Please note that the Etsy downloadable version contains instructions for extra sizing to fit up to a 33” waist, not offered previously in the Knitty version.
Description from Knitty.com:
Betty is a throwback to an earlier time when bare legs were a no-no and pantyhose was just a dream. Pulling a look together meant the proper foundation garment that would keep everything in place. A peek at such a garment on a beautiful lady was the height of sexy!
My newer version of the old waist cincher/garter belt/ panty features stretchy yarn, delicate feminine trim and a thong panty to add spice.
A wide hidden band of elastic at the waist helps sweater girls keep their hourglass shape.
Kit with hardware and elasticized yarn available at
