But I hate waste more, and I had about a metre of the stuff left. So in the latest edition of "I'm making knickers, yo.", I give to you my tie-side knickers!
|FairyGothMother's Satin tie-side knickers|
Sadly they ended up just a bit too heavy - and of all things, I worked this out as I was walking around Islington at Commander's birthday dinner. With all his friends. "Yeah hi, how are you? Yeah, hang on a second, MY KNICKERS ARE AT MY KNEES." So they kinda had to come...off.
Well, as my mother said - 'A good woman goes out with her knickers on - whether she comes back with them is a different story!'
But other than that - they were surprisingly lovely to make! I had hardly any problems, and now that I've worked out how to sew knicker elastic on properly I'm certainly going to give it another go! A nice little redeemer for the dreaded Chinese satin, and I have enough to make myself possibly two pairs of knickers from to get me really familiarised with making lingerie.
The most exciting close-ups ever. I'm really happy with the zigzag stitching actually working, you see. Also featuring a hand-sewn gusset.

I will end up making a second pair with thinner/lighter tie-sides in the future, just watch out!
I got a Pinterest!
