    I appreciate the tip about skipped stitches. For some reason that’s never occurred to me. These undies are lovely!

    I love the tie-dye, so cool to wear a bold pattern like that where most people won’t see it! Do you have any tips for finishing these undies on a standard machine only for those of us without sergers?

      Yes! Another option is to swap the serger for a zigzag, so both the first and second pass or made with a zig zag stitch. Does that make sense?

    This looks like an awesome post, but it’s so hard to read! (Now I feel bad, because that’s how about half of the spammy comments my blog gets start out, when they’re hawking substandard design) But I’m really curious why you chose to publish a post as a serious of images. When I’m not sewing, I’m coding for a living. I can show you how to do this layout without images.

      I’m sorry that it is hard to read! I make it a series of images because it makes the tutorial “pinnable” (I can post on Pinterest). Would love to know how to code it for my blog – will you shoot me an email to talk through it? Thanks!

    Love this, but I struggled to read it. Very poor font choice.

    Is there any way you can give more detail about the first step where you serge on the elastic and topstitch with zigzag? Ie- disengage knife, do I serge fabric on one side and then fold, flip and topstitch to the other? That’s the part I just can’t wrap my mind around because of how neat-looking it is.
