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
Even though my valentine is far away this year, I made myself a pretty (and comfortable!) magenta lace set for Valentine's Day!
I'm so happy to share with you my new pattern, Elodie Briefs!
While I love wearing different styles of undies, full-coverage briefs are my favorite these days. I've nearly worn out almost all the pairs of Daisy Briefs I've made, so I decided it was time to make another brief pattern.
This week has been cold and dreary, so can I pretend that spring is coming soon with sunny skies and flowers?
Last week I sewed up this shirt out of llama printed flannel using a self-drafted pattern. When I showed it to my husband and mentioned I had fabric leftover, he said, "I'd totally wear a shirt out of that fabric!" But there wasn't enough leftover to make a shirt, and I was trying to think up an alternate project.
I wore the shirt a few days later to my quilting bee and told the story to my friends, and they said, "Make him boxer shorts instead!" Hah! What a good idea.
I don't have a pant block drafted to my husband's measurements, and didn't have time to make one, so I decided to just go search for a boxer short pattern. I found 400 Oak Street by Green Style Creations.
They sewed up pretty quickly and I'm pleased with how they came out. Whether they fit or not remains to be seen; these are a Valentine's Day present.
I didn't see many reviews for this pattern, so I'll give you a short summary of the pros and cons.
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 panties in your favorite fabrics and trims, designed to fit your body.
