#getsetsewseptember - Underwear
We're sew excited about this month's #getsetsew challenge theme, it's one we've been thinking of doing for sometime now and one of the things we love it is how versatile it is with endless options for skills, style and pattern!
Yes it time to show us your underwear, well, your underwear makes this month.
What are your first thoughts on thinking about this challenge? Is it something like 'I cant make a bra!', 'This is complicated', or something along the lines of 'I've never used lace / stretch fabrics / knicker elastic'. Or your mind may already have moved on the the myriad of options available form, bras, bralettes, sports bras, vests, camisoles, though to knickers, boxer shorts, men's pants, children's pants, and within all of these options are so many pattern choices and different styles to chose from. And better still if you already sew with stretch fabrics this can be a great scrap buster.

If you're on instagram and looking for inspiration I thoroughly recommend you give Emerald Erin a follow ( she also has an Etsy shop ) as her Jordy Bralette is going to be one of our makes for this month! Also @MMadalynne - some wonderful things and a shop too!
Don't forget I have a half price offer on my Sewing Special Elastics course that covers elastics that are often used for making underwear. This course is also a FREE module in my Sewing Stretch Fabrics course.
