I saw Hanna Andersson's unders have flatlock seams but at 2 for $28, I just can't afford them.
On a sidenote, I can sew some basic stuff so perhaps someone knows of an EASY pattern for panties.
Consider the fabric, it will have to be super comfy stretchy. They have stretchy cotton in the swinwear section of fabric stores. Alternatively you may want to order specialty stuff online.
Consider the elastic, too. You might have to find a specialty fabric store or order it online. They have plain, soft foldover elastic (FOE) if you think it won't bother her, or you could simply use a casing to keep that elastic covered.

Also my dd prefers her gerber trainers to her "big girl panties" because they dont have those seams and dont have elastic that digs into her legs or waist. Im not sure though if the padded crotch would bother your lo.

Wearing underwear was what stopped my sensory son from wanting to potty train at three. These totally did the trick, and have lasted forever. I could pass them down to my daughter they held up so well.
They are not so thick as to really seem like the typical training pant.
I still let her have the option. These days she almost always chooses to wear the undies. But the pants will get washed after one day's use anyway, so I don't see the real need for undies if she doesn't want to wear them.
I also let her be naked at home as often as she wants, which is usually at least a few hours a day. I also see no reason to make her wear clothes when we're home since they tend to get on her nerves after being in them most of the day.
That seems to be a somewhat radical solution based on the PPs' replies, but it's just what made sense to me and worked for us collectively.
