The Make and Fit Panties Book includes step-by-step how-to instructions with large print and lots of illustrations. The book includes well-drawn diagrams of how to make and fit both the classic brief and the boy short. The book includes instructions describing how to draft both styles, how to change the styles into many other fashion styles, and how to alter the panties for fit. You will also learn all of the construction techniques that will make your panties rival the best ready-to-wear.
The book is spiral-bound, to sit open flat on a table.
Plenty of Panties
When you first start reading the Make & Fit Panties Book, you may be surprised to learn how many different styles of panties exist. Yet, all of them can be made from only two basic patterns – the Brief and the Boy Short. You can easily draft either of these basic styles with only four body measurements. Even if you have never drafted anything before now, the panty draft is easier than you think. You will learn about working with stretch fabrics and how to calculate the negative ease necessary to make a well-fitting panty.
The draft itself is relatively quick to make. Once you add the seam allowances and marking the DoGS, you can start to sew. If you have never sewn with stretch knits before, you will appreciate the straightforward instructions shared by the author. Finish the seams with either zig-zag stitches or a serger and finish the elastics with your choice of four different stitches.
Once you make the first pair, you will fit them and alter areas of concern. Again, the Make & Fit Panties Book includes all of the fitting tips you are likely to need. Learn to alter the pattern for a protruding bum, panniculus, or larger tummy. Your new panties should fit like a glove.
Now the fun begins as you learn to re-style your panty pattern into any style on the planet. Do you want a high-cut leg, bikini, or a thong? Perhaps tap pants or bicycle shorts are in your future. Whatever style you choose, you will be sure to learn to make them in this valuable book.
