Knickers galore!!

Best day every! I never knew that making your own knickers could be such fun.

We had a great time practising sewing jersey, then adding knicker elastic onto the jersey – not as easy as we thought, it was a challenge to get the tension right around the waist and legs of the knickers, but practise made perfect and Staceys flamingo print jersey knickers looked great.

We then moved on to a hipster pattern with some lovely stretch lace. As some of the lace wasn’t wide enough for the pattern I made an alteration, making the bottom half in jersey and kept the top half in the lace. I think it worked really well.

I’m just waiting to hear back from Becky and Stacey to see how comfy they are, but I get the feeling I’ll be making more; maybe the ladies at work will get some as Christmas presents….
