I have to admit at first I thought it was silly... making your own underwear?  Then I found the Jalie 2568 pattern that includes among other things a pattern for lace 'Brazilian Hipster' panties as they call them.  It looked very similar to a pair of VS ones that I have that retail for some $16+ a PAIR.  Anyways $2.18 on 1 1/4 yards of 6" stretch lace and a scrap of black knit and here we go!

These only took me about 5 minutes to make including the cutting?  I have white, black & red lace and plan on making myself a bunch more!  They are definitely a 'cheeky' fit as in they aren't covered much, but are super cute & comfy.

This afternoon I decided the one pair look lonely, so I made 5 more to go with it!  I spent 45 minutes total making the 5 pairs.  I did have to modify the pattern a little because my white lace was 5.75" & my red 5.5" not the 6" that it needs.  Anyways it worked out great!  I managed to use up half of the 15 yards of stretch lace that I bought (bought that much to get free shipping).  Not to bad!  

I plan on posting a review of the pattern on my blog soon.

Wow, those are great, I love that style of panties.  Would you mind sharing where you purchased your pattern and fabric?  I have not heard of Jalie patterns (I don't get out much) Grin
Have you made any of the other styles of panties in the pattern?

quick question: where did you find the wide stretch lace?  I can't locate any around here.

I got the pattern direct from www.jalie.com, I really like their patterns, they are cute & fit well... so I ordered 3 & got a 4th free.  I haven't made any of the other styles, but I have been happy with pretty much every Jalie pattern I have made.

As for the lace I got it from a random website when I googled 6″ stretch lace I think it is 5 3/4″, but it worked perfect even though it calls for 6″. The website is http://www.lucysfabrics.com. Heres their stretch lace http://www.lucysfabrics.com/store/categories/Lingerie-Supplies/Wide-Lace/

Those are really cute. I've always had issues finding underwear that both fit well and look cute so I've been making my own for a while now Smiley It's a great way to use up scraps and get the exact item you want without spending much money.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
