My proudest accomplishment (of the past month)
In the time I’ve been semi-absent from internetland, I’ve accomplished many things. I made it through three canyons in Utah and only left a little skin behind. I’ve sewed various shirts and such, and made progress on the endless Wonderwoman embroidery. And hey, I built my third computer! But nothing, thusfar, has made me prouder than this:
I sewed my own underwear, using a pair that fit well as a pattern. Now that, my friends? Is hardcore DIY in my book.
The hardest part of sewing my own underwear was finding the right elastic. I highly recommended Sew Sassy for all your special elastic needs- they’ve got lingerie elastic in all types and colors, as well as other exotic elastics- plush-backed, fold-over, etc.
You know you’re a sewing nerd when you get excited about “exotic elastics”.
Thongs, boyshorts, bikinis, oh my. It seemed like the “thing” back in my dorm days was a costly obsession with high-end underwear; this is a thing which I never understood. I always thought that Victoria’s Secret had to be how Ms. Victoria got people to pay so much money for so little fabric. My underwear collection has thus always been entirely functional.
I think I have to make up for that now.
So yes. Proudest accomplishment… so far. I had an interview for my ABSOLUTE AND UTTER dream job yesterday, however, so fingers crossed. I may top my handmade underwear yet this month!
