This is a hanty

Okay, so it’s not a hanty. According to this web site, a hanty is a panty made from a hanky. For real. Anyway, I just love the word HANTY, so I had to find a way to work it in.

Okay, so I finally made some panties. I’ve been threatening to do it for years, and I have collected some necessary materials, but I just never got around to it. I discovered a style of PANTY I like, but they are kind of spendy, plus you can’t throw them in the dryer (what is up with that?), so I figured, hey, I should just make my own out of leftover knits! It sounds like a good plan, doesn’t it? Well, truth be told, additional work needs to be done on the fit. These turned out too small. I guess I am on the right track, but, well, I seem to be on the right track for a lot of things, but then I never quite get there. I shall not give up, though! After all, I have a lot of stretch lace to use up (I got a bunch of my stretch lace from Lace Heaven).

    That is awesome. There is something kind of hilarious about being able to say you made your own underwear.

    your jeans are too big and your hanties are too small. you seem to be sewing for a person whose size amorphs from day to day. :)

    would these fit if they were made entirely out of stretch lace vs. knits? that’s the style of my current favorite store-bought panties. (Hahahahaha, as if anyone ever thought there’d be a need to identify particular panties as “store-bought” versus others. hahahahahaha)

    desperately seeking low-rise stretch lace thongs that don’t cost an arm and a leg (since they barely cover anything, after all!), and have threatened to make them myself – how hard could it be? = )

    I have never seen a more professionally made hanty in my life. Seriously. Like those colors!
