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 seal the pack contents to ensure it arrives safely at its destination.

This pattern includes.....
- Step by step sewing instructions
- Detailed diagrams to help you along the way
- A small fabric swatch to guide you when selecting your fabric
- The layplan which shows you how to arrange the pattern on the fabric, and
- A list of notions you will need and the fabric requirements
*Fabric and other notions are not included with this pattern

Skills you need
This pattern is suitable for an average sewer and will take only a few hours to complete. Skills required include straight stitching, zig-zag stitch, attaching knicker elastic and hand sewing (slip stitch).

Attaching knicker elastic can be a bit tricky the first time so to help you along we've included a step by step guide on our blog http://themakersjournal.blogspot.com/2011/10/how-to-attach-knicker-elastic.html
