Wild Nights Start with Leopard...

So back to the underwear. I made this set using a New Look pattern #6443. The only one I could find with French knickers. Actually it was almost the only one I could find period. I had made a lovely mess of my first attempt which I posted about here (scroll to bottom of page), so I thought I had to try set 2 to see if I had learned anything.

I am happy to report I didn't burn any holes through fabric. I didn't cut out three left sides for the knickers or two for the bodice. I tried to match all of the leopard print stripes. This was a heavier fabric with more polyester in it rather than working with pure silk which made it much easier. The instructions in this pattern were much clearer (except the back still gaped open so elastic was again a necessary last minute addition).

Extremely Crafty recommendation - You'll be happy with the pattern.

So what do you think of this knicker set?
