It's the all-in-one panties pattern! This is an informative pattern where you can start with the basics and then work your way up as your confidence grows.
I made View F with the lace laterals.
- Pattern Designer: Suco by Susana
- Briefs Type: Low rise hipster with medium coverage
- Skill Level: Beginner to intermediate
- Size Range: XS - 3XL (hips size 81 - 142cm)
- Time frame: A very quick sew through to a more detailed project
Value for money:
$16NZD approx. (10.50 euro) seems to be a fairly average price for briefs patterns these days (and that can sometimes seem a bit steep) but this one has the added bonus of having seven styles in one plus a very detailed instruction booklet.
Yes! There are step by step instructions for each of the seven styles and these are accompanied by photos. Plus there are additional instructions/photo guides on how to blend sizes, mirror and cut lace, how to sew elastic and lace and a bonus fold over elastic guide. There is a chart of finished garment sizes which is always a nice cross reference to have when picking a size to cut. You are also told which pages you need to print for which styles.
There should be no confusion while sewing these panties! Beginner brief makers can learn a lot from this pattern while more advanced lingerie sewists can just skip to the section for the style they are sewing.
Accurate materials list:
There is a very detailed chart that breaks down the materials needed not only for each style but for the different sizes too. I think this is fantastic! It bugs me when patterns suggest an overly generous amount of fabric based on a single size.
Clear fabric recommendations:
Yes! There is a list of suggested fabrics to use depending on the style (one option is for extra stretchy fabrics - how cool is that!) plus a stretch percentage table.
Matching set potential:
This is just a briefs pattern but with the knit fabric and stretch lace options I'm sure there are plenty of opportunities to match to a bra pattern.
Oh my gosh - yes! The seven options range from all knit (for both 50% and 75% stretch fabrics) through to different lace details through to a full lace brief.
Invisible panty line:
This would totally depend on the chosen style and elastic application - the lace back options would sit smoothly under trousers.
This is a very detailed pattern with a lot of variety. The final fit is a very comfy one with nice, everyday wear type coverage while the added lace details mean you can elevate this pattern to something special.
* The pattern has been tweaked slightly since I made it - the cut along the front of the leg has been scooped back slightly.
