Here is a basic bra and panty plus size pattern set that you can use as a template for modification when developing your own stylized lingerie and undergarments!

This set is great if you want to make your own undergarments, and they are meant to be sewn in a knit stretchy fabric just like the ones that you purchase in stores. The bra has shaped bust pieces and have a marking on the pattern if you want to sew in an optional underwire. The panties have a full coverage shape that sit about 2" below natural waist. This set works great as a template for you to experiment and design/draft/sew your own personal and unique panties!

Size 34 – A cup
Size 36 – A cup
Size 38 – B cup
Size 40 – B/C cup
Size 42 – C cup

    I am a 36B. Based on the Burda women’s size chart, I made a practice bra in size 40 with a low-stretch knit fabric (less than 25% stretch). I was not happy with the fit of the cups (too small) before realizing the sloper was a cup size A. I made this adjustment http://clothhabit.com/bra-making-sew-along-cup-adjustments/, spreading the dart at the bust point 1/2", and made a new set of cups. The sloper now fits me perfectly :) Thank you, Cloth Habit! Those of you with larger cup sizes should try this method, perhaps adding more than one dart.

    I just pieced this pattern together and I honestly think most of you are cutting & taping it wrong, The pieces all lined up perfectly and were the correct sizes. I haven’t sewn this yet but plan to very very soon and will both update my review and post a photo of the finished product.

    For the people nervous about getting this pattern because of the reviews, don’t let that stop you ! I almost let it stop me, but decided to give it a try anyway. And I’m glad I did. You just have to make sure you DON’T scale to fit (during printing) , leave it as is . And when it come to cutting & taping, try to match the pieces up before cutting (paying attention to which blank areas around the pattern that need to be cut off & tossed). It wasn’t difficult, just required you full attention .

      I agree. It’s important to pay attention to the markings on the pattern and the instructions (German translated into English and no illustrations. One of my issues with Burda patterns is that a sewist using a novice-rated pattern IMO needs a lot of sewing experience to complete successfully.) It’s easy to get confused. And matching princess seams can be a bit tricky.

    I would not recommend this pattern to anyone. I have experience manipulating patterns and this one isn’t even good as a sloper. Most seams do not match, and the cups barely cover a bust, considering that they’re also very small. I did everything the instructions said, and it was so off. It lays incorrectly and I cannot see a way it could work even with different fabrics and or adjustments.

    Will there ever be a draft for 32DD or 32DDD? Or is my only option a size 52?

    Why are the panties so HUGE? I bought the regular pattern (not the plus sized) and the test square is measuring correctly yet the smallest size is still 3 sizes larger than the size 12 butterick panties I have cut out that have seam allowances included. How does this make any sense? Why are they so HUGE? I wasted my money.

    BEWARE! This pattern’s seams do not match on the bra! Its very disappointing to see such major flaws in a purchased pattern. :(

      Did you swap the center and side bra pieces? I noticed that they’d be easy to mix up and that the seam lines match one way and don’t the other. I found that the seam lines did match, so I don’t want anyone else to be turned off.

      unfortunately i did not mix them up. the side seams are clearly labeled and actually none of my seams matched- side seams, center back to side back, front panels. perhaps i cut out wrong but the lines are pretty clearly marked. :(

      Hi! I cut a size 38 with a 3/8" seam allowance. My cup size is A and it fits perfectly. However, I did use muslin fabric (woven) since this is a toile. I hope this helps!
