1  Ruffled Undies from Awful Thrifted Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by amyziz on: January 17, 2010 02:56:34 AM
I've been making lots of underwear from old clothes lately.  Mostly cheeky hiphuggers from old t-shirts, but also this thong with ruffles!

I bought this horrible Lauren Ralph Lauren shirt at a vintage store's sidewalk sale just for the fabric. (The store was Blue Velvet, for anyone familiar with awesome Austin shops.)  Its a really lovely peach cotton and very soft.  The pattern, I drafted from a cute pair of purchased undies.  I learned how to finish edges without a serger.  I used lingerie elastic for the waistband and thread elastic to make the ruffles around the front.  I listened to two very solid episodes of  This American Life: 281 My Big Break and 347 Matchmaker.



Sorry if these images inadvertently make you buy iPods. I couldn't figure out a less naughty or weird way to have the undies modeled.

Thanks for looking!  More, bigger, better images on my new blog! (Plus free fun! Extra!)
