Instead of the elastic band, you can use a knitted trim – then you won’t need to add allowances along the cutouts for legs and along the upper cut of the panties.
Easy DIY Panties Tutorial
Cutting out the parts panties:
Fold the fabric right side inward. Cut out the back part with a fold, the front part with a fold, and two parts of the gusset.
Cut off about 3 mm along the edge of the inner part of the gusset, so as not to thicken the seam later.
How to sew the panties
Pin together the front part of the panties and the gusset right side to right side, and the right side of the inner part of the gusset to the wrong side of the front part of the panties.
Thus, when the panties are turned over to the right side, the seam will be closed and the right side of the inner gusset will be closer to the body.
Seam to the width of the allowance. Cut off the allowance stepwise, so there is no sharp thickening of the seam. Cut out the corners.
Put together the gusset along the back seam – pin together the parts with the pattern right side to right side (the back part of the panties and the gusset), then turn over the inner gusset and pin it together with these parts. This way, the seam will be hidden inside after turning over. Seam on a sewing machine, cut off the allowance, and cut out the corners.
Pin together side seams, sew a straight allowance-wide stitching, and trim the allowance from the side of the back part. Iron the allowance to the side of the back part of the panties. Sew a small zigzag on the right side at a distance of 2-3 mm from the seam. Cut off the extra allowance.
What we have left is just to cover the cutouts for legs and the top with elastic bands. To do this, measure the length of all cutouts. Subtract 10% from the length of the cutouts for legs + leave 2 cm allowance. Subtract 15% from the length of the upper cut + leave 2 cm. Cut three pieces of the elastic band and seam each piece as a ring.
To evenly distribute the elastic band, divide each cutout into four equal parts and mark them, and then divide each elastic band into four equal parts, as well. Coincide these marks and pin them together.
Pay attention to how the elastic band is placed – the right side of the elastic band to the right side of the panties, and then align the even edges of the panties and the elastic band.
Sew the elastic band on the right side of the panties in a zigzag pattern. Do the left prick of the needle as close as possible to the festoon. Stretch the elastic band, not the fabric. Sew three elastic bands along three cutouts and cut off the excess allowance, if any.
Now turn over the elastic band to the wrong side of the panties and sew a zigzag.
Process all three cutouts the same way.
That’s all. The panties are finished!
