Pattern Manipulation 6: High-waisted Panty

High-waisted Panty

This is part 6 of the series about panty pattern manipulation. Here you can read part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5.

High-waisted Panty

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 of 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.

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 up one of these designs, I’d love to see them! :)
Next step for me is finally editing 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.

Do you like pattern making blog articles in general? Would you like to read more stuff like this?
