For this little beauty I used Simplicity 1144. From the envelope: “Misses’ and Women’s Slip and Panties: A top-stitched inset joins the softly gathered upper front to the bias-cut lower front. The upper back, shaped in a V at the lower edge, is top-stitched to the bias-cut lower back.” I had fun doing the gathers at the bust which I find rather advantageous with a figure that has a boob deficiency.

I made this using the most divine satin I’ve ever had my hands on. It’s 100% rayon crepe back and feels like heaven.
Wrinkles like the devil, though.
