"Hey Doggie Darling, I totally forgot that by the power of MacBook, I can totes take a phots of my newly made undies for my blogger friends to see!"
So, the grey material was Husbie's tshirt (one of those promo ones for Little Creatures - for some reason we had a couple of them, they were kinda the wrong fit for him), and the red elastic is from the Remnants Warehouse (and so is the little lopsided bow!), so it's no 100 per cent refashed, but totally close enough. I remembered the little pocket (thanks to you if you reminded me this) on the inside, you can see the overlocked white bit at the back there.
They were modeled on another pair of older undies that I cut up before they fell apart, and I think next time I'm going to sew all the elastic on first, then sew up the sides, as it was a bit tricky sewing it on after.
Now. Questions for you, experienced seamstresses: I've never really sewn on elastic before! For this one I folded the elastic over the grey material, and zig zagged it together, stretching it out a bit as I went along. But it was kinda tricky, and I had to re-sew over the bits that the material slipped out of, and it's kinda puckered a bit. They're totally fine to wear though, but next time I wanna get it perfect. I thought I had to stretch out the elastic and the knit so that it fits well, but perhaps I just stretch out the elastic? Or do I not stretch any of it out, and it fits well, and it's all about the stretching over the body and then sitting flat. Am I making any sense whatsoever? Probably not! I'm hopeless at explaining!
Anyways, better go, I'm watching the Oscars! And gotta keep looking at these dresses! I love that they screen it almost live here in Australia now, it's the perfect time for me to watch it!
