Make Your Own Panties

Does anyone know where I can get patterns for womens panties? I would like styles with no elastic in the legs. I have made panties with elastic in the legs but would like the ones that look more like shorts. Other styles would be accepted.

What if you used a swim suit pattern with "boy leg" bottoms? Another idea is using a 2 piece short pajama pattern. Here's an example: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bi ... &TI='panties'&page=1 You could probably hem the legs instead of using lace.

If you have a pair that you like, the easiest

and cheapest way is to take that pair apart and

cut fabric out just slightly larger (to allow for

eams) using your old panties as pattern

pieces. Hope this helps.

Quik Sew Patterns have pantie patterns. You can get these at fabric stores.

Are there any manufacturers that make high-cut leg panties with high waist? Pictures on packages show panties covering the navel, but they don't even reach the navel. What's wrong with manufacturers? Do they think everyone wants those skimpy panties? They make sexy lacy panties for young teenies, but can't make any for grandmothers. Don't they think the elderly women like to have lacy underwear instead of "granny panties"? The high-cut legs are great, but the low-cut waist is no good.""""

Some good sites for DIY underwear are: http://www.supernaturale.com/howto/fibre/tshirtundies/index.html,

http://www.max.hi-ho.ne.jp/hotaru/panty, and http://www.craftster.org.

On Craftster, just search for underwear. Hope that helps!

Breezies on QVC.com make high-cut legs with the waist at the navel.

I'm with you, babe, I don't like skimpy panties. Breezies are also a terrific panty.

In fact, check out their great-looking, great-fitting bras while you're there.

If you want to save money, buy them at eBay.com .
