I bought some lovely red lace from Bravo Bella a few months ago, (which appears to be sold out now.) I wanted to make up a pair of lace panties just to see how they would look and get a feel for working with lace fabric.
At first, I attempted to sew the legs with clear elastic. Hello, that was a mistake. Talk about being eaten by your sewing machine! Yikes!
Quick research and scour of my stash revealed a sweet tomato red lingerie elastic from Kathy (Fr8rain). Whew! It matches. I'm rescued.
From the back, they look super fun, just like my sketch. Only to be revealed to a special someone... ;)
Aren't they sweet?
