Readers, it's one thing to be defeated by a men's tailored suit jacket, but Y-front underwear? No way!
Maybe it's a male thing, or a Taurus thing, or a me thing, but I had to give these briefs another go. This time I used remnants from my Jalie underwear project from -- when was that again? It feels like months.
Meanwhile, it is SO hot here it's not even funny. Even the dogs are tuckered out.
I used the red stripe knit for the body of the briefs and the gray solid for all the trim.
I cut the crotch panels on the bias just for fun.
This time around I was much more careful attaching my elastic to my leg binding first, and only then attaching the binding to the briefs. I have most success stitching (and topstitching) with a narrow zigzag -- so narrow in fact that I can still use my straight stitch foot, which provides the best visibility.
Given the heat, I consider this is a complete outfit. Handy!
Friends, I think it is time for me to take a nap in my crate.
