My underwear draw is looking very healthy and stocked with Muna and Broad Kapunda Undies. These high-waisted undies sit perfectly on me, and don’t move around during the day- they’re basically the underwear that I’ve wanted for years but could never buy.
In addition to making the usual scrap-busting undies from past knit projects (bamboo/spandex, cotton/spandex and merino leftovers), I’ve also been experimenting with using some fancier fabrics on the side panels of the pattern!
Shine Trimmings Fabrics in Aus is where I sourced all the fabric that you can see in these 2 pairs here. The blue blue lace I used (below), remains on sale at $9AUD per metre, and the blue fabric above is a lovely bamboo/spandex. The wine coloured cotton/spandex front and back (below) which would probably make great leggings (it’s quite opaque). They have lots of fabric that I really liked the look of, including this flocked geometric emerald fabric, (I used the black version) and this flocked polka dot mesh.
I’m planning on making some matching Banksia Bralettes to pair with these fancy pants. I’m hoping they’ll be fancy but comfortable enough for everyday wear!
I’m also interested in sourcing some hemp/spandex fabric to see how that works out as underwear, since hemp has a lot of the same great natural properties as merino.
