I actually ponied up and bought fabric for these pairs (numbers 5 and 6) but don’t worry, it was during Stonemountain Fabric’s 20% off knits sale and I only needed half a yard. The pair in front has coyote and quail on it and is stretch cotton; the pair in back is brushed poly.
Things I’ve learned in Unofficial Undies Month:
- That pattern doesn’t lie when they say use fabric with at least 40% stretch both way. Some of my scrap pairs aren’t quite that stretchy on the cross grain and it makes a big difference in all-day comfort.
- The contrast bands are fun, but maybe a little too “kid’s Underoo.”
- The more you blog about your underwear, the more normal it seems.
