It's time to sew underwear - Seamwork Geneva, Megan Nielsen Acacia, and Simplicity 8229.

I’ve wanted to sew panties for a looooong time, and the day of underpants sewing finally has arrived!

I’m sewing three pairs of panties:

I’m treating these three pairs of underoos as muslins to pick a favorite. Then I want to make a bunch of one pattern. I’m making the underwear in the same fabric so I’m not swayed by fabric favoritism and to truly compare apples to apples.

In case you were wondering, I’ll definitely write a post about these three patterns when they’re done and I’ve worn them a few times. Because how can you judge the quality of an underpants pattern until you’ve lived in it for a day?

My favorite tools for cutting pattern pieces: rotary cutter and self-healing cutting mat! If I end up liking sewing undies and lingerie, I probably will invest in a small rotary cutter, too.
