Elodie Briefs panty PDF sewing pattern : mid-rise underwear for stretch knits
The Elodie Briefs are a perfect combination of comfort and feminine details. Basic briefs with a fully enclosed gusset get a sophisticated upgrade with sheer side panels and lace details.
Style options include lace overlays for both narrow and wide stretch lace trim, and side panels using wide stretch lace trim. With a comfortable fit, the mid-length rise and full coverage bottom make the Elodie Briefs an everyday staple for your lingerie drawer.
The gusset is longer in front than typical store-bought panties to provide extra protection and comfort. Can be sewn in a wide variety of knit fabrics, from cotton/spandex jersey, bamboo and rayon blend jerseys, to athletic knits and stretch lace.

Adventurous beginner. Instructions are fully illustrated, and pattern includes links for videos on sewing an enclosed gusset and working with lingerie elastics. You only need to know how to sew straight and zig-zag stitches.
Self fabric: Stretch knits with at least 40% stretch. Suggestions: Cotton/spandex jersey, rayon/spandex jersey, bamboo/spandex jersey, stretch mesh, stretch lace.
Contrast fabric: Any of the fabrics listed above. My samples used stretch mesh.
Gusset Lining: cotton jersey. If you don’t have any yardage, a men’s undershirt works well.
