What I Made: Not So Basic Black Frankie Panties

Evie la Luve Frankie Panties in Black Mesh Lace Trim Handmade Underwear DIY Sewing

Hi guys! I’m back today with…*drum rolls*

More underwear! Apparently it’s the year of the underwear for me.

At this point, I’ve sewn enough bras for myself that I can go without doing laundry for a month and I would still have clean bras to wear. (Not that I’m suggesting that you don’t do laundry for a month). This year, I’ve pretty much decided to stop buying underwear and overhaul my panties drawer by making my own.

I figured that I need more black panties (seriously everyone always needs more black panties–they are great basics!), so I whipped up two pairs of Frankie Panties using the new black stretch mesh from my shop.

Black/Lavender Frankie Panties in Style #6

For this pair of Frankie Panties, I opted to use black stretch mesh and paired it with contrast lavender narrow stretch lace trim. I used a black scallop lace for the back part of the panties and took care to mirror the lace. I then finished the waist with contrast lavender foldover elastic.

Adding a contrast color is a great way to jazz up a pair of basic black panties!

If you are feeling a little more ambitious, you can try using more than one contrast color! For this pair of Frankie Panties, I used black stretch mesh again and paired it with mint narrow stretch lace trim. For the back, I used a black/pink lace and I finished the waist with a light blue fold over elastic.
