I’ve discovered a new obsession, making my own underpants.
And colorful ones.
They all have cotton crotch panels(even if the main fabric is synthetic),
and little heart tags in the back.
I made a pattern by cutting apart and tracing a pair of old faithfuls.
And I mostly use thrifted T-shirts to make them from. I have tried fold-over elastic, underwear elastic (with a decorative edge), lace elastic, and plain old everyday elastic. Plain old has worked the best, and it is also the cheapest and easiest to come by.
I love my undies, they fit me exactly right and they are comfortable beyond measure.
