I’ve always wanted to make knickers but just assumed that it would be a bit tricky, it’s actually surprisingly very easy.
I made them with the help of this video from threadbanger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg_s9i8k9o0
and with the help of this pattern: http://www.threadbanger.com/post/11283/clare-bares-undwear-pattern
The pattern is a size small, so I had to change the measurements a little. I also didn’t have underwear elastic and just used normal, it seemed to work ok. I made a test knicker to begin with and used elastic thread, yeh that was rubbish. When I make these again I’ll just use regular elastic, unless I find special underwear ones.
cotton fabric, cotton thread, elastic.
