Here’s a great tutorial for turning those old teeshirts we all have laying about into something new and fun!
Trace the outline of the panties onto the parchment paper, leaving room for seam allowances. This pair is the “boyshort” style, so it has seams in the front and back. For this style you need two front halves, two backs, and two layers for the center panel.
sew your side seams, then trim if you aren’t using a serger. (I’m using a serger stitch on a regular sewing machine. You can also use a zig zag stitch, but be careful not to pull the fabric thru the presser foot or it will bunch up in the finished product.)
After the panel is in place, run a stretch zigzag stitch around the leg openings. T-shirt fabric does not fray, but I think this makes the finished product look better, and keep it’s shape longer.
