It’s been a long time coming. Maybe too long. Can my excuse be that I’m fashionably late? Yes!
Today, I’m thrilled to be releasing my first lingerie kit, available for preorder, and full video tutorial for the Madalynne x Simplicity 8228 panty. What does the kit include? Where can you watch the tutorial? All the deets are below!
update: kits have sold out with a restock date of mid May. Video tutorial is still available. Sign up and receive 10% off the kit (when back in stock) with the code tutorial10. Read more updates here.
I gave a glimpse of what’s been getting my creative juices and sewing mojo going lately here, and I’m thrilled to show you exactly what I’m using it for today. For me, I think it’s cool to see where a designer gets their inspo. As old man winter makes his departure and the sweet and sweaty dog days of summer roll in, I’m all about blush pink with pops of yellow. The prettiest palette perfect for spring and summer. The inspiration for this exact kit is a bra + panty set by Anthropologie. Surprise, surprise right?
Finally! I probably should have offered kits for my patterns from the get-go. Better late than never? I’m starting with one right now, but fully intend on adding more if the response it good! These kits include everything you need to make the entire pattern. So there’s enough fabric and trimming to make the bralette + panty, not just the bra like some of the other kits available on the web.
Price is the going rate – $25.00- and will ship via USPS between April 21 -23. Get your DIY on and order yours now!
I am so, so, so excited to be offering a full, video tutorial for the 8228 panty. There are several tutorials on how to make the bralette – I filmed one for Mimi G – but tutorials for the matching panties? There aren’t many. Such lonely panties ;(
In the tutorial, I walk you through each and every step, showing you how to sew the high(er) waisted panty. The pattern comes with instructions, but I demonstrate additional tips and tricks as well as a variation – applying a lace trimming at the top waist, which comes from my kits. If you’re not ready to get into full blown lingerie making, or you’re a newbie, this is a great project for you. You can toe into the world of stretch fabrics, elastics, zig zag stitches without diving in head first.
Phew! I think I covered it all. Let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions below.
Now it’s your turn.Watch the tutorial!

Want to learn in person? Every month, I host 1 day workshops at my studio in Philadelphia. Located in the Fishtown area of the city and over the course of 8 hours, I walk students through each step of how to make a bra. Seriously, this is more than just an ordinary sewing class. It’s a workshop event with giveaways, photography, catered lunch, goody bags and more. See photos from past workshops here and sign up here!
