This was a topic covered by the lovely Jenni over at A Cheerful Living Adventure. She talked about making things you would otherwise buy and thought it would be nice to share with you the things that I have made.
Today I would like to talk underwear. Ooh err! I feel slightly embarrassed already.
Underwear as the name suggests is worn (by me anyway!) under the clothes and is therefore not regularly seen by your average joe public (unless you are a builder or a plumber in which case it may be in the job description 😉 ). So why spend a lot of money on something that is only going to be seen by:
- (possibly) your immediate family and
- (God forbid) the emergency services (in which case you probably won’t be in a state to care)
So why then do some places think they can charge the earth for a decent set of underwear?
And by “decent” I mean knickers that cover your bum.
However, mass production’s version of “knickers that cover your bum” mainly consist of so-called “granny knickers” and having only just slid kicking and screaming into my *shhh* 30’s I am not quite ready to go down that road just yet.
If I can’t have a nice, comfortable, reasonably priced set of underwear then I will make my own. Which I did.
Want to see??
This was my actually my second attempt at making a bra. The first attempt fitted but was a bit more “sensible”.
These were also made using the same pattern although they look much bigger due to the colour of the fabric.
Okay they look massive. I’m not actually that big in that area. Am I???*scurries off to check rear end in the mirror*
What have you made recently?
