Alert the media! I sewed today

Around 2 p.m. on January 8, the worlds ugliest underwear were completed, and I have pictures to prove it. Notice how nicely I centered the circles, even the cream circles match front to back. I bet you are amazed at how meticulous I am at pattern matching. Nope. Complete fluke. No planning whatsoever.

See what I mean? I have no idea where this fabric came from, it is polyester in the worst sense, it seems to be 1970's vintage. It is really coarse, about the texture of 220 grit sandpaper (perfect for exfoliating your butt), the colours are unpleasant, but I didn't want to waste fabric if the panties didn't fit. Well they do, and they are completely unwearable (due to the sandpaper effect of the fabric) and are already in the garbage. The pattern is Kwik Sew 2908 and they are super easy to make. I know some people have commented on how boring it is to do assembly line sewing. Not me. I love it and  I have already have cut out and started sewing 4 more pairs.  I will probably never buy underwear again.


  1. Hi Elle!
    I found your blog by way go JillyBe's blog (JillyBeJoyful). I love your perfectly aligned 220 grit panties. Perhaps they would make a great gift for 'that special someone'? (oh how mean of me, but I still think it's a great idea).

    I love your subtitle to your blog, and I am feeling pretty much the same way. So nice to 'meet' you!

    1. I could always haul them out of the garbage and send them to you! Kidding. Thank you for coming for a visit.

  2. I just found you from lazysubcultural girl. I like sewing my own panties too. I'll still buy the odd package of cotton practical ones just because they aren't exciting, but for pretty lacy fun panties.. I want mine. I love the collection of 7 pairs.
