First sewing of 2013

Brace yourself,  my first sewing session of 2013 is not going to have the wow factor, but sew I did.  Yep more underpants.  These are quick to sew, I think I made two pairs for my D Mike and a pair of panties for me in about 1.5 hours.

As you can see from the close-up of the stitching I used the reverse side of my cover-stitch on all the seams giving a good external finish, the same as the RTW pair that I copied to make these pants.

So these two make a set of 6, I have now used up all my wide elastic, and need to get some more ordered, but they are easy to make and a fraction of the designer pair I copied.

I hope you all had a wonderful evening last night - ours was spent cuddled up on the sofa watching TV - sounds boring to some, but it was perfect for us.

Back to work tomorrow boo hoo..... Catch you later......

  1. They look great - I think a cover-stitch machine may be on the radar later in the year!!
