Silvena Boyshort PDF Sewing Pattern: stretch lace underwear
With the Silvena Boyshort, you can create sexy lace boyshorts with any width of stretch lace trim. Silvena can be made with only lace or a combination of lace and knit fabric, to create your desired rise length.
◊ The main pattern piece is marked in increments (quarter inches for Imperial and half centimeters for Metric) from leg opening to natural waist to create guidelines for cutting.
◊ Minimum length rises (7”/17.8cm for M sizes, 8”/20.3cm for W sizes) are marked as guidance. Boyshorts made in the minimum width lace are very low rise at center front and back. Wider lace width (or combination of lace and fabric) will create higher rise boyshorts.
◊ Style A Stretch lace boyshort.
◊ Style B Stretch lace and knit fabric boyshort with elastic waist finish.
◊ Requires straight, stretch and zigzag stitches.
Waist: 26-50” / 66-127cm
