Underwear

Underwear

This series, from 2009-2010, includes many panties, several camisoles and bras, two negligees, and a few masks. I share a selection here.

Everything was carefully constructed, often with strange sewed details and finishing, from cloth I salvaged. The fabric I worked with had stories that were somehow important to me at the time (and, in Use It All Up's rules, had to be used for something functional). Stitching, dangling threads, and trim allow the underwear to behave as drawing in many cases. All cut and sew patterns are original, in so far as any is. (Clothes continue to amaze me in that, as well as being derived from a pattern, most are also that same pattern, i.e., their own replication instructions.) With varying degrees of functionality and comfort, everything here is wearable. However, except for checking fit, nothing in the Underwear series was worn. In that regard, these are SubOptimal Products.
