The Frisky Knickers is unlike any other underwear pattern! It has a fit that’s in-between our other two women’s brief underwear patterns, Scrundlewear 2.0 and Bunzies, and it includes two completely new styles that are a little…frisky! If you’d like to see a comparison of the fit between the three brief patterns we carry, download this file > Underwear Fit Comparison And then follow the instructions below.
1- First you’ll download the pattern. Click on the link and if it doesn’t download automatically just press control+s (command+s on mac) to save.
2- Open the file in the most up-to-date version of Adobe Reader (which is free, just google “free adobe reader”)
3- Click on the ‘layers’ tab on the left and then turn on/off the layers to compare the fit.
4- If you don’t see the layers function- check that you are in the most up-to-date version of adobe reader. If you are, go to View>Show/Hide>Navigation Panes>Layers
Aside from the new fit, this pattern includes two adorable cut-out options. See photos above.
Difficulty: Advanced Beginner
Techniques Involved: Sewing knit fabric, topstitching, sewing elastic (View A & B, optional), knit binding (View A, optional), quartering knit bands and leg/waist openings.
All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
This pattern is designed for light to medium weight knit fabrics and requires at least 50% crosswise stretch with 5% lycra/spandex in the fabric content. For a beginner sewist, I recommend starting with View C and using a medium to heavy weight knit as they’re easier to work with.
