Let me tell you about my underclothes

Lately I've been into wearing pantelettes (not in a polygamist sort of way, but to keep warm).   Not only do they make me feel secretly cute & young, they make the Wisconsin winters more bearable while wearing a dress!  Not to mention you don't have to worry about being so dam lady like all of the time.  If I find myself sitting cross legged on a bar stool I'm not exactly showing off my business, if you know what I mean.  I wear them high on my waist while i'm at work so they don't peek out.  I'm not sure that it would matter, but I get enough funny looks as it is.

I'm not really a prairie dress sort of girl, but if it feels comfy, is made from natural fabrics, is somewhat flattering and doesn't make me itch, I'm pretty much game for anything.

I use to have a simply lovely prairie dress (circa 1970's) that I wore thin during the summer months.   I stopped wearing it because the boyfriend I had at the time (and his friends) gave me shit for it constantly.  Why the hell did I listen to them?  Further more why the hell were they all so concerned about what I had on my back?  People don't make any sense sometimes.  And that guy was dumb anyway.  Two words:  Parliament cigarettes.  That's all I have to say about him.

Back to the subject at hand.  I've started cranking out my own line of these lovely "unmentionables" so stay tuned.  Just out of muslin, scrap & cheap lace for now.  My goal is to someday get my hands on some Belgium linen for a decent price.  Is it pathetic that I scour the discount section at Restoration Hardware just to find some sheets to rip up and turn into underwear?

here they are with my paw print dress.  Found the pattern online for free.  The top is too tight and needs to be fixed. (I'll have to take the liner out-dam!).  The muslin fit perfectly, but the finished product doesn't let me breathe.
