Out With The Old, In With The New I Spring Clean Your Undie DrawerApril 20, 2017 / bymaddie / Categories : Feeds
I am reminding myself of my mother today when she would tell me to wash my face and brush my teeth every night. Thanks ma! Because of her nightly reminders, I have a pretty decent complexion and half pearly whites as I creep up to 30-years-old. Yikes!
So spring has sprung. That’s right y’all, time to refresh. While I am not here to tell you to wash your face or brush your teeth tonight, I am here to to remind you that your undie drawer may need some serious updating. Tis the season! Many think the daunting task of spring cleaning just involves garages, categorizing cabinets, and so forth, but do not ignore your most beloved items. I’m sure your undies need some TLC right about now.
This type of spring cleaning doesn’t have to take hours. Literally, five minutes is all you need. Next time you are fishing inside your underwear drawer in the morning, review what’s inside and think about these three things.
1. Out with the old! There is no excuse to have old, unsightly panties taking up space in your drawer. Anything less than flattering or just plan uncomfortable, get rid of it.
2. Variety? Do you have different silhouettes? Classic bikinis to wear under dresses and skirts?, Thongs for tight pants and jeans? Boyshorts to pair with an oversized tee and hang around the house? Take note of what you have and don’t have.
3. Color love! Along with your basics of white, beige and black, do you have fun pieces? Pinks, purples, blues, yellows and greens?
4. In with the new! Now that you’ve dwindled your undie drawer, time to stock up. You don’t have to spend a fortune buying or hours making your own. Newsflash! I have 2 and 3 panty packs available as well as a panty pattern, kit and tutorial.

Welcome back to day 2 of the Lodo Dress Sewalong. I am excited to get sewing. Today we are going to be tackling the back seam, back slit for View A and sewing up the shoulder seams. Super easy. Let’s get started. Step 1 – (This Step is for View A Only. View B starts at Step 3 so go ahead and skip on down to Step 3 if you are sewing the shorter version without a back slit.) Remember that all seam allowances are 3/8″ unless otherwise stated in the instructions. If you want to finish the seams with a serger you will want to do that now. You can serge each back seam independently before sewing them together. Since knits do not fray this is not necessary. I am going to opt out on serging View A (but will serge View B so that you can see both). You will be sewing this step using a stretch stitch. If your machine has a stretch stitch it will look something like a lightning bolt. No. 9 on my machine. If you don’t have one of those stitches on your machine you can also use a zigzag stitch and just […]read more
It’s always so mysterious how a pretty little skein will work up, isn’t it? Especially with variegated yarn! I dyed up a little (well, BIG) skein and made swatches in knitting, crocheting and weaving! And they’re SO different! Here’s the skein I dyed (if you want to try it, check my tutorial on how to […]read more
