So what's a girl to do when her underwear is falling apart, but she's too cheap to shell out upwards of 3$ per pair for anything decent?  Make her own, of course!  Wink  I tore apart an old comfy pair to use as a pattern and after several incarnations here is what I have--the most comfy knickers I have ever had, no lie.  We'll see how they stand up to daily use, but so far they are awesome.  Very easy to make as well, each pair takes me about 45 minutes and most of it is just sewing on the trim around the waistband and the legholes.  Here are a few of what I've made so far (sorry they're rather wrinkly, they were being photographed on my rumply bed!):

These are great! I really love the last pair. They would be super cute with a matching bra.

So cute! I've tried making my own but, alas, I think I need a serger or an even-feed foot before I will be able to sew knits without craptastic results. Your post makes me jealous!

Very nice!  What sorts of fabrics did you use for these?  I ask because the first pair almost looks like a pair of pajamas that I had once and I was thinking that these undies would be a great way to recycle soft old shirts and such that one doesn't wear anymore.

I would have never thought to make my own panties, but I think I need to try it.  The yellow pair is my favorite  Wink

Thank you for all your nice comments!  Morra Sutherland, I used pretty much anything stretchy that I had in my stash.  The flower material is from an old nighty I got second hand, the hawaiian floral material is from an old shirt, the black pair is also from an old shirt, the teal material is left over jersey knit from another project.  As long as it's stretchy and you keep the stretch going across your body then I would think it could work.  Old shirts are fabulous, you should give it a try!
