#28 Back to School Wardrobe: Long Undies Ready for Winter

My self-challenge is PROJECT: Back to Elementary School Wardrobe
Project Goal #1: Re-fashion 10 per month starting  when I returned to teaching in August. This is #28 so I am behind.   
Project: Goal #2: Shop from the closet. I have not bought new / used clothing since August when I started this project.

BEFORE: Small silky long undies were in the wardrobe stash.
Stash lace was gummy from the elastic aging. It is very soft and perfect for this project.

PROBLEM: Long undies from the stash are too small. My school is cold and drafty. AND I am not shopping this school year. I must rescue these undies.

STEPS: Pull the thread link to open the seams. Insert and topstitch lace panels 

AFTER: Lacy long undies. I need to rescue enough long undies from the stash to last all week.  I love undies under pants for school and under sweats at home.  
AFTER: Made larger with lace inset,

AFTER: With lace inset.

I love this idea! I hate being cold and I am always layer upon layer in the winter. Smart save for these thermals.
