I made some undies. YAY!!
I was sort off forced into making these. Due to the fact that I had an emergency C-Section when having Noah, I was advised by the midwives to invest in large undies. I'm talking full briefs here people, those that threaten to reach your chest. So I did just that, handing out a couple of pounds for shiny new size 16 undies from M&S.
I loved those undies. Loved them so much that even when I did not need them, I continued wearing them. I could have lived in them forever. Mr.Dibs on the other hand, was not impressed. He started with subtle hints about my oversized undies, mumbling here and there. I ignored him of course. The mumbling grew louder, untill one day, fed up with my lack of action, he plainly told me what he thought of my lovely size 16 M&S undies. I'm not going to repeat it here, but suffice it to say these new lace undies I have made are a direct result of Mr. Dib's complaint.
This is not the first time I am dabbling in underwear construction. Last year I went crazy, made a few undies, went on a stretch lace shopping binge on ebay, and then promptly fell out of love with making my own undies.
I used the same Jalie pattern as last time.This is such an easy pattern to use, and I really love this style of undies. As you would have noticed, there is only one really bright colour. Somehow its really hard to find wide stretch laces in the right width and colour here in the UK. I intend to buy as many bold colours as I can afford when I get to Amsterdam. Neon green anyone?
