Undies Pattern

Recommendations?

I'd like something where I don't have to use elastic. I've seen undies where the fabric us used on the leg/waist in place of elastic. Something that fits toddler to little girls.

Re: Undies Pattern

I think Fishsticks has one called Little Fishies? It does call for 1" non roll elastic in the waist. You could totally use Ribbing (not rib knit, which I hear some use w/o encased elastic, but it never would stay up on DS' hips for us). Ribbing is what is used on jacket cuffs.

Re: Undies Pattern

I second fishsticks patterns, the instructions are great too. The only place you use elastic is on the waistband and it's completely encased in knit.

This looks like it could easily be converted to undies, plus it's free! I love free.

Yup! I'm planning on making the cuffs a little thinner.
