Self-drafted panties

I have drafted my first panties according to my own measurements and made a wearable muslin of the whole block (i.e. up to waist height) and it fits very well. Better than any other pattern I have used so far. It needed very little adjustment - I lowered the back a bit because of my "sway back" and made the leg openings a bit higher at the front. I have now traced the block for a lower cut that I can wear with my jeans. I am so pleased with how easy it is to draft! I am thinking about buying the Dutch book Een Tweede Huid by Margreet van Dam to learn more about drafting lingerie (it includes information on drafting panties, bras, and bodysuits with underwiring and more), as I am not aware of any courses being offered here like in the Netherlands.


Ek het gister my eerste slip-patroon geteken vanaf eie mates en het 'n proefmodel gemaak. Die proefmodel is tot op taille-hoogte en sit goed. Ek het 'n paar klein veranderinge gemaak - middelagter so 1.5 cm korter gemaak en die been-opening voor 'n bietjie hoër (hooger). Wil vanoggend verder werk aan 'n slip wat ek saam met my jeans kan dra. Lekker om so 'n patroon self te teken! Ek begin dink daaraan om die boek van Margreet van Dam, "Een tweede huid", te koop om meer oor teken te leer. Kan ongelukkig nie hier 'n kursus bywoon nie : (

    Always nice to have a well fitting pattern. I drew mine with Margreet's book and use it nearly every time. Wich method did you use here Tina?
