Nowhere In Parti...
If the elastic on underwear is still good, but the fabric is falling apart, you can use this technique to re-make your underwear from an old t-shirt.
It took me about 5 hours to make 2 undergarments, not including time to take apart the old underwear. This will probably take less time with experience. Based on time alone, at $20 per hour, these undergarments cost $50 each. But the actual material cost was $0 because I already had old t-shirts and underwear on hand. So if you have spare time, it is a very economical and easy project.
