Did you think the Maya bra would go without a matching panties pattern? Before the article, a quick notice, again.
And now, onto the subject. I know there are a lot of panties patterns already. But I just feel I have to have my own pattern! Besides, the pattern is planned for several heights and not just small-medium-large-xlarge. And I really wanted to test some of the drafting techniques.
I had all the designs run through my head. In the end, I decided, since the bra is a classic shape, to let the panties be a simple shape too. I want a comfortable day-wear pair. This will be a FREE pattern, of course!
This one was the first try on the pattern. It features center front and back seams. No side seams. And … a wide crotch. One thing I can’t seem to wear is narrow crotches. They tend to reach some uncomfortable places, you know…
I really wish I had a mannequin to dress on and show you the true shape. Not having it makes me state:
- I love the back
- I thought the height is … too high, but it’s not, I’m keeping it
- I do not like the front. I need to cut it a little bit
- The crotch is OK, except it’s too long, not wide.
As you can see, there are some modifications I have to make. Until I’m not satisfied with the shape on me, I cannot give it to testing. But here’s a question for you: would you be interested in sewing a similar pair?
