Altitude Thong - Downloadable PDF Sewing Pattern
This is a downloadable PDF Sewing Pattern.
The main function of these undies is for dancing around the house by yourself. View one is the perfect high waist thong; sleek, no side seams, perfect for pairing with body skimming outfits and lightweight garments. View two is the showstopper, obviously. It's absolutely precious in the aforementioned house-dancing, and also excellent under full skirts and dresses. The ruffle makes it super comfy, and mimics the feel of a high cut brief in the back.
GARMENT SPECIFICS The Altitude Thong is a high waist, high cut thong with a panel at the hips. View one is the ultimate streamlined garment, while view two features delicate inserted ruffles around the legs. The crotch is fully lined, and uses a great trick to enclose all the seams.
This garment can be entirely constructed with a sewing machine, serger optional. Techniques required include zig zag stitches and working with elastic.
SUGGESTED FABRICS Knit fabrics with 50-75% stretch, preferably with a spandex content. Bamboo, Rayon, or blends with Cotton, Lycra, Silk, Spandex, Nylon, Tencel. 100% cotton tends to stretch out quickly. Measure stretch by marking out 4” of fabric, then gently stretch to max.
