Everyone deserves Pretty Lingerie – Esme Pants and Rosie BraBy Susan | Comments: 1 | June 9, 2016
I spotted this set on instagram and thought it would be so sweet made up in the Tumeric lace kit I had in the shop. I sort of forgot about it till Evie La Luve had a birthday sale and they I grabbed both pieces so I could give them a try.
When cutting out the pattern I noticed it had a few small errors (not lining up in certain areas) nothing major just something I noted.
I’ve made the Rosie Bra with no lining just the lace and the mesh. I think next time I might try going down a size in the Rosie Bra as it could afford to be a little more snug.
The instructions weren’t super clear. There are written instructions and then photos underneath but I found many of the photos were too close up for me to see clearly what is happening. I found it easier to look at the finished photos and figure it out from there. My advice would just be to go slow and keep another bra on hand to follow along with if necessary?
The Esme pants are cute, I’m not sure if I got my size right but I’ll check after wearing them as it’s always hard to tell with just a quick try on. I had a little bit of trouble getting the gusset and crotch right, a few lines of extra stitching and it’s all fine just not as neat as I’d like. I couldn’t find my fold over elastic so I just used regular picot elastic for the waistband and it seems to have worked fine.
I really like the way the lace crosses from the front to the back it’s a really cute detail.
Pattern: Esme pants and Rosie Bra from Evie la Luve
Alterations: Try a size down on the bra next time.
