I was a little nervous that this would be too high waisted on me, looking at the model photos. But alas, thanks to my round bum, no worries. It's maybe a half inch too high and sits a little higher than my jeans waistband, but that is minor in the grand scheme. This pattern is my new favorite!
Take a look and let me know if this helps you and makes sense. Bear in mind, I'm just starting and am not a professional film maker. The quality of my videos is likely to improve over time as each blog post and thing I share are basically a working document or a work in progress. :) There's always room for improvement.
Surprisingly, this pair of panties did not really show a panty line under my pants. The knit elastic I used is a little heavier than I prefer, so I was surprised.
Boy was this pair of panties comfy. I wore them all day and didn't even know I was wearing any! Better than my RTW!
Modifications I will make are:
- Swayback adjustment, approx 1/2" to 1". I will do swayback instead of just cutting down the waist so that I maintain the integrity of the waistline.
- If the swayback doesn't work, I will simply shorten the length of crotch. On the back piece, I will keep all the same sizes as I first chose (CC) and for the crotch seam choose something like (AA) or even (Z) or (X). This is another way I can lower back waist. I would choose this method because I noticed there was a little extra fabric in the crotch area. I've found this sometimes on french cut panties where the leg opening is really high (I was nervous it would be too big on me in this pattern, but it's quite perfect for my protruding thigh). Though, I will need to keep in mind that removing the extra length in the crotch will also remove extra length (circumference) in the leg opening.
That's IT! Pretty minor! I'm super happy with this pattern. SUPER happy.
