Ah Skivvies! Undies! Panties! Whatever you choose to call them, they’ve been keeping our naughty bits covered for centuries!
Today’s refashion begins as two pieces: The first, a stretchy pale blue top with stretched-out arms that was dated and not very flattering.
The second, a pair of my favorite lacy skivvies whose elastic threads were beginning to come undone. :(
I love the comfy fit of my lacy heinie holder, and decided to make another pair. :)
First, I cut out the pieces.
Then, I pinned them to a trimmed-out section of the top.
Then, I cut out the pieces for what would be my new skivvies!
When cutting out the piece for the crotch, make sure you cut out two pieces that will end up sewn together.
I sewed my pieces together…
I pinned under the top hem of my new knickers.
Then, I sewed it down with some lovely pale pink thread using a zigzag stitch, so the waistband could stretch. :)
So…my new skivvies were cute and all…but I decided to give them a bit more personality. ;)
I’m not going to show you an after pic of them on me (This ain’t that kind of website), but rest assured, they fit like a charm! :)
I had never made my own skivvies before this refashion, but I definitely plan on making more! I’ve seen lots of tutorials out there, and can’t wait to give ’em a go!
