What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with some new lingerie.
Even better, there are quite a few free online patterns for such things. The two I tried for these samples are the Ruby Slip by Pattern Scissors Cloth and the Cheeky Panties by So Sew Easy. Both have easy instructions to follow and are easy to put together.
A comment regarding the Ruby Slip. The largest size given is a size 14 for a 38 1/2″ bust. Maybe because I used a stretch lace trim for the bodice pieces, I was still able to fit my 40″ bust. I’m going to try using a woven fabric to see if it still fits.
The only thing lacking in the panties tutorial is a mention about seam allowance size. Making a guess from looking at the pictures in the tutorial, I sewed using a 3/8″ seam allowance.
Here are some more links to some other free lingerie patterns. If you try any, let me know how they go.
If you already make your own, do you have a favorite pattern?
Happy sewing and happy Valentine’s!
