Lots of bloggy people have been making knickers lately. Pip's been making them, Veronica's been making them, and so I thought it was high time I had a go.
I've actually been meaning to make my own pants for a while, but it wasn't until I was packing for a trip away recently and could only find two pairs of knickers to pack that I thought that I'd better hop to it!
In true refashion style, I started with an old shirt of boyfriend's advertising the beer brand Beerlao (yes! he gave me permission to cut up one of his old shirts!). I used an old, seen-better-days pair of knickers to make a pattern. Three simple pieces (front, back and gusset) and I was away...
So easy - just overlock the side seams and the gusset in place. Turn the leg openings under and zigzag stitch. Cut elastic to size, join, pin in place under turned-under waist and zigzag stitch in place.
There you have it! Two new, easy, comfy pairs of pants. Beer pants, no less.
