How to sew the panties:
- I created a free video course for these patterns. You can watch it here: Sewing course – Panties.
- This pattern is suitable for intermediate seamstresses.
- Sewing is not difficult at all, just be careful not to deform the panties when sewing hems. A regular sewing machine will suffice for sewing. You can use an overlock, but it is not necessary.
- Thinner elastic materials – knits, sports knits, ponte knits (Ponte Roma, for example), elastic lace…
- The most suitable is a cotton knit with elastane. Cotton is perfect for this purpose and elastane ensures sufficient flexibility. Sports knits are best for “seamless” (“invisible”) variants, but they are synthetic materials. Ponte knits are also great for “seamless” panties. You can also use elastic lace, or any knit with elastane (try to choose lightweight materials). Merino is great and viscose & bamboo knits work too. Look for fabrics with elastane (or different elastic fiber). I recommend using tracksuit fabric or French Terry for warmer underwear (winter panties for children, for example). However, in the case of tracksuit fabric, the choice is difficult, because most of them are much more elastic along the grain then along the width, so that problems with the positioning of the pattern pieces can occur. Use swimsuit fabrics to sew ultra-thin underwear.
Required amount of material:
- 0,5 m (for 140 cm wide fabric)
There are two versions of this pattern:
(you will recieve both of them after purchase)
- 1st version (one size view) – PDF A4 – pattern in individual sizes with seam allowances outlined – all individual sizes of the pattern (pattern of each size shows sewing lines and seam allowances are outlined too).
- 2nd version (classic view) – PDF A4 pattern showing all sizes without seam allowances – all sizes are outlined “in one picture” (each in its own color) without seam allowances.
- You can choose what works best for you. The advantage of the classic view (where all the sizes are shown) is that you can easily customize your pattern to fit body types in between the chart sizes. One size view saves time during preparation – you do not have to think where and how much to add for the seams, because everything is already there.

After the payment has been credited to the account, I will immediately send the pattern with sewing instructions in PDF format to your e-mail address. Then you just need to print and assemble the pattern of desired size.

For best results, please read the following:
- The patterns are constructed in ready-made sizes, because it is not possible to construct a pattern for all body types (the size chart would get too congested).
- To make the clothes fit the individual figure perfectly, you need to carefully measure it first. Then compare measurements with size chart, and paper pattern. That is the only way to find best pattern size.
- In addition, it’s almost always necessary to adjust the pattern slightlyto make it fit perfectly. (Even if we have two women whose measurements are the same, they will differ in other ways – one of them may have a narrower back and a larger bust, the other may be more muscular with smaller bust. One of them may also have wider hips and flatter buttocks, the other may have narrower hips and rounder buttocks…) Patterns (and their sizes) are only rough guidelines. If you are going for perfect fit, you need to perform fitting tests and adjust the garments accordingly. Sewing is a creative activity and you need to take into account that each of us is built differently. THIS APPLIES TO CHILDREN’S AND MEN’S CLOTHES TOO – WE ARE ALL UNIQUE.
- If you are using some pattern for the first time, always sew “test sample” from a cheaper fabric first. Mark any adjustments in the paper pattern and then use it to sew the final product. It is a classic tailoring method. No two fabrics are the same, therefore, please note that what works with one fabric may not work with another. That is why you should always sew test samples. Sewing is not like baking, you can’t just pick the pattern and expect the perfect results without some measuring, testing and adjusting. That’s just how it works.
- I also recommend temporarily stitching all seams that affect circumferences (such as side seams, instep seams, etc.) before sewing. So, you can try the garment on and adjust it if necessary. Do not underestimate ironing and testing the clothes during the sewing process.
- Also don’t forget to carefully mark seam allowances. Beginners often forget about them. It is necessary to measure seam allowanceswith the measuring tape around the entire pattern and then sew along the correct sewing lines – seam allowances width away from the cutting edges. Careless work with the seam allowances can result in large deviations in the overall widths and lengths of the individual pieces.
- When positioning the paper pattern pieces always make sure that the pieces are oriented correctly.
