It gets worse
The addiction that is. The undergarment addiction specifically.
After making those three panties this week, I casually went over to Sew Sassy’s website and checked out their lingerie elastics. Just a wee look wouldn’t hurt anyone, right?
Well, out of the blue, a package arrived for me yesterday. Apparently my wee look-see included using my credit card and these lovelies came home to roost with me.
I haven’t had much luck with FOE (fold over elastic) yet. My one trial with it was a dismal failure, the slapdash slip I made to go under my new knit skirt. It’s completely stretched out with no recovery. I will have to research FOE’s uses and try not to abuse it in future. How cute is that silver metallic FOE?!?!?! I love it. The other elastics (picot edge) can be used to finish the waistlines and leg openings on panties. Now I just have to find suitable knits with which to make them. Not all are right for undergarments. They need to have enough stretch, but also a lot of recovery or else they stretch out and fall off. Please don’t ask me how I know. :/
Happy panty sewing!
