Tutorial Tuesday :: How to Sew Underwear with FREE Pattern from Melly Sews

If you're looking for the perfect use for all of your knit fabric scraps and small pieces, look no further than this How to Sew Underwear Tutorial from Melissa of Melly Sews! Included is a FREE sewing pattern that ranges in sizes from XXS-3X, which pairs perfectly with an easy to follow video tutorial, where Melissa is shown wearing her handmade BOLT by Girl Charlee t-shirt (this floral design is out of stock, but you can shop remaining BOLT fabrics today at Girl Charlee). Click here for the entire tutorial and happy sewing!

Depending on the type of elastic that you want to use, Melissa demonstrates three different sewing techniques for finishing your neck and leg bands.

To sew your own underwear you'll need a stretch knit fabric with good recovery like Cotton Jersey, Cotton Lycra, and Lycra Spandex. Because each pair requires minimal yardage, I recommend starting your search with our 1/4 Yard Mystery Mix Lots along with our precut Half Yards. A few of my picks from the store:
We hope you enjoy this tutorial! We love to see what you sew up so please send 1-2 images* of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to gcblog@girlcharlee.com and you might see your creation featured in our next Knit Picks!

Happy Sewing!
