As more and more people move to using mobile devices to browse the site and download files, I'm gradually trying to go back through some of my earlier patterns and give them an update. Recently, I just changed the Cheeky Panties pattern. It was originally hand drawn and in a ZIP file but now its digital and available as a PDF so it can be downloaded and printed more easily.
I printed out the new pattern to test and check it and thought, hmm, about time I updated my underwear drawer. That got me going back through my stash to make some more. I can't believe quite how much of the stretch lace I had. Originally when I developed the pattern I was intending to sew some for sale in my Etsy shop but then one project led to another and another and I just kept on making new things.
Anyway, its more fun to sew for yourself than to sew for someone else – or at least it is for me. So I have a LOT of stretch lace I bought to make up these undies and then never got around to it. My excess is your gain, because to celebrate the update of this pattern, I'm having a stash clear-out and will send the 2 lucky giveaway winners a big bundle of stretch lace suitable for making up this pattern – or anything else you want to make with it.
It's all clean, been unopened and stored away in plastic bags in a big box in my cupboard. So just print the pattern, cut the lace and sew and you can have new underwear in about 15 minutes I think! And SO much cheaper than you can buy in the shops.
