Howto for Cheeky panties is located at http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/306 The panties have a lowered-waist, hipster cut with either a slightly cheeky behind or a decidedly cheeky behind, depending on both the stretchiness of the knit you use for the panties and the fleshiness of the bottom that fills them (they’re very cheeky on me due to my ample posterior. They look far less cheeky in the pictures because Ms Dressform has a teeny little botty). These panties are also comfortable despite said cheekiness- you know how years and years ago when g-strings first came out, the buzz was all “Oooooh, they’re sexy and like, so! comfortable!” when in fact they’re like, so! neither! Well these panties actually, uh, fulfil the brief, as it were.
Pattern is sized for a Burda 38 because I drafted/modelled them to myself and that’s what I am, but they will perhaps fit the sizes just-above-and-below due to being made from stretch knit. I am sorry not to be able to offer more sizes at this stage, but after sweating over the pattern the thought of now having to grade made me start hyperventilating and rather than lose conciousness over it, I thought I’d just get the pattern up and available to members, and perhaps if I was very very lucky another kind BurdaStyle soul might even take it upon herself to grade it…
These panties are far harder to describe how to make than they are to make. If you require any clarification by all means contact me via a comment on my profile page, I will do my best to assist.
