The SKIMPY pattern is available in sizes 8-14 and has has been designed to sit low on the waist with a cut away leg and reduced bottom coverage.
I made the photo sample from a Liberty print floral called Mauvey in pink found at www.tessuti.com.au in Melbourne. This pattern has been developed for lightweight woven fabrics and I recommend printed cottons or soft cotton blends; small prints work best. For the gusset I used a light and stretchy swimsuit tricot lining
I print my SEWING PATTERNS onto 100% recycled paper and then vacuum pack the contents to minimise it's impact on our precious world.
