I don't think this would work for me either. I've seen these in stores and patterns and they don't look the least bit comfortable. Seems like the lace would be scratchy. Let us know.

Thanks for the review and comparison. I'd looked at this pattern but more for the camisole than the panties.

Interesting! I have this pattern but live vicariously through y'all since I haven't found lace to try it yet... sorry it didn't work for you but great review!

Hi Great concept... you should turn this into a manuscript and shop it to a few sew mags for publication..... Thanks!

Very good review. It tells me I wouldn't want the McCall's undies.

The concept I was always taught was to measure. So, maybe I am obsessed. I measure the pattern, then myself; then, the pattern, and so on, and so on. Even then, I sometimes DO NOT get it right1!

I've sewn all the panties from this pattern and in the thong version added about 1" to the back lenght and reduced the width of the croth seam by about 1/2". I also added see through elastic around the waist to help them stay. Fit much better then store bought. At LaSanza last week I saw a pair advertised as the invisible panty for $12.95, I asked the sales girl how many you get for that price.......all they used was 1" stretch lace.
