If you find you have multiple horizontal folds of fabric in your bra cup, you might have too much vertical length.
If you find that you have tightness, stress lines, or a flat spot at the apex, you might need to increase the projection. Projection is how much/far the breast sticks out from the body.
It's a new year and I'm changing things up a bit. Instead of posting public calls for pattern testers, I'm going to start an email list for pattern testers. It feels more exciting on publishing day if the pattern has been secret. If you wish to join the list for future pattern testing opportunities, please sign up.
You can find further detail about my pattern testing procedure on the pattern testing policy page. Happy Sewing!
I couldn't publish patterns without the hard work and feedback from my pattern testers. Here are their creations for the Emil Boxer Brief.
Why sew your own underwear?
Why sew your own underwear? Panties are a quick and easy sewing project, and are a great way to use up scraps from other makes. You can customize the fit and finishes for your own needs. My undie patterns solve some of the most common fit issues (I'm looking at you, gusset!) and come in a wide variety of style options. You don't need a serger or a fancy sewing machine, you just need to sew straight and zigzag stitches.
I design lingerie sewing patterns for everyday comfort and feminine style in an inclusive size range. Fill up your underwear drawer with beautiful custom-made bras and panties in your favorite fabrics and trims, designed to fit your body.
