Are you interested in trying out a harness style? This trend seems to be going to the extreme with whole-body harnesses, but I wanted to just dabble with one at the waist. If you can make a bra strap, you can easily make this sexy add-on to the Dahlia Hipster for Styles C & D. Watch the video below to see how it's done.

I am so happy to introduce to you my newest sewing pattern, the Dahlia Hipster. Dahlia is a low-rise panty with insets, either in lace or contrast fabric. Options include a front lace overlay and a waist harness.
Do you love lace as much as I do? My stash of wide stretch lace has been growing into a small mountain, and I wanted to try it out in a sexy-but-comfortable panty. After working on a few mid-rise styles, I decided to go low for this one. Back has medium coverage, showing just a bit of cheek.
All of my patterns are tested by sewists across my size range. Along with clarifying any details in the instructions, my testers help me make sure that my patterns can fit a wide range of bodies, and work in a variety of fabrics and trims.
Below are some of their lovely creations.
Bernice used some scraps from a previous project to make Style A.
Bikini or thong? Single string or double string? Lace overlays or printed jersey? The Sunflower Panty offers a variety of styling options to fill up your underwear drawer. The string bikini is one of my favorite panty styles, especially during the hottest time of the year. The sweltering heat makes me want as little fabric on my body as possible, and a string bikini is about as comfortably spare as I can get!
Hello, sewing friends! Back again today with the second tester roundup for the Hellebore Hi-Cut panties. In case you missed it, here is the first tester roundup.
When Edyta signed up as a tester, she shared with me that she was five months pregnant and wanted to make sure I'd be ok with her testing. Since I have never been pregnant myself, and don't know much about maternity clothing, I thought why not? The Hellebore Hi-Cut worked out well for her as far as fit, and I just love the double brushed poly print she used.
Hello, sewing friends! Today I'm sharing with you the first of three tester roundups for the Hellebore Hi-Cut panties.
When I created my first pattern, the Daisy Briefs, I received requests for panties with options for self bands and binding, and also for a back with less coverage. So I decided to make another basic style panty, this one with high leg openings (you might also know them as French cut), and provide several finishing options.
I love seeing the fun prints and colors that my testers come up with. Along with checking for a good fit across my size range, my testers provide me with helpful feedback on the instructions and inspiration for new color combinations. Some of them have such cute and funny knits in their fabric stashes, I'm finding new vendors to shop from.
So, here are the first six projects from my testers:
Hot Pink and black is such a classic combination. Amanda made up Style B, and it is fun to see what the lace looks like over a print.
I'm so happy to share with you my new pattern, the Hellebore Hi-Cut!
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.
