I am so thankful for all of the love I am receiving on my new pattern line. I am working on my next release, so I thought I would pop in to show you a quick project! Today I am going to show you a very quick and easy Linda Panty Pattern Modification.
The pattern modification itself takes Five Minutes.
And it sews up using the same instructions you already have in your booklet! The look is completely transformed, so it’s like getting a two-for-one pattern!
Here we go…
Take Linda Front panty piece. At the top edge, measure about 3-4inches (or where you’re comfortable with) in and mark with pencil.
At the hip line (follow the outer edge down to where it stops) measure about 2-3inces in and mark with pencil.
Connect your line with a straight ruler.
Cut the pattern piece at the line you just created.
Take the piece you just cut off, and connect it to the panty back pattern piece where the side seam was. You want these pieces to overlap by 5/8” because we are removing the seam allowance.
You also want to add seam allowance to your new panty front. Note: I usually do this directly on the fabric with chalk or some sort of marking tool.
Now that you have a front panty piece and a back panty piece, you can continue following the instructions provided in the pattern! The edges on both new pattern pieces will act as “side seams” although they now fall in a different place. EASY PEASY for a whole new look!
If you want to take it a step further, you can create the same design on the back pattern piece and create side panels which are very pretty with mesh fabric as the panel.
I hope you enjoy this version just as much as the original. You can never have too many basics. Time to the #operationpantydrawer to the next level!!
