Free Underwear Pattern Tutorial | At First Blush Patterns

The Be Bashful Bikini was just released a little over a week ago and it had a great response!  As you may already know, Be Bashful is a free underwear pattern available if you subscribe to this blog.  For those of you who may be dabbling into lingerie for the first time using this free underwear pattern I wanted to create a step-by-step photo tutorial to help you sew up Be Bashful.  If you prefer to watch me make Be Bashful click HERE.

Here we go! 🙂

Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: Sandwich the Bikini Back between the two lining pieces at the crotch. Make sure the right side of main fabric lining is facing the right side of the Bikini Back and the right side of the interior lining fabric is facing the wrong side of the Bikini Back.  Use a zigzag stitch or overlock to sew the three pieces together.

Step 2: Match the right side of the Bikini Front with the right side of the main lining piece at the crotch seam.  Twist the interior lining piece so the right side lines up with the wrong side of the Bikini Front at the crotch seam.  Pin in place then sew. Your underwear will have a clean seam on the front and the back once you untwist.

Step 3: Pin the right sides of the front and back side seams together then stitch.

Step 4:  Measure the waistband opening and the leg openings then subtract 2” from each.  Cut your elastic based on these measurements.  You will have three pieces of elastic.

Step 5: Overlap the raw edges of the waistband elastic by about 1/2” then stitch.  Repeat this on the elastic for each leg opening.

Step 6: Divide the waistband four ways and mark each with a pin.  Line up the seam of the waistband with either side seam of the bikini; keep right sides together and the scallop edges of the elastic towards the body of the garment.  Stretch the elastic so that the pins match at both side seams and center front and center back.  Pin then use a zigzag stitch while making sure to stretch the elastic to match the length of the fabric as you sew.  Repeat for both leg openings.

Step 7:  Flip the elastic to the wrong side of the fabric so the scallop edge now points away from the body of the garment. Next, zigzag stitch around the perimeter of the waistband and both leg openings on the right side.

Step 8:  Finish and trim off any excess threads.
