|Pattern Description: High-waisted briefs.|
Pattern Sizing: multi-sized, I sewed a 42.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, mine highlighted the seams because I had contrasting panels.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't bother with the instructions. Construction was very straight forward. A complete novice could sew these. She/He would only need a little help with the gusset which needs to be sewn inside out at the front and the back. The sides are finished off when you add the picot elastic to the leg openings.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the retro styling.
Fabric Used: I used power net for the back and sides, and a piece of vintage silk damask from an old Japanese kimono for the front panel. And of course, a scrap of cotton jersey for the gusset.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The pattern called for a side seam zipper. I didn't think this would be comfortable, and since I was using power net, I omitted it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would sew it again and recommend it to others.
Conclusion: A nice, old fashioned, full brief pattern. Because it has panels, it gives you an opportunity to mix fabrics. For example, you could sew this out of stretch lace and line the front panel in a solid fabric to peak through behind the lace, etc. I wrote more about this project on my blog.
