(O artigo traduzido em Português será publicado em breve está publicado aqui)
There's no secret that me and Paco Peralta are long time friends and that I admire his work tremendously. Today I'd like to introduce you the patterns he creates and sells on his Etsy shop BCN Unique patterns and again, I'm doing this review because I truly admire his work and I love his patterns (I've sewn quite a few of them always with an excellent outcome; as I write this article I’m sewing his latest pattern, the Cassock coat). This is not a sponsored post by all means, I just want to highlight my friend's outstanding job as an independent pattern maker and let my readers know what to expect when buying one of his patterns.
First let me introduce the designer Paco Peralta: He's a Spanish couturier and sewing/fashion blogger and through the past few years he has been sharing his creations and invaluable knowledge on his blog BCN-UNIQUE, publishing several tutorials and articles on…

A Yellow and Ivory lingerie set: Simplicity 8228 B and Montgomery panties

Image
EN Summary: When I saw this yellow lace at Bodil’s Bwear.se I remembered the envelope photo of Simplicity 8228; unfortunately the length of lace I had ordered wasn’t enough to make the complete set (at least for my size) so I opted for making a pair of matching panties which take considerably less lace, the Montgomery briefs from Orange Lingerie. Keep reading the full review.  ---PT Sumário: Mal vi esta renda amarela na loja online BWear.se, lembrei-me logo das fotos do envelope Simplicity 8228; infelizmente a quantidade de renda que encomendei não foi suficiente para fazer o conjunto completo no meu tamanho (só sobrou um bocadinho depois de fazer o soutien), por isso optei por usar um molde diferente para a parte de baixo, as cuecas Montgomery da Orange Lingerie.
