 ;DYay! Grin
I made knickers/pants (is that the right word?)

I cut up an old vest-y t-shirt, and drew round a pair of Primani specials!!
All cut out: (Ignore the crafty mess - I was on such a roll today!)


All sewn up!


The material was stretchy t-shirt stuff, with a purple tie-dye sort of pattern, with diamantes on. The colours have come out really weird - it looks a lot nicer in real life lol! It's also made the stitches look really dodgy, but they're not - I promise!

This was a practice go, using stuff from my stash, which is why the thread was black, I do intend to use a matching colour if I make any more.

I used zig-zag stitching, to keep the stretch, but the stretchy jersey type material was a TOTAL nightmare to work with, it kept clogging, and sticking in the grips on the plate - does anybody have any tips, or know if you can buy a different type of plate for the base of a machine? It's put me right off making any more for the moment!

Thanks for posting these, they look exactly like what I want but can never find in shops! I'll give it a try, but I'm sure they won't turn out as well as yours!
