Big Girl Briefs from Serger Pepper | Tween Pattern Showcase
I’m showcasing the newest pattern from Serger Pepper today- Big Girl Briefs. The size range is huge, all the way from 3-14. That makes it a perfect underwear pattern for tweens!
It’s the first pattern I ever used to make underwear, although you saw a pair of men’s briefs on Fathers Day. I’ve been using it over and over; just waiting until the release date to show you.
I got addicted to making them! They use up smaller bits of knit fabric, and look great mixed and matched. There’s a cute detail in the front that uses strips of woven fabric. I like the way the crotch part is contructed; with no open seams or unfinished edges. This pattern also has nested sizing, which is a really neat feature. How great is it to only print the size you need?!
When I made my first pair of Big Girl Briefs, I was a little nervous. Undergarments were foreign territory! I used leftover scraps, because I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. But I managed, and each pair got easier.
For this pair, I increased the waistband and leg measurements and made Big Mama Briefs. Ha!! It has full booty coverage, so there’s nothing hanging out…that’s why the size range will go way past the girls size 14.
Lately, my undie sewing is looking more professional. This pair was the first time I tried fold-over elastic. (The pattern works great without the woven strips too!) Even though they aren’t quite perfect…they’re my favorite pair so far.
I now have lots of fold-over elastic and pico edge lingerie elastic in the stash. As soon as I get a chance, I’ll show you some of my latest undies. (They are cute, and I’ve gotten better at making them!)
