Pattern Download

I'm currently considering to upload all my patterns and include the download links here in the blog. I usually create my patterns on paper or plastic film and transfer them to SVG with Inkscape. A small script generates A4 tiles from that. These tiles can be printed on an ordinary printer and glued together.

Here are the pattern files for Almrausch Intermezzo:

What do you think? Is this useful? Shall I publish more of my patterns? Can you print them without problems? Please comment.

Almrausch Intermezzo

I was really impressed by Bathina's "Almrausch" underwear set, her first latex creation. She will wear it under her dirndl at the Oktoberfest. So, hurry, if you want so see her.

For my hipser style panties "Tribute to Bathina" I used 0.25mm black latex for the panties and 0.25mm transparent pink latex for the ruffles. 

A second one is made from 0.35mm bubblegum latex and 0.25mm black ruffles, but still unfinished.

I'm currently planning a third one (less hipster style) in white with a zipper in the crotch and some cute decals. 

Bathina, BTW, runs a German forum for sewing and free patterns and a blog, where she talks about a lot of sweet and cute things (like deers). Thank you for your inspiration.

Bubblegum Polka

This pencil skirt is another custom made to measure creation. I used a thinner (0.25mm) latex sheeting this time for the skirt and the ruffles.

The polka dots are hand-cut from 0.35mm white latex. I used the cone of an aerosol spray to draw about 40 circles and cut them out with my rotary cutter. To glue them onto the skirt I cleaned both the skirt and the circles, but applied the latex glue only to the backside of the circles.

I added a 5mm wide black trim to the bottom of the ruffles and a 5mm wide trim of bubblegum colored latex onto the seam of skirt and ruffles.

As an eye catcher I glued four little bubblegum bows to the trim. Latex Kitty has an excellent tutorial about making bows (and there is almost always some trim leftover).

For the waistband I used black elastic lace which I partly soaked with liquid black latex and glued it to the skirt with a 10mm wide bubblegum latex trim.

Bubblegum is a fantastic color, it reminds me of the bubble gum Hubba Bubba. I got the bubblegum latex from Heinz at Latexlabor in Frankfurt, in case you also want some.
