Pattern Description:

Learn how to easily produce your own undies for your little ones: 12 sizes (3 to 14 years, suitable for petite womans too - see hips measurements below), tested from 25+ seamstresses from all around the world.

My daughter loves to wear these fashionable but comfy underwear: for a greener touch, refashion hubby's T-shirts!

Big girl Briefs PDF Pattern's main features

- Two waist options (regular and higher with an extra high back rise: can't look at those naked backs on kids... no more skin flashing out!)

- No side seams

- No itchy elastic

- With your purchase you'll have 15 instruction pages, with a step by step photo/illustration tutorial full of big pics, for easiest readability.

- Plenty of links to online tutorials and deeper insights.

- Measurements are given in both metric and imperial; choose your size basing on hip measurements, then customize waistline, rise and decorative (optional) detail along the front

- Refashion suggestions included

- Sewing in batches suggestions: ideal project (you never have too many briefs, and sewn in batches is better!)

- 4 sheets pattern pieces are completely computer-drafted, color coded (and dotted lines too, for a black and white frugal print) with seam allowances included and marked.
