I had some scraps of Liberty lawn left over – just enough to squeeze out a pair of Amerson Undies, using Madalynne’s free pattern. I first made some of these knickers back in February and they’ve been absolute corkers, especially in the summer when you want natural, breathable fabric next to your skin. I had to have another pair!
Every step of construction is fun, from zig zagging the heck out of brightly-coloured knicker elastic, to the all important choice of a button embellishment for the front.
Knicker elastic came from my vintage hat box stash of ribbons and elastic. Some people would say that a hat box full of such frippery is a waste of space and money. Who are these people? Just let them come here and say that!
This is a really fun project for using up scraps and getting me back in the sewing groove. I can now wear Big Ben on my bum!
