25 Panties Sewing Resources & Tutorials

25 panties sewing resources and tutorial to help you sew your own underwear

Hi guys! I have a confession to make. Up until this year, I’ve been pretty unexcited about sewing panties. The main reason being that buying panties that fit is not really a pain point for me. I can get perfectly cute and reasonably well-fitting underwear from aerie at $2.00 a pop when they’re on sale.

So what has changed for me?

The perfect panties pattern came along.

I’m serious. When it comes to underwear, I don’t really need a varied selection. I don’t shop for thongs or g-strings or tangas or cheekies. I’m a bikini/hipster/boy brief kind of girl through and through.

My absolute favorite cut is actually the bikini and while aerie’s bikinis come in cute prints and great colors, the rise is actually a little low on my long torso. The material quality is also a little lacking. However, these small problems haven’t been enough to get me to make more panties for myself. (Yes, I do sew a lot of panties as evident on Instagram, but they are generally gifts and not for personal wear.)

But then, Hannah of Evie la Luve released the Frankie Panties Pattern and suddenly I have the perfect bikini pattern. I can finally dig into all the printed stretch fabric that I’ve been hoarding away and turn them into bikini panties for everyday wear.

And apparently, I’m not the only one who had a panty awakening (this absolutely awesome term was coined by Erin of Emerald Erin). For the month of March, Erin of Emerald Erin is throwing a Sew Panty Party. It’s easy to participate. If you feel like you’ve been neglecting your panties wardrobe, all you have to do is sew up some panties for the month of March and hashtag your makes #sewpantyparty on Instagram. To learn more about the Sew Panty Party, check out Erin’s post here.

5 Free Underwear Sewing Patterns

// CLICK HERE TO VIEW & DOWNLOAD THE FREE UNDERWEAR PATTERNS //

Last week, I took over Maker Style’s instagram to talk about my favorite free underwear sewing patterns. We revealed a pattern each day and in each post I shared tips for materials and techniques you can try with each pattern.

It’s a new year and I’ve noticed that many makers have included lingerie making as part of their new year’s resolutions. Sewing lingerie does not have to be daunting–you don’t have to dive into an underwire bra as your first project. In fact, you can start with something simple like a pair of underwear. All the techniques you learn with sewing underwear can be applied towards more advanced lingerie projects.

Hopefully, this Instagram takeover has inspired some of you to start your lingerie sewing journey!

The download links to all the underwear patterns are now available over at Maker Style’s blog. Click here to view and download the patterns!
