The high-waisted panty was quite popular around the fifties but also had a comeback in recent years. Since there is more room than on a low-waist panty, it’s a great way to show off lace or printed fabrics. When you use a non-stretch-fabric for the front and powermesh for the sides and back you get great shapewear with tummy control.
This pattern is for a panty with no side seams, but two front seams and a back seam. It also features a horizontal waistband and a peephole in the back.
Step 1: Draft the waistband, it has one seam in the back. Draft the front seams and the peephole in the back.
Step 2: Cut the side piece from the front piece and add it to the back piece. Redraw the lines on the new back piece.
Step 3: Finish the pattern by adding seam allowance.
So, now we’re at the end of this really long panty pattern making series. Thank you for staying with me for such a long read. 😀 I hope this article series helped you understand pattern making a bit better. If you sew one of these designs, I’d love to see them! 🙂
Next step for me is to finally edit the video tutorial for sewing the everyday panty pattern, where I’ll focus on different techniques of applying elastics. I hope to upload it by the end of August.
