Los Angeles, Cal...
During my sewing-practical-things spree, I somehow decided that I needed to make underwear, too. Thankfully, this free pattern was easy to use and yielded a cute pair worthy of VS!
I will add that the instruction sheet merely directs you back to the video, which is not as helpful for me. I prefer reading directions instead of trying to find the appropriate spot in a video. For this project, the construction is pretty self-explanatory so it didn’t bother me too much, with the exception of two important pieces of information: 1/4" seam allowances (I had to watch the video to figure that out), and how to finish the seams (there is no mention of that in the video at all, so I just did what I saw fit).
