yes, i'm a brit. that's why i say knickers, and probably confused the hell out of some of you :p

but in my experimentation in the last few weeks of not being at uni yet and being really bored, i made these:

http://kaffrin.armouredminds.com/pants.jpg

they're made from printed jersey which isn't particularly stretchy, so they look mahoosive until you put them on.

the print is of little cartoon dogs saying stuff like 'woof woof' (as dogs do) and 'sniff sniff', which my other half crudely pointed out was kinda appropriate for knickers...

i'm planning to make a cute little matching cami top for them.  Grin

off the topic, but i'm a wanna-be brit.  i like saying things like, "gotta take the lift up to the loo and snatch my jumper-left it on top of the loo rolls!"
it's probably amusing to only me-true brits are like, so?...and americans are like, what?   Roll Eyes i just like saying loo rolls Grin
oh, and the kniskers are hilarious and adorable.  as if i needed another reason to covet a sewing machine.

Cute knickers! Did you use a pattern or were they as simple to make as they look?


Oh and firefly, you amused me and I am a brit. Although I may have been more amused by you being an american being amused by saying those words.. yes.

thank you Smiley

i drew up the pattern myself, with the help of one of my old uni books 'metric pattern cutting'. it was pretty simple - front part, back part, gusset, gusset lining.

and i bought my fabric from leeds market. they also had similar prints with ballerinas, horses and dinosaurs, which i'm hoarding.

Wow cute!  I used the t-shirt underwear pattern on www.getcrafty.com a while back and I've made maybe 6-8 pairs and I LOVE them.  It took a while to get the pattern adjusted to my liking but it was so worth it.  One of my favorite pairs is made from a casino t-shirt -- they say "Your Sure Bet For Fun!!" right across the butt :)

Is that stretch lace I see?  Hmm that'd be easier than threading elastic through casings.
