This April we’re back on track and all about the small things here at The Monthly Stitch. Panties, bras, bralettes, trunks, lingerie, shapewear–maybe even tights or socks! If you’re experienced at making your own underthings, maybe this is a chance to level up your skill set! Or maybe you’ve never tried making an undergarment. Let this be a kick in the pants (see what I did there?) to try it out!
We’re happy to announce that every blog contributor who posts their small thing make during the month of April will be entered into a drawing to win a free pattern from our sponsor, Emerald Erin.
