Undies down under

Well, goal number one ticked off the list, using Zoes free pattern.

They're a bit rough and ready, but they gave me a good indication of how it all goes together. It too a couple of attempts to get the gusset sorted, but I got there in the end.

They're made from one of The Boys old T-shirts, from SpunOut a few years ago. The heavy long sleeved cotton top was great for playing with fire, but not so great for the rest of the time.
I think it would be a good way to reuse t-shirts with some meaning, but as many have pointed out, the cost of elastic in Australia is quite prohibitive for making a full drawer full. That said, I just found this place which might be slightly better...


  1. Great use of a T-shirt! And that elastic is a really great price - had never heard of Catherine's Place, so thanks for the tip.

  2. Great tip on the elastic! And nice work for your first pair of undies- way to recycle a top :D

  3. I love the idea of using old t-shirts and I think they look great for your first pair!

  4. I was quite impressed with the fit straight off the pattern. Will try out that place and report back!


I love hearing from you!
