This lace thong is perfect to show of these beautiful stretch laces, that come at a width of 50mm – 70 mm. It’s also super comfortable and has of course all the benefits of the normal thong.

This thong has no side seams, but a front and a back seam. As always when working with lace, we need to make sure, that the pattern lines are straight along the lace edges.

Step 1: Lay out the pattern pieces of the basic panty pattern (maxi) as shown and draw the lines of your thong pattern on top of it. Make sure, that the smallest part of your pattern has 2 times the width of your elastic. Otherwise it will be difficult to sew the elastic.
