Sew Lingerie Book Review

Thursday, December 7, 2023

 Hi Everyone, 

How are you? I hope you're all well. It's been a while. I'm back on the blog to share with you something new and fun from the sewing world. A new book that you might want to get your mitts on. The iconic Maddie Kulig from Madalynne Intimates has released an incredible book for those of you who have always wanted to learn how to make lingerie. Let's have a look...

The book itself is well laid out, clear and modern in its style. It includes so much information, from different fabric types and where to use them, how to work out stretch composition, and even technical terms for different parts of a bra. It's honestly incredibly informative. I, myself, am not an expert in making lingerie, the only items I've ever made are jersey knickers (which I love making). Slippery silks and laces on such tiny pieces has always been a little scary to me, but already the tips in this book have been so useful and I already want to have a go at a few things. I just need to find the time haha. 

In the back of the book are some incredible patterns to have a go at. There's patterns for knickers, bralettes, non-wired and wired bras, swimwear and bodysuits. Each one has a QR code to the downloadable and printable pattern pieces - genius! The patterns themselves are stylish, fun and size inclusive. There's a pattern for everyone and every level of sewing. There's even tips for adaptations if you are breastfeeding or had a mastectomy.

I'm so excited to find some time to give one of the patterns a go. I'm releasing a little video on my YouTube Channel this weekend which I'd love for you to check out. A classic chatty one if you like those haha. 

Maddie has also very kindly given me one digital copy of the book to giveaway. Head to my Instagram page to enter. Good luck!

Happy Handmade.
