Whole Lotta Rosy

To borrow a song title from AC/DC, I've been working on a Whole Lotta Rosy this weekend. Rosy Ladyshorts that is. I needed something quick and satisfying after spending so much time on my Thurlows.

Rosy Ladyshorts Detail

If you haven't already, I highly recommend downloading this pattern from Cloth Habit. For me, the fit is amazing and I'm able to quickly whip up something that would rival any store bought pair of underwear in a very short period of time.

These are also a great way to use up extra stretch lace and trim. Everything except the magenta trim was scored on a trip to the Textile Discount Warehouse. The magenta trim came home with me from Vogue Fabrics when I went to purchase denim for my Thurlow wearable muslin. I can't remember if I purchased one or two yards of each stretch lace, but a little goes a long way. I believe that this is my third black pair and third and forth purple pairs, with some left over for at least one more. 

This was just a nice project to reset my sewing mojo and get me in the mood to tackle a more complex project again.


  1. Get outta my head, LOL! I'm on vacation right now, but before I left, I cut out five pairs of these to sew up when I get back!

  2. I just downloaded these to try! Problem is, I don't have any stash stretch lace or trim, so I'm going to have to do a little shopping! Love yours!

    1. Thanks :) I've actually wanted to try making a pair with cotton jersey and was contemplating jersey bands instead of lace trim. It's no substitute for an excuse to go fabric shopping, but it might be another option.
