RUMS#7 - Unicorn Undies and a mini tutorial for gussets

Posted by Biohazard on Thursday, May 26. 2016 in RUMS und MMM

Today, I used the free time and made a new pair of underwear for me.

I chose the T-Shirt Underwear pattern from indigorchid - I had real trouble printing the file, but the pattern turned out pretty nice after my hubby helped me with the printing.

But - since I have sewn undies with other pattern - I decided to sew the gusset a little different, and I wanted to show you how I do that:

1. When I cut the gussets, I cut one without seam allowances on the long sides.

Inneres Zwickelteil ohne Nahtzugaben an den langen Seiten.
The inner gusset doesn't have seam allowances on the long sides.

2. While sewing the elastics, I'm careful not to sew the inner gusset to it.

Der Zwickel ist am Gummi festgenäht, das Innenteil ist noch unbefestigt.
The inner gusset is not sewn to the outer gusset and the elastic.

3. Now the elastic is folded over, and the edge of the inner gusset dissappears into the seam allowance of the outer gusset:

Inneren Zwickel in die Nahtzugabe schieben und feststecken.
Inner gusset edge disappears into the folded seam allowance.

4. I pin a lot of needles on this short way, so that the inner gusset can't shift while sewing.

Viele Stecknadeln setzen und absteppen.
A lot of pins while top-stitching the elastic.

5. Admire the result ;-) :

Fertiger Zwickel.
Finished gusset.

And this is how my new undies look like:

My husbands reaction: "Oh... it fits pretty good, and it has lace on it... but please - no unicorns on the next ones, ok?"

We'll see ^^

    Als würde es den Mann im "Notfall" interessieren, ob da nun Einhörner oder sonstiges drauf ist. Sieht super aus. Die Sache mit dem Zwickel ist schon ein wenig verflixt. Ich hatte "nur" zwei Schichten.

    Aber sieht süß aus! Und ich freue mich, dass wir endlich alle Interesse an Unterwäsche gewinnen.

    Liebe Ephrata,

    ich vermute auch, dass ihn die EInhörner im Zweifelsfall wenig interessieren werden ;-)
    Dennoch fand ich seine Reaktion lustig :D

    Vielen Dank für Eure Linkparty.

    Die Einhörner machen doch den Unterschied ;)

    Aber ich erinnere mich, dass die Stelle am Zwickel doch recht "dick" war. Kann ja dann mal deine Variante beim nächsten Mal probieren.

    LG Anja
