The super basic UNDERPANTS are, basically, SUPER! These underpants were designed especially with round bums in mind, offering full coverage around the back then curving into a low-rise hipster at the front. The pattern pieces look a little funky, but they piece together to create some truly cozy underpants that stay put.

These underpants are a quick sew, and I've offered instructions for a total of FOUR different finishes (three with elastic, and one with self-fabric). One of my favorite sewing techniques - the burrito method - of course also makes an appearance in this pattern. Please note that the final sewing pattern come up slightly higher than in the photos.

This pattern was drafted for a full hip measurement between 86cm and 170cm (333/4" - 67"). Step-by-step illustrated instructions are for a standard sewing machine or in combination with a serger and provide extensive detail.

This is a computer drafted, print and cut PDF pattern, printable in black/white or color. The A0/copyshop file is included in your purchase. The pattern includes all sizes, and is layered and nested to make for easy grading between sizes, if necessary. Size views can be easily toggled on or off in order to print only the size you want to make. 

Light- to mid-weight knits with good recovery, such as stretch cotton, bamboo or modal jersey with 40% to 100% stretch (drafted for approx. 60% stretch).

A great fit, fab pattern

I have many undie patterns, but wanted to try a new one because the seam placement in the back gave it a point of difference. Hands down the best fit and comparable to my RTW ones.

Well Explained, Quick & Great Fit

I never thought I would bother sewing underwear but I had some knit scraps from making T-shirts so I thought I would just try it. I'm SO glad I bought this pattern to try. The instructions are top! The illustrations are large and clear and correct (one would think all patternmakers checked before offering for sale, but they don't). I appreciated the elastic options (4) because I was using some of one kind and some of another to use what I had on hand. I am so sold on the quality of these patterns, both instructions and the drafting of, that I will be buying the jeans pattern next, and probably others ;-)

Great beginner project & great fit!

I’m new at sewing and have really enjoyed learning how to sew these panties. The instructions are very thorough, which I really appreciate as a beginner. I finished sewing my third pair a couple days ago and could not be happier with how perfectly they fit! Excited to try a few other Halfmoon Atelier patterns I picked up!

Comfiest knickers ever!

I don't have much experience sewing stretch fabrics but these were so easy to make (I used a normal machine). I used the self-fabric as elastic (my fabric had 90% stretch) and it worked brilliantly. I picked the size based on my hip measurements and they fit perfectly. I will definitely be making a lot more of these- comfy, elegant and I don't need to buy special elastic! Win!
