Undies testers wanted - 80-116cm

Post by Darny » Mon Apr 18, 2011 3:06 pm

I only need 4 testers, and I would like people who A/ know how to sew up undies with a crotch piece as my instructions are VERY basic and
B/ have a child who is difficult to buy undies for - they ride up/ cut in etc I have tested the 92cm and 110cm sizes but happy to have a second tester in those sizes if you fit the other criteria.

I have tested these on my kids, BUT as a warning, I'm still tweaking the waist and leg casing size, so they may be too loose or tight.

Main part can use any cotton knit WITH stretch
bindings MUST be cotton lycra or fabric with a similar two way stretch.

Please post your interest and I'll PM those who fit the bill.

Due to the design they are more girls undies than boys (crotch doubled rather than full front doubled) but have made them for A and he declared them "much more comfortable than my other ones Mum - his other ones being bought ones) So ok if you don't mind that style on a boy - I am working on adjusting the pattern to make a double front style with the same basic shape if you want to wait and test that one instead.

I would be keen, I have made heaps of the 'That Darn Kat' pattern, in fact it is all my oldest wears.

My dd's are 114 and 119cm tall, but only 4 and 5.

These sew up differently to that darn kat ones - so if you don't know how to do the two piece crotch then my pattern might trip you up (due to no pictures to explain it) if you still feel confident then PM me your email address Kylie and RachaelD

I am familiar with the crotch piece (hidden seams I presume?). Or at least the Ottobre ones I've made have hidden seaming in the crotch.

I'd be happy to test for any of my kids - all of them need more undies!

James 5 y approx 105 cm
Emily 6.5 y approx 110 cm

Could those testing these please try washing them and retesting - before washing the waist was a few cm's too large on A, after washing it had shrunk back to the right size and seems to be staying that way while being worn, so based on information I was given by an underwear maker the waistband measurement should be correct but the process of turning over and top stitching down temporarily stretches the fabric out of shape, and washing brings it back again .....
(Yes I'm using pre washed fabric so not just shrinkage factor) 8-[

Boys ones now ready for testing, again only need about 4 people.
No instructions included on pattern so will email basic written instructions but will suit someone who can already sew up hidden seam girl style - boys style is double front with all hidden seams.

Awesome, have emailed the pattern now - basic instructions included on pattern (forgot the bindings so had to add them anyway) if you can't understand the instructions let me know and I'll take photos of the next pair I make A :D
