The Madalynne x Simplicity 8436 lingerie sewing pattern is perfect choice for all those off the shoulder blouses and dresses. It is a strapless bra with lace panels at front and has side and center front seams with plush channeling with plastic boning to add support. The panty is a simple thong with lace panels.
What about those off the shoulder tops that literally everyone is wearing? Ladies, you’ll need a strapless bra for your ladies!
Strapless bras get a band rap; in terms of annoying fashion problems, having your bra shimmy down to your hips is up there with untangling a necklace. Hate, hate, hate! To fight gravity, there are tricks to keep things in place, which have been designed into this pattern. First, the band is narrow-er. Not super wide, but not super skinny. A happy medium between being supportive and flattering. Additionally, the seams all around the bra have channeling encased with plastic/sewable boning and the top and the bottom are finished with silicone backed elastic. I really like the addition of the channeling/boning – it elevates the bra from fitting like a bandeau to having structure and support. Want more design inspiration?

Bra is available in sizes 32A through 42DD and the panty is available in sizes XS-XL.
