Win a Lacey Thong kit!

8 February 2013, 14:13

Have you been inspired by all the activity this week during Lingerie Week and fancy sewing your own Lacey Thong now?

Would you like to win a kit with all the bits you need to make your very own? (Of course you do!)

In the spirit of lingerie and bra kits you can buy from stores online, I shopped my (cough, rather extensive) lingerie sewing stash to put together all the bits you’ll need to make a Lacey Thong pattern (suitable for any of the sizes).

Included in this kit are:

(If I actually find the fuchsia stretch satin I know I have somewhere in my stash, I’ll update this post and add in a second giveaway kit, too)

I’m happy to ship this anywhere in the world, but I do ask that you only enter if you’re actually intending to make my Lacey Thong pattern with it (so if you’re not comfortable wearing thong-style underwear, please leave it for someone else to win!).

For a chance to win, please leave a comment below describing your favourite lingerie colour combination. I’ll pick a winner through random number draw on Valentine’s Day (14th February).

The competition is now closed, congratulations, Carol!



  1. Hmm, that’s tough – I have to say black & red (I’m feeling Valentine’s) or white and pink.

  2. Black or chocolate with teal. Or black and pink.

  3. I was going to say pastel blue/cream, but the two bras that I just made are so far from that, it isn’t even funny. So I think I’ll go with black/grey with red trim, like my new favorite.

  4. Black and teal. I’m really into teal lately.

  5. Lately my favorite color combination is orange and pink. Not that any self respecting retailer makes anything in that combo, though.

  6. I prefer “neutrals”—black, white, beige—either together or as solid colors for lingerie. I almost always wear thongs.

  7. I don’t wear thongs so please don’t enter me. But I’m loving these posts so I wanted to comment (I blog too and love comments). I think black on black is my favorite lingerie color combo. I have a Prima Donna bra that’s ivory and pink lace and it’s one of my favorites too.

    Mary    Feb 8, 03:57 PM    #
  8. I actually think it is a pretty pattern. Rarely I do wear thongs though now I can’t. Big tummy and thong looks unsexy together in my opinion. The colour combo does look interesting. And what else? If it comes with a matchy simple slip on bra… oh what a sexy couple it would be.

    — Melissa    Feb 8, 04:25 PM    #
  9. I will definitely make it and blog about it. I just won’t model it on the blog—tee, hee. My favorite color combo in lingerie is lavendar and peach.

    Rachel    Feb 8, 04:27 PM    #
  10. ooh, love it! i want to try the pattern but haven’t got any lingerie supplies yet so this would be ideal! i love duck egg blue with cream or coffee coloured lace. or black. can’t go wrong with black.

  11. me me me!! Orange is my absolute favorite color and I love it with either turquoise or fuscia. Sadly, both combos are hard to find.

    Clio    Feb 8, 04:39 PM    #
  12. I love the combo of deep red and black.

    — Katelyn    Feb 8, 04:42 PM    #
  13. Oh cool! Black and Red are always good. But, I really love anything white/cream/pastel with vintagey embroidery on it. There – is that enough made up words?

  14. I am planning to make your lacy thong as a valentines gift for myself to “share” with DH. I adore your pattern

    Shinygreenpenny    Feb 8, 05:36 PM    #
  15. Thanks so much for sharing the pattern for thong Knicks with us. Maybe winning the kit would spur me onto making my own collection. I don’t really have a favourite, but if pushed, black with a bit of silver trim. But I don’t ever wear matching. Comfort and for as more important to me than colour!

    — Pauline    Feb 8, 06:10 PM    #
  16. I’m very fond of pale pink with black. I think it’s such a classic, girly combo with a little bit of edge.

    — Lauren    Feb 8, 06:23 PM    #
  17. My favourite is black & red, or cream & lilac. I love this pattern!

    — Anne    Feb 8, 06:34 PM    #
  18. Definitely a thong girl here, but with a hard to find bra size I’m usually limited in my colors. I haven’t begun to figure out if I could sew my own. But a girl can dream so I’m dreaming of black and pink combos.

    — Carol    Feb 8, 06:41 PM    #
  19. I am IN! I’m actually going to pick up bits and pieces this weekend to do this, some regular undies and a camisole/tank top. but it would be fun to try the cool stuff you’ve got too. Thanks for shipping internationally. Hope I win!

    — Jodie    Feb 8, 07:24 PM    #
  20. Black tan turquoise or gold! A combo of any 2 of those!

    Kristonlion    Feb 8, 08:00 PM    #
  21. My perfect colour combo would be coffee and duck egg blue or anything with polka dots. Thanks all your hard work in producing this pattern.

    — Sarah    Feb 8, 08:33 PM    #
  22. I checked my lingerie drawer in order to answer, but I have underwear in every possible colour, as it seems. But purple and black is always nice.
    Thank you so much for the patterns!

    Mari-Liis    Feb 8, 08:39 PM    #
  23. I’d make a pair for my daughter – she likes neutrals best (which I think is kind of boring!)

    — Nancy    Feb 8, 09:24 PM    #
  24. I love this pattern. I think my fave combo is pale pink & chocolate brown.

