The Panty Express
Apparently a ticket to Panty Land is one-way only. I am obsessed! I can't stop! After we chatted yesterday, I finished the black and pink pair I started.
What's interesting is how much the fit changes with different fabrics. Super stretchy ones (like the polka dot jersey) result in a super-high fit. Firmer fabrics give you a (relatively) lower waist.
Anyway! I'm dying to make a matching bra for the red and black pair. Can't you just see it?
I also tried adapting my muslin into a hipster-height panty. I just took about 4" off the waistline. It worked well, but they're just not as saucy as the others! Of course, they need a few bows still.
P.S. I should mention that the majority of my stretch fabrics are from Spandex World. They seem to have a comprehensive online ordering system. The elastics are from Sew Sassy, and the ribbons are from my stash.
