Tight underwear is like a smile…

Tight underwear is like a smile…

…it lifts your cheeks.

My latest batch of underwear is the cutest, but sadly, a bit tight. Because I, with my 6 years of sewing experience, completely disregarded the 70% stretch requirement of Jalie 2568. Underwear is small, can 50% stretch really be so different than 70%? Yes, the difference is slightly uncomfortably tight underwear.

I’m not getting discouraged. I happen to have a degree in mathematics, and I am using my impressive math skills to expand the Jalie pattern to accommodate 50% stretch fabrics. Wish me luck. Has anybody else successfully converted a pattern in this way?

Also, check out my Instagram feed @plaid_thursdays, though currently it doesn’t have much sewing, just vacation and decluttering pics.
