Boxers or Sleep Shorts or Sleep Panties:
*Made from Pre-retirement stash that does not fit the Retirement lifestyle.
*Fit the need for more at-home lounge clothes. Retirement has some benefits!!!
|Amerson Panties: In heavier cotton. Made for sleep|
After: Heavier weight cotton sleep panties to wear with t-shirts or night-gown.
Free Pattern. Amerson panties by Madylnne. Several people have cute Amersons posted on line.
In lighter weight they can be worn under loose clothing.
Go to the link to see how cute these can be.
*Old Red Shirt: Piece and cut Amersons. My shirt fit me so the panties were tricky to cut and required some piecing.
*Lace/ Elastic: Amersons pattern shows elastic on the outside. I used thin white on the inside.
What I Learned: Even Amersons take a bit of fabric. Use larger garments for less piecing. The pattern is graded and the elastic also helps to control the sizing.
Be sure to read up on how to mark and space elastic prior to stitching.
