Description

My first attempt at underwear. I kept things simple with stretch cotton and fold-over panty elastic for both the briefs and the thong, and some stretch lace for the waist band of the thong. For the patterns I simply copied some existing underwear I have. The briefs fit amazingly well, and are super comfy, although they were my first try with the fold-over elastic edging, and my ends didn’t line up terribly well. The thong is a little wide in the front, and the stretch lace rolls up badly when I put them on. I really should have predicted that! I’ll definitely change a few things the next time I try this one.

Material Notes

Stretch cotton, fold-over elastic edging, stretch lace.

      Thanks! I was surprised by how easy they were to whip up. I’ll keep an eye out for yours :)
