I'm so happy to share with you my new pattern, the Hellebore Hi-Cut!
The Hellebore Hi-Cut is a sexy panty with high leg openings (also called French cut), fully enclosed gusset, mid -rise waistline and a bit of cheek showing in the back. Leg and waist finishing options include elastic, knit bands and knit binding.

◊ Style B: front and back wide lace overlays with turned back elastic finish
◊ Style C: 1/2”/12mm leg and waist bands
◊ Style D: 1/2”/12mm leg bands and a 1”/2.5cm waist band
◊ Style E: 1/2”/12mm waist and leg bindings
◊ Style F: 2”/5cm lace waist finish and front overlays. Leg finish can be bands or bindings
Having an inclusive size range is important to me. We all need undergarments, right? I worked with lovely pattern testers of all shapes and sizes to ensure a good fit across the size range.
Waist: 26-50” / 66-127cm
Hip: 35-60” / 89-152cm
Below is the size chart for more detailed information.
Fabrics & Trims
Hellebore can be sewn in a wide variety of knits with at least 40% stretch. I made my own samples in cotton/spandex jersey, rayon/spandex jersey, stretch mesh and stretch lace. Here is more detailed information.
Adventurous beginner. Instructions are fully illustrated, and pattern includes links for videos on how to sew an enclosed gusset, and sewing knit bands and binding. You only need to know how to sew straight and zig-zag stitches.
PDF Pattern with Layers
This print-at-home PDF pattern has a fully illustrated 12 page instruction manual, which includes information on printing and assembling the pattern pages (printable on US letter and A4 paper), a size guide, and an elastic lengths chart. The pattern pages include a layers option to print only the sizes you need and a stretch guide for measuring the stretch percentage of fabrics.
