Can I first say how much I hate the word "panties?" I always grew up calling the aforementioned undergarments "underwear" and there's just something about the word "panties" that sends a shiver down my spine and makes me go "blech." I was discussing this with my neighbor a couple weeks ago and she kindly pointed out that this is purely a personal problem on my part and the rest of the world does not seem to have this issue. In any case, I've decided that as all good mothers do, I will be passing on my neurotic tendencies to my child and said undergarments shall be referred to as underwear in our house. So there.
That said, I came across this pattern for children's underwear a couple months ago and was immediately in love. Is it weird to want to sew children's underwear? (Is it any weirder than having an aversion to the word "panties?")
In any case, weirdness be damned, this is going to be my next project. I've purchased the pattern, I just received a bunch of fabric in the mail, and I'm building up my courage to sew with knits once again. It's on!
