**This listing is for a PDF SEWING PATTERN, not an actual piece of clothing.**
Beautiful laces and low-stretch fabrics are showcased with a classic and comfy style in the Tulip Hi-Cut. High leg openings are the hallmark of the hi-cut/French cut style. The front panel can be made with stretch lace trim, low-stretch knits, or bias wovens, so it is easy to make a matching bottom for your handmade bras.

Wraparound back options include medium coverage or thong. All edges are finished with fold over elastic. The Tulip Hi-Cut has a medium rise and a fully enclosed gusset.
