Advanced Beginner – you know how to sew but you may never have sewn with knits or stretch fabrics before

Lesson Plan

Meet Beverly and start by learning how boyshort panties differ from briefs. Then find out how to accurately take key measurements, choose fabrics and determine the amount of stretch and direction of greatest stretch.

Follow along as Beverly guides you step by step to draft a custom boyshort pattern using the measurements you took in Lesson 1. You’ll see how easy it is to create a pattern that you can adapt for many variations.

Start preparing your fabric using Beverly’s tips to prevent the edges from curling as you cut. After that, sew the panty (including seams) and leg hems, then apply the elastic at the upper edge, before adding a gusset lining for extra comfort and cleanliness.

Learn how to make simple alterations to your master boyshort pattern for some cute variations, including lace edging, contrasting fabric bands and an all-lace version. Beverly shares construction tips to help you along the way.

Head back to the drafting table to draft a unique combination-style panty that resembles briefs in the front and boyshorts in the back, the perfect fusion of comfort and style.

Wrap things up with two beautiful variations for the combo panty: one with a mitered lace overlay, and the other with lace edging on the back so you can comfortably show off your curves in style!
