I'm sure she will love it and it will more than likely fit perfect.

Ah! Ha! THE famous Pittsburgh undies!! Is "Silk Weight Powder Dry" difficult to sew? What type of needle did you use? Stretchy, knit lace? Questions, questions, eh! But, I'M in Canada--colder still!!

Very good of you to make sure she has something that'll really make a difference.. In fact, for the next set, may I suggest short sleeves? Covering up the armpits does make a difference. Although my East Coast experience was that it was always good to have warm pants and long johns, but that it was best to be able to strip to a very light layer on top. The outdoors need all the help you can get, the indoors are often stifling. Much easier to take off a sweater or two than a pair of pants :-). Anyway, these look good, and power dry is an excellent fabric choice. If she's short however, you might want to take some inseam length off for a better fit rather than just shorten the legs?

This set turned out beautifully! Thank you for showing the lace application closeup, that helped me a lot! I really like the neckline finish. Very nice and comfy!!

I used a ballpoint jersey size 12 needle and stretch lace. I shortened on the lengthen/shorten line for the sleeves and pants rather than wacking off at the bottom! I'm trying to make 2-3 tops for each pair of pants. Depends on how much fabric I have - short sleeve one sounds like a good idea. Thanks for the nice comments.

I've never felt powerdry but I've heard good descriptions of it and this the first review of anything made in it that I've seen. It looks so comfy. Now I'm wishing I was in your family so I could have some made for me. (hehe) Anyway, great job and I love the lace!

These are BEAUTIFUL, and you can't find CuddleDuds in this color either (at least I never have). I especially appreciate having the fabric info. I didn't know this type of fabric was available. I may just make myself some CuddleDuds one of these days. They're always too short for me after they shrink. I'm bookmarking your review. Beautiful!

Such a pretty color, and your finishes are great! These will make such a difference for your DIL.

Very pretty. I love the shell finish on the neckline and the lace on the sleeves. I have some powder dry and haven't really known what to do with it. Thanks for helping me learn some what to do with it. Although, any more, it seems like we have about five really cold days here.

Very nice & as you said, a big savings. DIL will love having them....we do get some very cold weather sometimes here in PA. ;-)

Very nice underwear. I have this pattern on my wishlist. Maybe after the holidays, I'll give them a try.

Well, I can't wait for your daughter-in-law to get these. COME ON, Christmas! :o) I especially like the green waffle weave top. These longjohns are not only functional, but pretty, as well. :o)

We knew it'd be a succcess :-). Next time, try powerstretch windpro - it's thinner, stretchier, excellent for winter running wear (cyling, skiiing, you name it). Mine goes down to -20o :-). Also from Malden Mills.
