I have a big project that I will be starting soon. I can't reveal all yet, but I'm pretty sure you are going to love it. I know I'm really excited about it! Anyway, if blogging is a little light for a couple of weeks, you know why. Sort of.
In other news, I made panties!
Kwik Sew 3167, which includes several different panty styles as well as a camisole, which could even double as a light bra for the young, perky and less endowed. I chose the simplest of the panties, which is sewn from wide stretch lace, so there are no edges to finish and no elastic to apply.
VPL is a thing of the past. Based on my measurements, I made a size M, then altered the crotch curve, scooping it out just the way I would a pair of close fitting pants. The fit is amazing. I am never buying panties again. Did I mention that I got my lace from Sew Sassy (love that site!) for 2.49 a yard, and it takes 1 1/2 yards to make a pair of panties. That brings my cost to about 3.50 per pair, since I used scrap knit for the crotch lining. Seriously, comparable panties at VS are 12.50!! Sewing is awesome.
