This Monday mom surprised me by cloning one of my favourites- a pair of undies!
I’ve had these undies for a while and I love them, super comfy boy short style, and with the lace edge leg they’re great for having a smooth edge that doesn’t show through clothes.
But as with every clothing item you love- it can’t last forever. Especially if you leave your laundry on the floor in a house with a dog, a dog that has a special taste for women’s underwear… gross.
However, if you have an amazing mom like I do, she just might surprise you with a clone of them!!
And most helpfully a picture tutorial of how she did it! 🙂 YAY for blogging mom!!
So first she cut the undies apart at the front, back and crotch seam- you don’t need a side seam on a boy short- and flattened the pattern piece down snipping along the elastic to make it lie flat.
Then she traced a pattern – marking the line for the lace. – It’s also handy to put a name and date on the pattern 🙂
Then she cut it out of this super soft stretch cotton 🙂 It was such an amazing match to the lace on my old undies that she cut it off and used it for the new ones!
Stitching on the stretch lace with a twin needle.
Serging up the center seam 🙂
Stitching on the gusset lining.
Then trimming away all the fabric under the lace with some applique scissors.
The final step is the top band elastic!
Oh and a bow of course!! 🙂
Such a fantastic pair of undies 🙂 LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Thanks mom- best surprise ever!
