 What do you call these things? I call them knickers, the word panties just freaks me out haha, underwear? underpants? undies? ANYWAY whatever you call them, we all wear them and you may as well sew your own because it takes like 10min to cut it out and stitch it together and can you really go wrong with that? Also the scrap-busting is PERFECT with these!

i went the easy route with these and used bands for the waist and leg holes instead of fancy elastic! I do have lingerie elastic and also fold-over elastic but the sort of underpants i wear have sturdy waistbands (ie bonds) so i went with what i knew i was going to love. and i do, i love them :D

I love the cut of them too, i guess it depends on your fabric but mine is very high stretch so they're high waisted on me and i love the leg cut as well. I think they're flattering! the seams are on teh front instead of the sides so you can do some fun colour blocking. I didn't get a pic of the inside gusset but i used a more cotton based stretch fabric since it was going against a very important part of my body and i felt it needed to breath a bit you know? Anyway the gusset has cactii on it so it's still cute too!

The fabric is from Sew Big Fabrics, it was my first ever custom order and while it was from the US (i'm starting to order from australian places now bc, the shipping is intense, and also i want to support aussie made!) i couldn't NOT because the prints were SO CUTE. Also i bought it knowing that not a scrap of this fabric was for the kids, it's all for ME okay? About time :D they're really friendly and the fabric is sooo insanely soft I love it. I get so many compliments on my shirt!

The shirt is the Union St Tee by Hey June, its my go to for t-shirts because it's such a good fit and i get a good looking shirt every time. I've bought a few cute RTW shirts from artists because i love their prints (and supporting artists) but the fit is really boxy and bad so i'm trudting in m union st tee to cut them into a more flattering shape!
