Everyone Deserves Pretty Knickers week – stash busting

By Susan | June 3, 2015


Every so often I get all excited about making pretty knickers and want to run out and buy heaps of new fabrics. However one the reasons I started sewing my own knickers was to stash bust.

Woven knickers are lovely to wear, breatheable, great for the summer time and while not as smooth as knit fabrics they are undeniably sweet and very comfortable. So as part of Everyone Deserves Pretty Knickers week I have gone through the stash, picked out some pretty lawns and soft cottons and cut out some styles.

I’ve chosen The Georgiana Knickers which I like as a cute bikini style and The Jane Knickers a great sleep short for the summer.


Each night I’m going to sew a little bit and hopefully by the end of the week I’ve reduced the fabric stash and have pretty knickers!
If you like the idea of stash busting and some lovely to wear woven knickers you can follow the sewalongs from the first Everyone Deserves Pretty Knickers week. I’ll be posting my progress on instagram and don’t forget to use the #everyonedeservesprettyknickers hashtag if you are making your own pretty knickers this week!
