The Year in YOUR Orange Lingerie Makes: Esplanade Bra

This is the time of the year where I look back at the prior year and plan for the year ahead. One of my favorite parts of this process is looking back at all the great versions of our patterns that YOU made!

Over the last few weeks of the year, I am going to highlight your makes of 2017. For each garment I include a link to the Instagram account and/or blog of the maker so you can read more about their project and see more of their work.

Our first pattern release of the year back in January was the Esplanade bra. You all made some lovely long line strapless bras and DRESSES! Seeing dresses built around this pattern has been such an unexpected treat! What a great use of this pattern!
