Scraptastic Scrundlewear

Scraptastic Scrundlewear

Last week I worked on some scrap-busting Scrundlewear. I wanted to sew but not commit to any big projects, so I cut about a dozen pairs for a young lady who was in need of underwear replenishment.

Scrundlewear: perfect stash busting project

While I was sewing mindlessly, I came across this post about sewing panty elastic at Emerald Erin. My fold over elastic question has been answered! I finally learned how to get a good, clean elastic finish on the waist bands and leg openings.

The pictures today are pre- f.o.e sewing revelation.

Scrundlewear: Stashbusting Panties

See the where the leg elastic joins at the sice seams? Using Erin’s technique looks so much better. Here I hid the waistband joint with a bow, but the elastic bulk bothered me so much I had to hand stitch it down later.

Now I’m all undie-judgy. These underwear are very “homemade” looking. I was trying stuff with my coverstitch- looks terrible but I learned what not to do.

I really don’t “knit pick” kids pants, but I plan to make nice lingerie soon. Time to hone my skills, and I might as well practice on my remaining pile of fresh cut Scrundlewear.

This pair is my favorite. I got Bella an American Fighter shirt once and she outgrew the length immediately. I haven’t been able to shell out big bucks for a kids tee since.

It couldn’t cut a pair big enough for anyone but my niece. Her pattern is the Classic Panties from Peekaboo patterns. (*affiliate link.)

My daughter outgrew this pattern and moved up to women’s, but they were her favorite in kids sizes. In fact she made me audition a few patterns to make sure they were as comfortable as PAB Classic Panties.

 

Sewing panties

These panties all have self fabric lining. I didn’t have any white jersey. This can make your undies look homemade , but maybe it would look cool in contrasting colors and prints. What do you think, yay or nay?

I didn’t know I had so much to say about simple kids underwear! The whole point of this post is: Yay, I learned some new stuff and future panty sewing will be awesome. Do you have a favorite underwear sewing pattern?

The panties shown are made with the Scrundlewear pattern from Stitch Upon A Time in size XS, using the boy shorts variation. The last pair is PAB Classic panties in size 5/6 with a cinched-in waist and f.o.e.

    These look fantastic! I’m inspired to make underwear. I just love all the fabrics. Thank you for the link on how to get a nice finish on the elastics. I didn’t know you could use the plush elastics like are used on bras!

    I think they are adorable and I love the scraptastic-ness of it. No need for a white liner. I used to wear tighty-whities, but now I have lots of cute prints. Yes, your undies look homemade, but I think that is GREAT!!! They look so comfy!!

    Thanks so much for that link. That is so helpful. No more excuses. I need to scrap bust and I’m pretty sure I have that PAB pattern already. I’ll practice on the kid first. I’m more and more interested in getting some of that elastic trim to dye too.