    — Clair    Feb 8, 09:44 PM    #
  25. I love bright undies, so my favourites are bright purple with turquoise lace trims :) I’d love to give making these a go!

    MizzBusby    Feb 8, 11:20 PM    #
  26. I would do sexy, slinky black and red or maybe all out with a cheetah print and creamy peach.

    — Mary j    Feb 8, 11:36 PM    #
  27. Ballet pink and black is a classic favorite.

    — Susan    Feb 9, 12:19 AM    #
  28. I love brights, so any combo of hot pink, yellow, turquoise, lime, orange, black would work for me! Thanks for providing the pattern.

    Sewingelle    Feb 9, 01:24 AM    #
  29. I really like a soft blue with pumpkin trim. But then, anything I can incorporate orange into is a winner in my opinion. :)

    Kris    Feb 9, 02:19 AM    #
  30. My favorite combo is a pale aqua/seafoam green and white. Its pretty and girly without it being PINK.

    Rebecca    Feb 9, 02:40 AM    #
  31. Love it! My fave colors are beige/black or fuschia/black

    — Connie    Feb 9, 03:57 AM    #
  32. Thanks for the giveaway!
    Black is my favourite.

    — Piret    Feb 9, 06:25 AM    #
  33. Just about always wear a thong they are so comfortable. I love purple and red together

    — Sue    Feb 9, 07:26 AM    #
  34. I don’t wear thongs, so please don’t enter me in the draw, but just wanted to say I really enjoy reading your lingerie posts, and the orange and black looks awesome together. My favourite combo is black and bright pink – lacy and fun.

    — Terri    Feb 9, 07:57 AM    #
  35. Grey and lilac/purple are my favourite combination for everything, not just lingerie. For lingerie especially, though, I also like brown/turquoise.

    — Kat    Feb 9, 09:50 AM    #
  36. Looks nice I downloaded the pattern. But don’t know when I am making it as at the moment I do not have that fabric. But it looks very fun to make!

    — Lienepien    Feb 9, 09:52 AM    #
  37. Loving your posts on lingerie :) I like lots of different combos, but I’ll say teal and grey – very pretty.

    Vicki    Feb 9, 10:29 AM    #
  38. I LOVE dusty light blue, tone on tone for my lingerie. Something about this combination is so dainty. Thank you so much for the tute and free pattern! Starting mine today :)

    — Geni    Feb 9, 06:32 PM    #
  39. I love plum and black- I plan on using you pattern too :)

    — Marlies    Feb 9, 06:54 PM    #
  40. I love the combination of peach and cream. Thank you for drafting such a great pattern!!! Hope you feel better very soon.

    — Narayani    Feb 10, 07:55 AM    #
  41. I love pastel colours, but would try any combination but black. I need to buy supplies before starting on this. Get better soon. Anita

    — Anita from Basel    Feb 10, 07:11 PM    #
  42. I like black on black. Or maybe black and white. Does that count as a color? I guess I am boring.

    — Isidore    Feb 10, 11:41 PM    #
  43. My regular colour combos are white and beige. For lingerie, I actually like funky prints. My nightie is navy blue with neon orange lobsters and crabs.

    — Andrea    Feb 11, 12:04 AM    #
  44. That’s very generous of you! my favourite lingerie combination is purple and black, or purple and something :)

    sophie o.    Feb 11, 06:13 AM    #
  45. Black & gold. Really black with anything, but gold has been on my mind for quite a while now.

    Michelle    Feb 11, 06:25 AM    #
  46. Wow, exciting! Navy and cream make me feel vintage-y. But for practicality, I generally wear white or black. Fun colours at the weekend :-)

    — Frances    Feb 11, 08:42 AM    #
  47. Well, I love classic black but with a touch of something a bit more girly – mint, pale blue or lilac.Thanks for the free pattern!

    — Jill    Feb 11, 03:30 PM    #
  48. please count me in! my favorite is black and black. not a very interesting combination ha ha! but it always looks good. i do like black and royal blue, too. the orange sherbet color sounds yummy!

    amber    Feb 11, 10:35 PM    #
  49. Grey and white…make me feel relaxed and sporty :) but black is always nice, too :)

    — LM    Feb 11, 11:10 PM    #
  50. i like deep purple and black, or dark maroon and black. :)

    — micks    Feb 12, 04:53 AM    #
  51. My favourite colours for my thongs are black or white with some touch of burgundy. But I love all kinds of colours for underwear.

    — Valerie    Feb 12, 10:44 AM    #
  52. i really love insane colours for underwear – hot pink, crazy purple, bright blue. But honestly, my favourite is black, with small pink details.

    — Katherine    Feb 12, 03:21 PM    #
  53. turquoise and black are a fave colour combination of mine:)

    Chris    Feb 12, 04:47 PM    #
  54. I like pink and black together. It reminds me of French boudior pictures. It’s also a good mix of soft and hard.

    — Geri    Feb 13, 09:49 PM    #
  55. I really like purple n orange or blue and orange and I would make the bra n panties matching of course with the two colors together sumhow
