Make a duo of stylish and comfortable knickers, plus a co-ordinating laundry bag using this kit which includes all the fabrics, trims and notions you need.
This kit goes with the Iris pattern by Tilly and the Buttons. This project is great for confident beginners and those who want to try out new fabrics, trims and techniques. There is a choice of three waist heights and three leg heights, so you can make your perfect knicker shape.
Quantities included are based on the Tilly and the Buttons guidelines for larger sizes. Smaller sizes (UK 12 and below), and those making the low waist, high leg shape may be able to squeeze 2 pairs of knickers out of each piece of fabric, therefore making 4 knickers in total (more elastic would be needed for the additional knickers).
The knickers pictured here are the mid-waist, high-leg style - you can use this kit to make any style you like.
