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