Is this set looking familiar? After yesterday's post about creating the strappy pattern hack for the Elodie Briefs, I decided to make this my set of the week. This also uses the same lace fabric as last week's set, aqua lace.
When I design a pattern, I try to offer four style variations. Sometimes I'll have ideas for more variations, but, for a number of reasons, I can't include them all in the pattern. When I was working on the Elodie Briefs I had more ideas for lace overlays, which will be used for a new pattern in the future, and I also had an idea for a strappy option that uses elastic along the sides instead of the side panels. The pattern was already long enough, so I decided to offer the instructions here as a pattern hack. I hope you enjoy.
In case you missed it, here is Part 1 of the Elodie Briefs tester roundup. Now we continue to Part 2 of the Elodie Briefs tester roundup.
Here is Part 1 of the Elodie Briefs tester roundup. Every time I test a pattern I am very lucky to get to work with a really fantastic group of sewists! Their behind-the-scenes work really helps me improve my patterns and inspires my creativity with their lovely creations. I am happy to share their work with you today.
I’ve already covered pattern alterations for adjusting the rise for a different torso length, which affects both the front and back rise length. But what do we do when the back rise length is good, and the front rise dips too low?
Problem: The back rise fits well, but the front rise dips too low
