Sew Fab: Norah Nightie and panties - BATMANIFYED10:59 pm
Sorry, the word panties always makes me laugh. I don't know why, I just can't ever take anything seriously if the term panties is involved. So I'll be calling them knickers, which will probably make YOU laugh.
Anyway! For me second part of sewing some rad stuff from the Sew Fab Pattern Sale, I decided that the Norah Nightgown and Panties was definitely on the todo list. I'm a sucker for handmade underwear, since I've been sewing Eddie up a hoard of little knickers (yeh man! the girl is toilet trained already!). The pattern is by Greenstyle Creations, which I was vaguely aware of but super excited to try out. I was very impressed with the pattern and the instructions! I thought it would be a little tricky, totally wasn't. The only tricky part was when my overlocker decided to chuck a fit while sewing the knickers.
I sewed it up using a t-shirt dress i bought off ebay that was always too tight and too short for me. It's basically a Lazy Oaf knockoff, which annoys me because knock offs are not okay in my book! However the fabric was cool and I never wore it so I hacked it up into a cute nightie and boy-leg shorts set!
I wish I could show you what it looks like on, completely. Those undies make my ass look so fine, but there really is no tasteful way to show you my rear end on the internet, so instead you're going to get a flatlay and you can use your imagination. Instead of making the undies from one fabric, I colour blocked it. The pattern is for boy-shorts and a 'thong' (LOL I AM SORRY! I'm like 15 sometimes. In Australian, thongs are for our feet aka what Americans call flip-flops, so to me, what you guys call a thong i call a g-string)(I never thought I'd be having this conversation on my blog ever.) ANYWAY, the boy-shorts have a seam up the front and back, leaving the sides seam free which is kinda cool.
Most of you would make this sexy, and while I can do sexy i really didn't want to. I wanted to do practical, I wanted to do me, aka geekify all the things.
Please go check out my friend Kelly's nightie and undies because she did a REALLY fantastic and tasteful job and I think she deserves a lot of page hits and comment love!!
