Has it ever crossed your mind to make your own undies...
Undies is probably a too ordinary word for these. These are 'Madeleine mini Bloomers' a free pattern and instructions download from Colette. Cute and flirtatious aren't they?
Colette have other 'Dainties' patterns.... all very pretty
The Nutmeg sewing Pattern consists of a bralette with ribbon straps, it ties at the back again with ribbon and includes French knickers and/or optional tap pants... (what are tap pants?). The description says they have "a pointed yoke are longer and sit at the natural waist." Both designs are cut on the bias to maximise drape and flatter feminine curves.
The Cinnamon is a bias cut slip dress the pattern also includes instruction to make a camisole to compliment the Nutmeg undies set.

I don't think there's much to say about these gorgeous patterns, they say it all for themselves. So next time you're fancying something different to make or the high street just isn't supplying what you want... remember these. Feminine, gorgeous, flirtatious, retro, cute and maybe a little dangerous ( :) ) you couldn't really imagine wearing anything else under those gorgeous Colette dress designs, could you?
I wonder what Colette are suggesting by naming the patterns after spices? I'm saying nothing!
