Sewin’ My Knickers

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.

  8. Tutorial would be awesome! I’ve seen other tutorials, but not with the stretch lace, which looks both easier and prettier than other patterns I’ve seen.

  9. A tutorial would be great. This is something I’ve always wanted to do–make my own underwear.
