Thanks for the tutorials. It is frustrating to see 5-7 pair of underwear for $25 or $45 for a bra considering how little fabric it takes to make and where they are made. I have both a serger and cover stitch machines. Both would be a plus in this application. The hard part is finding suitable fabrics. Any suggestions on where to get underwear cotton?

Thanks for sharing an amazing post! I recently wrote a post on how to sew fold over elastic if you're interested in adding to this https// == s/how-to-sew-foldover-elastic-new-lingerie-lookboo == k.

sewing is an awesome thing, though so sometimes it is easier to shop online, for this occasions I use this store http//
