Do you have a pair of underwear that you just love, but wish you could have a thong made of the same fabric? You can turn the underwear into a G-string and literally get your wish. Instead of messing with patterns and measurements, you can use a G-string that already fits as the basis for your custom creation. This alteration is pretty quick, so you can transform your entire underwear drawer in no time at all.
Place a G-string that fits you well over a regular pair of underwear.
Use a chalk liner to trace the G-string's outine onto the underwear, adding an extra quarter-inch to allow for a seam. Set the G-string aside.
Cut the underwear following the chalk lines. Discard the parts that you cut off.
Turn the underwear inside-out.
Fold a quarter-inch of material along the edges over. Use straight pins to hold these folded edges in place. Roll the narrow back piece into a thin roll like a shoelace.
Sew the folded edges in place, either by hand or with a sewing machine. Remove the pins as you sew.
The thin roll of fabric must be sewn together by hand, it is too small for a sewing machine. Use small, looping stitches to keep the fabric in a tight roll.
Turn the new G-string rightside-out.
