A Pretty Pair

Two yards of fabric can go a long way. So far, I’ve been able to make a shirt and a skirt and still have enough left over for some smaller projects. So, why not make…. underwear?



I went with Jalie 3242 (view A, the low-rise bikini) because this material has a great 4-way stretch which makes these one of the most comfortable pairs in my drawer. And now, this will be one of the prettiest! The fit on these is spot on. The key is to go with your hip measurement and to use fabric with proper stretch – anything less will make your final pair too snug. Construction is simple as well… even a beginner can whip out a pair within an hour or so!

I have a bit more material left so I am thinking that I may whip up a few more pairs in different styles while I’m in lingerie sewing mode. Guess that means it’s time for an elastic run!
