How fitting that my first post is in Stitch and Botch.

So, I'm making my dd some Good-Nites-like underwear. Ok, trying to make underwear. After a day and a half working on these things, I end up with what looks like underwear designed by M.C. Escher.

My dw bought me my first serger for Xmas. Thank goodness it came threaded and ready to go, otherwise I doubt I would have even tried to figure it out yet. Anywho, I'm trucking along, make the lining, and it all looked good. Make the cover, still looking good. Then a thread snapped. "Crap," I think, "how the hell do you rethread this thing?" Take apart my sewing corner to find the instructions, and an hour later (after yelling, "What do you MEAN, it doesn't come with a lower looper threader?!?!? What the hell IS a lower looper threader? AGH!" a few times) I've got it rethreaded.

Somehow in all the frustration, I completely forget how to put the pants together, and ended up doing this:

Yes, the lining is connected to the elastic casing, which is in turn connected to the cover, which sounds good in theory, until you take a closer look and realize that the crotch of the lining is in fact connected to the top of the leg hole of the cover.

*bangs head on wall* eventually, she WILL have wearable pants.

*UPDATE* She now has wearable pants. And is ecstatic. And will never repeat the words I was using as I worked on these.
