A great fitting brief is just absolutely the best thing. If it looks good all the better. I designed lingerie when I first started out and forgot all about those days of yonder until I had resort back to my old patterns when I just didn't want to spend a fortune on pretty knickers but still wanted the fit, the look and comfort. So I made about 15 on a rainy afternoon and wondered afterwards why I ever bought any in the first place.
When I told my students in my sewing class that I had made knickers from a stash of old patterns and jersey they wanted to make some too! So I copied the patterns for them and off we went. Now this is a firm favorite as they are quite quick and easy once you get the hang of it. Plus they fit like a dream. So make your own, the pattern is free and comes with a free online lesson too!
The lesson can be found by clicking the link above: blog about this. Alternatively visit my website, frocksandfrolics.com, under sewing projects you will find the 'knickers' too.
And of cause more projects you might like.

Sewing has always been my hobby and my profession. I first trained as a tailor as a young girl after which I worked for some fabulous designers. To fit work around my son I became a teacher of Textiles and Product Design. When my son finished school and moved to the USA I decided to start my own business and do what I love best; draft patterns and teach beginners and advanced sewers how to make their projects look professional. I hope you enjoy my patterns and instruction. Now we followed our boy to the US and I get to sew in the beautiful Californian sunshine!View all patterns by designer (49) »
