The Panties Challenge!

I challenged my friends over at  Garderobs Reformen / The Wardrobe Reform last week to make undergarments. It was really difficult and I had to struggle a lot. In the end I made two pair of panties. They look kind of cute but the polka dot pair are not comfortable at all :) Non elastic fabric was not at good idea but I liked the 50′s feel of it.
I drew a pattern from a pair that fit well and I experimented in different materials. Folded the hem (around the legs and at the waist,) put the soft elastic under and used the zigzag from the front side of the fabric to fasten the elasitc.

    Hej Lotten!
    Visst är det synd! :) men jag har ju ”tagit ed på” att inte köpa nya kläder på jätte jättelänge så jag får lov att använda dem.
    Men nu förstår jag ju hur det ska gå till så förhoppningsvis blir nästa par bättre :)

    I’m working on some panties for a friend’s bridal shower. we’re supposed to bring lingerie! I’m making some white silk ones that open on the side with wooden buttons!! fun. I made one pair for myself first with a 60′s pattern! turned out good.
