They do. There are lots of underwear patterns around and Susan of measuretwicescutonce blog has come up with a series of knicker patterns for wovens and knit fabrics.
She's a local star really.
I attempted to make the knit knickers - The Mary Knickers. All of these patterns come with a design manual. You get to be your own designer with these patterns.
DH had a good chuckle when he saw my first attempt. So I've got a lot of learning to do and maybe I need to work on my design skills a lot more.
These drawings were my first pattern alterations. The green marking is where I've traced the side leg on the knickers I already own, as a comparison.
So I tried again.
Used a basic beige to test out my alterations. This fabric is much easier on the eyes:)
Finished the gusset edges
Use the coverstitching for the leg edge.
Then it was time to attempt the pink/fushia version.
This time I used the leg shaping and added elastic at the leg edge.
And that's a wrap for now.
Thanks Susan for developing these patterns. They're all so cute and Susan's knowledge of all things sewing blows me away everytime we meet.
Dear Susan, Please make a series of bra patterns. That's another skill I want to develop in a class environment this time.Take care.
