Underwear have got to be the easiest, most fun things to sew ever! I’m not sure I’ll ever need to buy another pair!
I bought several yards of stretch lace trim from Lace Heaven. Here is a link to the exact item I ordered: Stretch Lace. They have 43 fun colors to choose from, and you get some pretty amazing pricing discounts when you order multiple yards. I ordered 6 yards each of 5 different colors (Nude, Pale Lime, Soft Peach, Brown and White) and got each yard for $0.50! Totally worth it, if you ask me. I’d say it takes about 2 yards to make each undergarment, so I should have enough to make 15 knickers. The fabric is a good quality jersey and it doesn’t take much fabric at all to make them.
Would anyone be interested in a tutorial? I made the pattern from a pair of my very favorite undies that finally bit the dust.
