It's hard to believe that we've gotten to know eachother this well in just one short year, but here goes...I'm opening my undewear drawer to you....
I was out shopping with a friend awhile ago and commented that I wanted to make some quality undies because the pretty lace ones I buy at the lingerie stores never seem to last very long in the wash. (hand wash underwear??? puhleeeeeze).
She looked at me pretty skeptically. She knows I can make a lot of things, but apparently underwear was a bit of a stretch. So I had to prove to her just how easy it is.
I made all this on one Sunday afternoon with bits and bobs of fabric and elastic that I had in my stash.
So pretty! So comfy! And so easy! (They're full bottom style, but trust me, these aren't granny panties.)
I used this vintage Kwik Sew pattern. The undies are all one piece and the bra is just two little triangles sewn onto some elastic and lace. (being less than ample can sometimes have it's advantages)
I usually go to a Kwik Sew pattern for anything lingerie. Their patterns usually fit great, are easy to follow, and look just like how you think they're going to look.
Don't give into the lingerie industry by buying sweet nothings that end up as nothing in the wash, make your own!
