(Super soft and comfy!)
First up, find the materials. She suggested upcycling an old t-shirt, so I pulled one out of my donate bag and decided to try that. I still needed some super stretchy fabric, so I headed to Joann's and bought 4" of a spandex/cotton blend. Yes, you can buy only 4" of fabric! Don't worry, I also bought a yard of something else, so they wouldn't look at me in disgust when I only bought one little strip of fabric. ;) The accent fabric on these is just some cotton, so I dug into my stash and found some cute chevron fabric that mostly matched. I also had some clearance woven/stretchy white cotton I used for the lining that is too open for really anything else.
I made size 4 for my tiny almost 5 year old and they fit PERFECTLY. I convinced her to try them on, and her first comment was "You need to wash these so I can wear them tomorrow. Or can I wear them now?" Even now she's looking over my shoulder and asking if I'm writing about HER underwear. LOL!
I made the lower waistband version and they were a great fit, true to the measurements! Head over to her blog SergerPepper and there is a discount code good until Friday June 27th, so if you feel the need to make some quick and comfy undies, pick up the pattern!
