Ah yes… April. Spring… cleaning (sigh)… The drawers, the closets, the cupboards. As the weather starts to warm up and brighten, the trees start to bloom, and the daily chill departs for other parts of the globe, many of us get the itch to clean places that miss it throughout the winter, go through things we don’t use anymore, and organize our closets and drawers. Honestly, it actually feels good to organize, and go through things. But it can be a little daunting.
This year Kerrielee and I were talking, and we are both dying to make “panties.” I am not allowed to say that word around my youngest. For some reason she HATES it. I think panties sound much more feminine than underwear. Shall I call them unmentionables? I do rather like the term knickers though. But no matter what we call them we all NEED them.
And this year, for Spring, Kerrielee and I are going to make panties! LOTS of panties! So we can restock our drawers and our daughters’ drawers. Ooooops- I forgot THAT one- Drawers! 😀 Anyway, we bought pretty stretch lace, have been saving our soft knit scraps, bought elastic, all in preparation for April. When we plan on restocking our “drawers.”
We have several patterns all ready to go. The Amerson Pattern (designed by the lovely Madalynne) and the Rosy LadyShorts– (from Cloth Habit) Both offered free! And over at SozoWhatdoYouKnow you can find another great panty pattern and a cami tank. I actually made the tank last month to go under my costume and I LOVE it! The cut is so feminine and fitted. I will make more of them.
So, for the month of April, Kerrielee and I are having a “Panty Parade.” And we would love it if you would join us. Make one pair- or make a dozen! And keep us posted on your progress!
Let us know if you are IN… We are happy to have you join our parade. 😀
And feel free to take our button and add it to your blog! (It is the best I could do- I am a “Button Newbie.”)
Happy Spring! Happy April! And Happy Sewing– we hope you have a lot of great sewing planned for warmer weather!
