They are really quite easy to complete, though it took me some thinking to wrap my brain around how to attach the lace border. Like some of my other online knitters, I too used far less yarn than was called for.
As far as fit goes, I measure about 36 inches around my hips, but knitted the extra small size (33.5 inches at hips), so this is what it looks like with 2.5 inches or 7% negative ease. I wouldn’t have gone any smaller as it is pretty form fitting, but if you are considering what size for yourself, you’ll be able to see how they fit on me.
At first, I was a bit frightened by the sheer amount of lacey fringe on the bottom of the legs, but really it doesn’t look too bad in the pictures. Also these pictures were taken before the pants were washed, so the lace might relax and drape a little better after that.
Why underthings? I don’t really even know. They seem like they will be great loungewear and they go along with my quest to become throughly modern by swearing like a sailor and wearing underthings with *gasp* separate legs!
