This simple panty pattern will be your go-to panty since it disappears under your clothing. It’s simple design and simple construction make it perfect if you are just getting started in lingerie making.
I have been meaning to give you this sewing pattern for months now. Maybe even years. I know…….
But when it comes to something as intimate as your underwear, I wanted to be sure I got everything down right.
I wanted to be sure I was creating a sewing pattern that was quick and easy and actually disappears under your clothing. It actually is just as comfortable as my overpriced, department-store panties! No more panty lines, discomfort, or expensive trips to the mall. I’m so excited!
This project (like so many) started out with a discouraging trip to the mall.
I was standing in line at Victoria’s Secret with $100 of panties in my hand when it dawned on me that I was about to pay a fortune for less than half a yard of fabric.
I knew better than that!
Now that you have this super-simple sewing pattern, you can save the extra money too.
Think about it- for the price of one trip to the mall in panties alone, you can pay for a brand new sewing machine and start a whole new, creative outlet. (Check out my article on high-quality sewing machines for less than $150 here.)
So without further ado, let’s move on to the project!
For this tutorial, we’ll be using this multi-page, printable panties pattern from my sister-site, ModernSewingpatterns.com. You can print this underwear pattern out from any at-home printer and align the pattern using the notches and the numbered pages. Use tape to put the sewing pattern pieces. You can also see my complete guide on how to print, store, and use printable sewing patterns HERE.
You’ll also need some 4-way stretch fabric for this tutorial. I got mine from Minerva.com. You can tell your fabric is a 4-way stretch if it comes equally in every direction. This will make your seamless panties more comfortable when they are on.

How To Use This Panties Pattern To Make Your Own Underwear
To begin, fold your fabric in half and place the center front of your sewing pattern on the fold line. Use sharp pins to hold it in place before cutting it out.
Since we will be leaving the seams raw around the top and bottom of the panty (this helps to make them invisible under clothing since they won’t have bulky seams) I recommend using a rotary cutter to cut your pattern pieces out.
Quick Tip: Lace fabric can tend to get a bit slippery while you are cutting it, you may want to lay your fabric on a piece of tissue paper to prevent it from sliding around. You can also use more pins than usual to hold it in place for cutting.
This simple pattern only has two pieces to cut out so it’s great for using scrap pieces of fabric.
Once your pattern pieces are cut out, your crotch lining piece should line up perfectly with the center front of your panties.
Now we get to sew it together!
Fold your panties back together with the right sides facing each other and pin along the center back edge. Use either a narrow zig-zag stitch on a standard sewing machine or a serger to sew along the back edge at 1/4″ seam allowance.
For knit fabrics, use a ballpoint or stretch needle to prevent damage to your knits and prolong the life of your finished project.
After you’re done sewing and you’ve trimmed your treads, your panties should already be beginning to take shape. Now it’s time to install the crotch lining.
You’re going to take your crotch lining and put it in place with the right sides facing each other. Pin and sew along the sides, leaving the top and bottom edge open.
Believe it or not, your panties are almost done! they should look something like this at this point:
Your next step is to flip the lining right-side out to encase the seams of your crotch lining and prevent any rough edges from irritating you.
The final step in completing your panties is to line your panties up and sew along the bottom crotch edge.
Once your threads are trimmed, your new seamless panties are complete! You did it! And, in less than about ten minutes! Now you get to try them on, see how they fit and make some more!
