Girls undies

Post by Tentacles » Wed Jan 09, 2013 9:57 am

I need to think about making some undies for DD since she is making noises about TT. Itried to be lazy and buy some but couldn't find anything I liked in the shops, are girls undies really narrow through the crotch compared to boys or is that my imagination?
Anyway hit me with your fav undies patterns for 2yo girls. I want them to be wide enough through the crotch to make some as training undies as well. I think I have an old KnitWit pattern somewhere but need to dig it out and see if it goes small enough.

There is an ottobre pattern that starts in a 86cm that is a great one for 2 year olds. I'll have a look what issue it is.. it's an old one from memory.
I made a good one up but absolutely NO idea where I put it :oops: :oops: :oops:

Thanks Claire, I didn't think to check my older Otto's will do that tonight too. M is about an 86 now so that size sounds perfect.

mummyzilla.blogspot.co.nz/2012/06/blog-post.html this is my tutorial, I've also done it with underwear elastic, although I used another pair of undies as a guide, so may not be that helpful.

The sets of 6 from dollar shops aren't too bad for inserting gussets.
Happy to send you the gusset pattern for making inserts for those ones if u want.

Can get them anywhere from $7 to about $12 a set, depending on where you shop.
Papakura $2 shops had them for less than $10 per pack last year.

Oh really I didn't think to try the dollar shop type places. Maybe it's just that the shape is so different between wee boy and girl undies, I dunno but none of the ones I saw looked comfy.
And the gusset pattern would be great if that's ok. I bought some of yours for DS when he was TTing but stupidly passed them on.

I prefer homemade ones too - I am keen to make some similar to the darn kat pattern ones ( with stretchy bands) . With 4 girls its a nightmare working out who's knickers are who's so I'd make each size a different colour.

They all have the $2 shop ones at the moment and they aren't too bad comfort wise. Do check all six undies in the pack before you buy as sometimes the sizing varies a lot!

Pm me your address Alison and Ill send you a gusset pattern- will just save fiddling to make one the right size :)

That darn kat pattern is brilliant, http://www.etsy.com/listing/37858030/ch ... attern-pdf

I have made many dozens over the last five years or so. Have just now started buying them, but Melissa still outs on her old hand made ones in preference to the bought ones.

We love this pattern too, must go make more as both my girls have the problem of one butt cheek hanging out of there brought nickers and its so not a good look :twitch: :lol:

Shortly would your gusset pattern fix this, do you think??

Kickers from the US (Fruit of the Loom but most brands in general are similar) are not nearly as brief and little girls undies here. I don't really understand it.

Margaret - the gusset pattern is basically a sew in waterproof absorbent pad that is shaped to fit the undies. So wont fix the problem with undies fit. Have you tried the $2 shop ones ( they have my little pony, Dora, Disney princess print on the front). I don't find these too bad for fit.
