There is a bra and panty box with all manner of elastics, stretch lace, super mesh, straps, everything you need to put together a lingerie wardrobe. Of course, I don't have what I need for the Rosy Ladyshorts pattern from Cloth Habit. Allover stretch lace is missing from the box, but we forge ahead because I may soon be in a city where I can pick some up, so excited!! We start with the muslin pattern in cotton jersey.
I had read that some found the crotch to be very long, I suspected this might be a problem for me as well, because I have a not so full bottom, so using a pair of panties that were very similar, I compared my panties to the pattern.
The crotch would be about 2" too long, so I trimmed that away, and kept the rest as is.
I followed the construction instructions, and on the website there's a lot of useful information on how to select your fabrics as well as good information on the stretch factor in knits. I really like using the 1" stretch lace across the waist and will try it on other TNT panty patterns. I took some liberties with the crotch instructions but this works.
They both fit, the test will be if they stay up with wear, as they are super comfortable, but time will tell... So far I recommend the pattern, the style is comfortable, and they are easy to make, the tutorials on the website are very informative.
It's a free pattern from Cloth Habit, here, and if I were a smaller size, I would buy their Watson bra it is exactly what I've been looking for :(
