You Will Need
- A flexible tape measure
- A sewing pattern
- Straight pins
Take your measurements
Take your measurements with a tape measure wrapped snugly around your undergarments.
Determine your size
Read the chart on the back of your pattern and figure out your size. You will be a bigger size than you are in the store.
Read the back of your pattern envelope to learn the best fabrics to use and what notions, such as buttons or elastic, you will need.
Cut out your pattern
Cut out your pattern from the printed sheet. Because multiple sizes are printed on the same page, be sure to cut out your size.
Cut out your fabric
Review the general directions and cutting layouts on the instructions. Following the layout for your view and size, pin all pattern pieces to your fabric and cut out your pieces.
Follow sewing directions
Follow the instructions for your view one step at a time. Refer to the piece list and general instructions at the top of the instructions.
Read each step several times to make sure you understand it, and work carefully. With a little patience and effort, you'll soon have your own wearable piece of art.
