My Projects

Home-made Under....Wears - Formula

Posted on June 6, 2010 at 9:35 PM

 

Gotta love my new panties.                                 

    

These were posted in my Readers Closet on Threads website. I just want to show you all how simple to make your own panties to minimize the cost. I got the stretching lace on sale $2.98 per m but buy 1m get 2m free (some time buy 1 get 3 free at Fabricland) This lace width is 7 inches (18cm)

 

                           You need to measure :

  • A --- hip (where your underwear's hip)
  • B --- underwear's length (measure from front through between your legs to the back). You decide how high of your underwear raise
  • C --- thigh round (measure around your thigh but make it angle from bottom to your hip)

 

Here is how to design and cut on sketching paper

 

1. Fold in half . From folding line measure 1/4 of your hip measurement  (A) minus (-) movements (usually 2--3cm) . You have EE'

 

2. From top of folding line measure down EF

    2.1 Back piece : 1/2 of underwear length (B) minus (-) 3cm

    2.2 Front piece : 1/2 of underwear length (B) plus (+) 3cm

 

3. From F draw 90 degree line, measure FF' = 1/10 of B

 

4. From E measure down on folding line EG = 3 --- 6 cm or depends on how big of side's width ( my panties here is 5.5cm) .

 

5. From G draw 90 degree line, measure GG' = 1/4 of A

 

6. Connect F' to G' :

 

     6.1 Back piece : F'G'

 

     6.2 Front piece :

 

            6.2.1 mark the center of F'G'  you have K, and draw a line from E to K, measure KK' = 1/3 of EK

 

            6.2.2 mark on folding line from F : FJ = 1/3 of EF. From J draw 90 degree line and measure JJ' = FF' - 1 or 2 cm

 

            6.2.3 Draw a curve line from F' through J' , K' to G' (F'J'K'G').

 

            6.2.4 Cut a piece of lining the same size with the bottom part of front piece.

 

7. There's a trick here when cutting: leave 0.5cm seam allowance except the bottom of the back piece. From F point on folding line lengthen it down 0.5cm to 1 cm plus 0.5cm seam allowance. The bottom line will be a curve line

 

 

Hope you're not confusing. Cut on paper first, then you can decide to put more details on your panties... like the one I made , I used stertching lace and bias for the back piece and added pleats. (For Pleats: from E raise up from 2 - 5 cm or depends on how many pleats added or ruffles)

 

You can email me or put on comments for any question or sharing your projects with me...
