Not Your Grandma’s Undies

I had a revelation this summer. Where do all my panties go? They are worse than socks for going missing in the wash! Me being me, I, of course, went straight to the internet to hunt up some cute vintage pantie patterns. I was thrilled when I found this 1970

Sew Lovely bikini pattern. I was never going to buy panties again. I think these are just as cute and stylish as the over priced ones I was buying at the mall. They are made from hand dyed bamboo stretch knit fabric, black net mesh with red swiss dots, and black picot elastic. The best thing about them? They are so easy to make!

I am a professional seamstress and costumer living in New Orleans. I have a serious pattern collecting problem. I love to sew just about anything. But, if left to my own devices, I would prefer to sew anything that was worn between the years 1870 and 1970.
