Maya Panties – Exhibit 2 and 3

It’s been a long, long, long time since I have written. But there was some sewing. Testing new Maya Panties. Version number 2 is a pair of red lace. Cheap lace which gets fluffy after 2 washes.

This kind of lace proved to be inappropriate since it only stretches in one direction. For the Maya panties, you need the fabric to stretch in all directions. But these are wearable and quite comfortable. Version number 3 is a pair of blue stretch cotton. These are GREAT!

Between version number 1 (made like a thousand years ago) and these, are some subtle changes to the pattern. Especially on the front. I have to say. The shape of these panties is not elegant. More of a sporty flavor. Easy and quick to sew. Great for day wear.

In fact, with version number 3, I feel the pattern is ready for testing. I did try to choose a bow for my everyday panties, but failed!

My cat assistant had a fluff cut while I was sewing these.
Meanwhile, I was working and designing my new website (this one you’re reading from right now). I’m very happy to keep in touch with my old readers! A big welcome to new ones!

  1. hallo, endlich eine webside gefunden mit einer anleitung für einen bh. ich freue mich schon auf dein mail mit dem schnittmuster und hoffe es ist auch meine große größe dabei 😉 95H oder 95i

  2. Hello and thanks for the intro to the new panty. My 1st impression was . . . hmmm a seam in the front as well as the back, and it looks as though it doesn’t have a crotch. Just seams to be continuous. Can’t wait to try these out. I just completed the Maya bra and I love it. Working on a couple of tweeks and will see how perfect I can get the fit. Really appreciate all you share.

    • Thank you, Jeanette. There is a crotch. I will show details, later 🙂 Very excited to see how it fits other bodies.

  3. Thanks for the introduction to the maya pattern. I will have to try it myself! I also like your cat’s haircut. I did that once to two of my Maine Coon boys, and they hated it. Does your cat like the cut? What kind of cat is it?

    • Hello, Marie! My cat is a mix of Persian and Siberian. Almost like a Main Coon, just smaller. Same fluff 🙂 She hates the procedure of cutting. But afterward, she’s very content. I could not believe it the first time we tried, she was running so happy it wasn’t hot for her anymore!

      • Ah, she’s half Siberian, a cousin to the Maine Coon with a similar coat, thus the lynx tips (the long hairs at the top of the ears).

        If you decide to release a pattern in a size 9 (American sizing), then I’d love to make a pair if you have a sew-a-long! I’ve made many bras, but would like to start making undies too.

      • Yeah, lynx tips 🙂 Yes, the panties pattern should cover size 9. And sewing instructions, like a sewalong will be provided 🙂 Thank you, Marie

  4. Thank you, Kalli. It feels good to be back 🙂 Yes, the crotch is lined. The lining method is a bit different from traditional method. I’m in the middle of taking photos and preparing for sewalong. As for the shape, people keep asking about the seam in the center front and center back. I had doubts as well when sewing the first pairs. But after wearing these, at some point, I realized the fit was better than any other I’ve made. This makes me eager to know how others will find the shape and fit.

  5. Hey
    Nice to read you again.
    This looks great. I think they are very comfortable?!
    In fact a different shape compared to the ones I use to sew. I would love to try. Do you habe some lining in the middle part?

    Ciao,

    Kalli
