Has anyone made these up??? I couldn't find any reviews. I came across this pattern for the first time the other day.

I'm really curious about the "No VPL (visible panty lines) Undies" Are they really "No VPL?"

Thanks,
Emily

Wow, google is my friend...here's a youtube video.

I'd still like to hear if anyone has made them, though!

Subject: Pamelas Patterns #112 Date: 9/24/13 11:30 PM

I love Pamelas patterns, but both of my dds in their 20's, said to never buy a pair of panties with a center front seam, that goes to the back. I quote. 'those kind of panties make you feel like you're being cut in half'. And I know one of them wears thong underwear, so it that style must really be uncomfortable.

I made an unwearable muslin of one pair with the center seam, the fit was not right for me. It flared outward instead of hugging the cheek, so to speak, and I had a semi-wedgie. I intend to go back to them and try again, just haven't had the time yet.

I fins that a CB seam which concedes the existence of 'cheeks' is one of the best ways to prevent ride-up.

I couldn't say for sure, but the Pamela's patterns page refers to a liner, so I would assume there's an internal piece stopping the seam doing the 'cut in half' thing.

I make the panties as my standard pattern.

When I first made them up I used the crotch lining that is supplied. I found it looked a little bit 'messy' for want of a better word and for me ( a size 16) a little skimpy. I have since made a regular cotton gusset which doesn't show stitching on the outside.

When I first put the panties on I didn't like the leg finish. They sort of just flapped. I used 1 inch lace elastic around the legs to trim them and they look just like a boy leg style now. I ust FOE or lace elastic for the waist.

I make mine from many left over "jazzy" jerseys in winter and change to a cotton lycra for summer.
