I spent some time the other afternoon, redrafting the Jalie panty. While I kept the size the same, I did need to increase the rise to accommodate the fold over elastic and eliminate the 3/4 inch stretch lace trim around the waist. While I was at it, I decided to make two pairs of the Brazilian Hipsters from the lace trim that I recently picked up from Needle Nook Fabrics.
And here they are:
Unfortunately, the black lace does not have nearly as much stretch as the red. I hadn’t noticed that when I picked it up. Not only does this make getting them on a bit of difficult, but I’m sure that they won’t last long considering all the stress the seams will have put on them. Although, I have to admit, they still look nice on.
If you’re thinking of making some for yourself, I highly recommend this style – it’s EXTREMELY easy to put together and whips up in about 15 minutes or less. I didn’t even use a serger to put these together either, a triple stretch stitch on my machine did all the work.
