More About Underwears
So, I need the underwear pattern so I can buy a bunch of them and include that into the price of the class. Yeah, I thought about just handing out a trace but that is dishonest. And, if I find a pattern by an individual designer (like, say, through Etsy) I would be supporting their efforts. I guess I could make my own -- Lord knows how many times I've used the Kwik Sew pattern, I could probably draw out a pattern on my own. But, I am lazy.
In any case, I found this pattern for Cheeky-Panties through the Burda site. I love Burda -- it's very "Euro" but some of their patterns are a hoot. Anyway, if you go to the main Burda Style page, it says their patterns are copyright-free, so I guess I could just trace and give them out, but it just feels wrong. But, as a tip, you can go to their site and look at the free patterns. So, I'm going to try to do the Cheeky-Panties pattern and see if it will give me a heartier panty for use with t-shirts. Really, the only problem with the Kwik Sew pattern I'm using now is that I have to use heavy-duty elastic on the waist or it falls off my butt! I bought over 500 yards of lilac and powder blue panty elastic from Hospice Attic about a year ago, and each pair of underwears I've used them with just doesn't have the elasticity I need. With the CATO Institute undies I made (see this post for pics) I clipped off about an inch of the waist band elastic the instructions says to use, and that seems to have helped.
