Making lingerie

By Youanna

This post is all about how I repurposed a t-shirt giving it a new life, a totally new meaning. The reason I was given this opportunity was because the seams in the original construction of the T were poorly made and were scratching the skin when hubby was working out. Last week he told me that he had enough of this T and handed it to me to play with it creatively.

I decided to make new panties for myself. This was not really a difficult project, as I have sewn panties before. Below is this whole story in pictures:

Basting the lining in place – so both sides will be encased in the fold-over-elastic (FOE)

2nd step – coverstitch the other half of FOE, over the zig-zag stitching
