While itís no secret that Iím a big fan of rainbow, when it comes to my non-Burning Man underwear Iím a little more monotone. I prefer to keep it simple, so thatís why my new undies are all the same easy to care for color: black.


They are awkwardly modeled by a pillow, and yes, the pillow has pubes.


Theyíre really more of a bikini-style cut than they look on the pillow. I was able to get five pairs out of about 1 yard of slinky cotton jersey from Fabric Planet. I made the pattern myself a few months ago and have finally gotten it tweaked to perfection. Iím able to make the most comfortable undies that fit me perfectly without ever seeing a label or size. The different elastics keep things from getting too boring in my top drawer.


Since I sew for hours a day at work my at-home production has gone down somewhat, but Iím still keeping busy and making all the time.



 I've got more photos on my website.

That's awesome! Do you have a pattern at all or did you just use your own measurements?

The original pattern was made from some undies I'd bought, but since I've made it about 5 separate times I've tweaked it to fit me just right!

I have been wanting to make my own underwear for awhile now because, while I love Victoria Secrets underwear, they aren't the durable and the lace rips too easily.  These are totally right up my alley and the pillow is funny.  lol

My favorite underwear (of unknown provenance) just ripped in the drier, and I have been thinking of making some to replace it.  I will certainly not have such a funny model, though Tongue Great job!
