Question for the group -

I purchased some stretchy nylon with a cute pinup girl print.  Does that material work well for knickers (aka undies)?

Thanks,
Morgan

morgan - i can't see why it wouldn't work... just make sure you cut the pattern pieces out so that the stretch goes across the pants... also you'll probably want to use cotton for the gusset  Smiley

kaffrin - i love leeds market!! are your fabrics from the outdoor or indoor?

Should work!  Use a scrap of cotton knit to line the crotch-part.  And, make a test-pair out of similar material if you're not certain of your pattern.

Good luck!

i know which one you mean - i've bought fabric from them before!! they were always super-helpful. i didn't know it was a family run stall though.

i've never seen printed jersey there before ... maybe i'm not looking hard enough  Smiley i'll be sure to ask next time !!

have you been to that little haby stall, near the florists? they sell some really cheap bits, like bag handles and magnet fasteners. love it!  Grin

Yeah I had that problem too, with my first few pairs.  I was using the getcrafty pattern, and everything was right except the back was just kind of... funny.  Then I realized I had to make the crotch bit about an inch and half shorter --  now they fit just fine.

Keep trying!  Mess with your pattern. Compare to a store-bought pair that fits right.

Have any of you tried taking apart a comfortable pair of store bought ones and using it as a pattern?  I was wondering if it would work if the fabric was a different type.  That is assuming that the fabric stretch is about the same.   Messing around with patterns has never been my strong suit.

Brit question:  Ok, I understand that you call your pharmacists (the people who give you prescription drugs) chemists instead, right?  What do you call the scientists that work with chemicals then?  Are they chemists too?  It's been bugging me for a bit. Smiley

round my way, we call the actual building 'the chemists', but the guy who gives you your drugs is a pharmacist. and if you have a larger shop with just a little dispensary in it we call the little bit a pharmacy.

like, we would say 'i'm off to the chemists' if we were going to the place, but if we wanted to ask the guy something we'd say 'i'd better ask the pharmacist' and if we were in a huge shop looking for the little chemisty bit we'd say 'where is your pharmacy?'

and we call the guys who work with chemicals chemists too.

but the beauty of living in england is that 20 miles down the road, everyone speaks totally differently, and different words mean different things.
