.
This is as active as I get. It looks sporty but it’s more for relaxing in garden. It’s my self-draft with a Lucky Lingerie twist. The interior is totally BMS powernet, plush band elastic, strap elastic, hooks and eyes, and rings and sliders. The exterior is a wicking poly spandex from my stash. I made the Lucky Lingerie twist Bralette but it was shockingly small and I struggled with it for far too long. So, I drafted my version based on my Shelley back and a combination of bra and halter front. I could use some help with redrafting a proper straight strap, I know I’ve seen how to do it but can’t remember where.
