Free Pattern. Amerson Undies by Madylnne; designed to be made in wovens. They are full, do not sit tight like knits, and can be worn under loose clothing. Cute Amersons and Pattern link: http://www.madalynne.com/amerson-the-.details-pattern www.madalynne.com/uploads/2013/02/AMERSON-UNDIE1.pdf
|Elastic on the inside.|
|Lace on the edge.|
*Old Turquoise Shirt: Print FREE PDF and create pattern. Due to limited fabric in the shirt the Undies required some piecing.
*Lace/ Elastic: Amersons pattern shows elastic outside.
I used thin white inside.
What I Learned: Even Amersons take a bit of fabric. Use larger garments for less piecing of Undies. The pattern is graded and elastic helps control sizing.
Be sure to read up on how to mark and space elastic prior to stitching.
|Before: Turquoise shirt |
from end of summer closet cleaning.
|Pattern: Printed from FREE PDF.|
Traced onto old pillowcase.
