Light weight Cotton knits for undergarme

Monkey1961 | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

Does anyone know a good source for the lightweight cotton knit fabric used for undergarments?  Everything I find local is too heavy.  Hopefully a source with a website or mail order.


Thank You!

    I have in stock lightweight white 100% cotton knit which is usually used for underwear. Sent me an e-mail with your mailing address and I will send you a sample (I do not have a web site, but do mail order).

    This may sound silly, but xxl t-shirts from our local drugstore are $3. each and offer nearly a yard of wonderfully light knit fabric!  I just cut off the sleeves and along one side seam and have enough to make a smaller shirt, cami, or panties.

    At an outlet store, you can sometimes get 3 XXL t-shirts for $4.99....

      Your tip doesn't sound silly to me. I've shopped thrift shops, dollar stores, and anywhere else garments or anything else made of fabric is found. When our parents were in college and money was really tight, my grandmother would use the shirttails of wornout men's shirts to make children's shirts--I have worn them. By the way, I've been hunting for some really soft knit for my husband's sleepwear; I plan to use your hint. Galey

      Wow, great idea.  I would never have thought of that, and it's exactly the right answer for what I've been looking for!!  Thanks :)
