In this Instructable, you will learn how to turn a cheap pair of "tighty whities" (Or any other kind of briefs) into something a little more fashionable. I discovered this when I thought to myself, "How can I get good looking underwear for cheap. I tried looking up some DIY websites, but there were no results. Good looking underwear can be very expensive (20$+) for one pair. Luckily there is a way. They also get rid of the baggy factor in the back and add a very comfortable waist band.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Now all you need to do is go out and buy a pack of fresh underwear, you can use ones you've already worn but the fabric does stretch so it's best to use new undies. Just go out and buy a pack, they aren't expensive. So for this tutorial you need:
1. Fresh underwear (I'm using Merona Ultimate)
2. Sewing machine (Needle and thread wont turn out very even)
3. Sewing pins
4. Thread (Pick different colors to accent your undies)
Good Job! I thought your 'ible was well-written, and it gave me the inspiration to do my own lo-rise undies. They do look and feel better than the high-rise ones, but are indeed more expensive than "tighty-whities".The best stitch to use for sewing the waist-band is the zig-zag, as it has built-in stretch.
