Description

I didn’t modify the pattern at all (size 38) because I wanted to test the fit as is. Don’t fix what might not be broken, right? Well, they’re awesome. The fit is perfectly cheeky and I am well covered. You know that fear we all* have of being in a car accident and all the doctors and nurses in the ER see us in our ugly undies? I wouldn’t mind these. Adorable. After I wear them a few times I’ll decide if I want to tweak the pattern for size. I didn’t add elastic to the legs because it wasn’t necessary for fit, the fabric isn’t fraying, I’d like avoid the panty line thing, and I have limited selections of lingerie elastic in the stash anyway. I just zig-zagged the crotch sides and it’s fine. I didn’t bother with finishing the end of the crotch piece either because it doesn’t fray. If they fall apart in the wash I won’t care, this was basically FREE project start to finish.

Material Notes

Stretch lace fabric and elastic lace all came from my stash (probably purchased from the dollar table at Walmart years ago)

    Wow, cute. I hadn’t thought of stretch lace, what a good idea. Yours look fab, well done ;-)

    Oh wow, I love them! I should try making some out of stretch lace too… I’ve never seen it though in colours other than white, black, and that nasty skin colour! That teal stuff is awesome!
