I'll show you my Fifi if you show me yours...hehe! Apologies for the childishness, but I'm a bit giddy to finally acquire a cute boudoir set at the ripe old age of 32! The boudoir set in question is Fifi by Tilly and the Buttons, which I had the pleasure of testing a few weeks back.
I won't go into details about the version and instructions I tested, as I know that Tilly's made various of improvements to the finished pattern following feedback. Suffice it to say that it's a lovely little pattern with the high standard of instructions that we've come to expect from Tilly and the Buttons.
The camisole is cut on the bias with soft pleated cups, resulting in beautifully skimmed curves. The top of the camisole is finished with self-made bias binding, which also forms the straps. I used a gorgeous voile for my version and the result is so pretty and feminine!
Although the camisole is not supposed to be close fitting, the back bodice is gently shaped with princess seams to fit the curve of your back.
The pattern also includes little shorts with a narrow stitched-in elastic waistband and cheeky curved hems. Best of all, the insides are all French seamed for a very professional and luxurious finish!
I would have loved to model these for you, as makes always look better worn than flat, but I'm not feeling slim or tanned enough for that at the moment. However, you can see Fifi modelled beautifully here.
Are you a Fifi fan and have you seen Tilly's cool Bettine dress pattern?
