It's time to sew along with DeWahn! DeWahn, who is in her 50s, is active in her career and her community. She's been making lingerie for years, and always makes a matching set. For this set, she fell in love with our Savanna print and based her undies on style and flair without sacrificing comfort. DeWahn is making a riff on the Maris undies from Madalynne Intimates. She loves the contemporary styling, but she likes a bit more coverage so she adapted the thong to have a nice, high leg but a full back. She'll teach you how! She's using mixed materials, with the front panel in a print and the sides and back in our lovely Microlycra Air (or your choice of Microlycra or Stretch Mesh if you prefer). She'll also show you how to do this fun lace applique to add a bit more personality.
We've sourced all sorts of wonderful fabrics, colors and laces for the Bee, and this is your opportunity to make some matching sets. We are offering our undie kits in 2 sizes, Larger and Smaller. Typically, our Smaller kit works easily for women up to a size Large, and the Larger kit can do any size. Many gals who are smaller in size purchase our Larger kits and get multiple pairs of undies to go with their bra. I wear a size XL and I can get 3 pairs of briefs from a Larger kit. Women who are a smaller size can often get 2-3 pairs of undies from a Smaller, depending on style. Some undies are very tiny! You can also upgrade to include matching thread, additional elastics, an absorbent crotch or extra cotton jersey (useful for making more pairs of undies).
