About Up & Undies

Summer 2015, I wanted to duplicate my favorite pair of undies and used old T-shirts as practice fabric. It was so much fun to upycle shirts with awesome graphics, so I just kept on sewing. Each pair is one-of-a-kind, and nothing about the process is automated.

Treat them like your favorite tee, wash and dry on normal cycles. Sorry, no returns, but ask about alterations or making you a custom pair.


Want more Up & Undies fun? Throw a cheeky party! If you’re in the Seattle area, invite guests bring their own shirts and I’ll bring the scissors, patterns and measuring tape for custom-made pairs.

Join the upcycle revolution. Send me a bag of gently used clothes to be reimagined into fun new undies.


Up & Undies is a collection of handmade underwear sewn from locally sourced, upcycled T-shirts. Zero-waste, 100 percent fun. Women's undies range from hipsters and granny pants to French cut. I call the women's collection "crotch cradles." There are four different styles of men's undies: a jockey brief "banana hammock", the knitted short "twig and berry tamer", backless knit briefs and cute jock straps.
