This is a very beautiful and easy to sew model of panties.
The thing about this particular model is that it has no side seams. There is one gusset closing seam and two middle seams – on the front and back parts of the panties.
What we need to sew Brazilian panties:
- Stretch lace (for size 44 (S) I needed 1.20 m of lace with a width of 15 cm)
- A small piece of knitwear for the gusset,
- Elastic decorative band to process the top of the briefs.
- Sewing pattern brazilian panties

Cutting out the parts of the brazilian panties:
Take the lace, pin the part of the sewing pattern, and cut out one part of the panties.
To cut out the second part of the briefs identically, take the first part and align it with the lace pattern on the cut, so that there are two twin details after cutting.
What is it for? After stitching the front and back parts together, the pattern on the panties will be symmetrical on both sides of the seam – it will look very nice.
Cut out one part of the gusset from a single jersey (cotton).
How to sew brazilian panties
So now we have three parts of the panties – two main parts and one gusset part. Since we sew underwear at home, on a conventional sewing machine, and consider options for beautiful seam treatment without a serger, we will examine a very beautiful seam for joining details made of thin materials, such as lace and mesh — the French seam. It will be completely closed, such a seam looks really neat.
How to make the French seam: take the two parts of the briefs and pin them together wrong side to wrong side. We will make the first stitch along the right side of the lace. During the process you probably will have a question: how to determine the right and the wrong sides of the lace. The lace pattern is usually smoother on the right side, and, in general, the lace pattern looks more glossy and beautiful on the right side.
As we have pinned together the details of the panties, sew the stitches at a distance of 0.5 cm from the edge.
One stitching is the middle seam of the front part of the panties, while the second one is the middle seam of the back part of the panties.
As we’ve sewed both stitches, trim the allowance close to the stitch.
Turn over the panties on the wrong side and put the allowance inside. Now pin together the parts right side to right side, so that the seam and the allowance remain inside. Now we’ll sew the stitches on the wrong side of the lace both on the back part and on the front part of the briefs. Sew the stitches at a distance of 0.5 cm from the edge.
That is it! The stitches are made, and now we need to iron the seams to one side and stitch a small zigzag at a distance of 1-2 mm from the edge of the seam. This is needed to gain a flatlock seam and for it not to move inside.
- Now we will join together the parts of the panties in the gusset area – take the gusset part and iron the allowances on three sides (on all sides except the seaming side) to the wrong side, so that after seaming the gusset to the briefs all the allowances to be hidden inside.
Join together the two parts of the panties along the closing seam of the gusset right side to right side, as well as the right side of the gusset part to the wrong side of the back part of the panties. Sew a straight allowance-wide stitching and cut off the allowance edge.
Iron the seam and turn away the gusset to the front part of the briefs. Fix it with pins and sew a small zigzag close to the edge – this way, the gusset is neatly sewn and holds securely.
Now we just need to cover the upper cut of the briefs with a decorative elastic band. You do not have to make an allowance for the upper cut if you use a knitted trim. I will use a decorative elastic band with a festoon.
To determine the length of the elastic band, which we will use for the panties, measure the upper cut with a measuring tape, subtract 10% from this value, and add 1 cm for the elastic band’s closing seam.
Overlap the edges of the elastic band and pin them together. Divide the resulting ring of the elastic band into four parts, divide the upper cut of the briefs into four parts as well, and coincide these marks to evenly distribute the elastic band.
Pin together the right side of the elastic band and the upper cut of the right side of the panties (the even cut of the elastic band and the even edge of the briefs).
Sew a small zigzag close to the edge of the festoon, make bartacks at the beginning and at the end of the stitch. Sew a small zigzag connecting the stitch at the place where the elastic band’s edges form the ring.
Now what is left is just to turn over the elastic band to the wrong side of the briefs and sew a wide three-step zigzag.
That’s all. Our Brazilian panties are finished!
