You may have to work in sections if the whole front wont lie flat at once.

Over the last three or four years, I have been slowly converting my wardrobe to entirely self-made clothing. When I originally undertook this somewhat ambitious endeavor, I assumed there would always be a few categories that would remain exceptions to my "rule," like, for example, jeans, coats, and underwear. But little by little I am coming around to the idea that no garment should be excluded from my quest. I've tackled jeans (well, OK, they're corduroys), it's not the right season for coats, but underthings seemed like the next challenge whose time had come. So I grabbed a pair that fits well, an old partial T, and some quarter-inch elastic, and here's what I did:

1. Cut out the pieces. Fold your underwear in half along the center front, carefully lining up the side seams and leg openings. Lay it on top of the folded T-shirt, aligning the folds.

  Lay the underwear on top of the shirt to use as a pattern reference.

Try to get the whole front piece to lie flat, but you may only be able to work with one section at a time. Cut around the edges, adding 1/4-inch seam allowance as you go. Only cut around the parts that lie flat, then flatten the rest and finish cutting.

  You may have to work in sections if the whole front won't lie flat at once.
