I swear, I'm never ever buying panties again now that I have Simplicity 8229. This pattern is on its way to being a go-to item for knicker-making.
This latest pair is made in a lace stretch fabric and the elastic used at the legs has a pleated edge. They're my fancy pant[ie]s!
The lace fabric, pleated elastic and the beige cotton used for the crotch lining were all Fabricland finds. The waistband was finished with beige picot elastic that I found at Northwest Fabrics. I wish I picked up more of the beige picot elastic when I had the chance. Oh well. I picked up plenty of the pleated elastic and have enough green lace to make another pair.
