I love your bag.  I especially like the fact that it is not uniform in color like I am accustomed to seeing.

WOW YOU ARE AMAZING!!! YOU MUST NOT I BEG YOU NOT TO FROG THIS PROJECT!!!    Can you tell me what you don't like about the fit?  What were your expectations?  Did you make it for a special occassion?  Where did you get the pattern?  It may not be as hard as you think to modify it to fit like you want.

I LOVE IT!!!!!

I am finally going to write the pattern:

The best way to do this is to find a pair of panties that you like and to model the lace after this shape.

The panties are made in two pieces front and back.

You start from the bottom (center of panty smallest section) and increase to the top.

Front:

First Row:  Chain 16, work [1dc, 2ch, 1dc] into 8th ch from hook, 3ch, skimp 4 ch, work [1dc,2ch,1dc] into next ch; (3 chns lft) 1 dc into last ch, turn.

Second Row:  4ch (count as 1tr), skip first 2ch sp, work 5tr into next 2 ch sp, skip 3 ch sp, work 5 tr into next 2 ch sp, skip 2ch 1 tr into next ch turn.

Third Row:  5 ch (count as 1dc, 2ch), skip first 3tr, into next tr work [1dc, 2ch, 1dc], 3 ch, skip 4tr, into next tr work [1dc, 2ch, 1dc], skip 2tr ch 2, 1 dc into 4th of previous row, turn

At this time you need to place the lace on your body to see if you have reached the point of where your panties get wider. 

IF YOU NEED TO WIDEN YOUR  WORK TAKE OUT THE THIRD ROW AND DO THE FOLLOWING INCREASE:

Row Increase:  5ch, 1dc into the same st as the 5ch, skip first 3tr, into next tr work [1dc, 2ch, 1dc], 3 ch, skip 4tr, into next tr work [1dc, 2ch, 1dc], skip 2tr ch 2, 1 dc, 2ch and 1 dc into 4th ch of previous row, turn

Next Row:  4ch, 4tr in 2ch space, skip first 2ch sp, work 5tr into next 2 ch sp, *skip 3 ch sp, work 5 tr into next 2 ch sp; rep from * to last sp, skip 2ch 1 tr into next ch turn.

IF YOUR STRIP DOES NOT NEED TO BE INCREASED
AT THE THIRD ROW, BUT AT THE 4TH ROW DO THE FOLLOWING INCREASE ROW:

Row Increase:  4ch, 2tr in same st, skip first 2ch sp, work 5tr into next 2 ch sp, *skip 3 ch sp, work 5 tr into next 2 ch sp; rep from * to last sp, skip 2ch 3tr into next ch turn.

Next Row:  Ch5, [1dc, 2ch, 1dc] in same st, *3 ch, skip 4tr, into next tr work [1dc, 2ch, 1dc]; rep from *, skip 2tr ch 2, 1 dc into 4th of previous row, turn
 
After you do your two increase rows repeat the second and third row until you need to increase again.  You will need to keep measuring your work either to your body or to the panties you are using for shaping to figure out when you will need to increase your row.

For the Back side:

You will do the exact same thing but you may need to increase for 4 rows at a time instead of 2 rows.  In that case you will just repeat the third row increase and the fourth row increase twice.

I hope that my instructions are not confusing but I will be happy to help anyone along the way if you need some.  Unfortunately, I don't have time right now to post a picture tutorial but if I find the time, I will do it!

Enjoy, Leeanne

I LOVE YOUR WORK!!! Where did you get the pattern?  When I look at it I think of how it would look if the very center of the work were attached to back of a wedding gown as the train.  I would love to hear from you!
