    Hi Beckie - try http://www.bramakers.com   I've ordered their bra pattern and they also have patterns for merry widows, camisoles, etc. 

    The pictures take a little while to load as the site is very full of information but it's worth it.  AND the prices are in Canadian dollars (I'm a Canuck) so that might help you too.  They seem to be a responsible company and have answered my emails promptly etc.  Good luck!

    Hi Beckie,

    (butting in again from the Cooks) My first thought was, if you are looking for underpants as an accessory, do you have a fave you could make a pattern after? I ran across some wonderful LA Gear pants and wish I'd bought every one ($1 ea). These are high on (off) the hip but containing the rear, w/a 1-1/2" waistband and so well-designed (for my body) that I don't need much give in the fabric, and the waistband holds in my tummy. (LOL but I stretched them out so will be trying new fabrics and a more durable elastic and probably giving to my seamstress!)

    It's so basic, and you can really play w/fabric and embellishments, and could make the sides (the area where the elastic meets the side fabric front/back points) w/velcro, buttons, tiny zippers, whatever, or cover the elastic w/lace, etc.

    For lingerie in general, you don't even need much of a pattern if you like how you look (or whomever who are designing this for) in a freeform, gauzy caftan (cut a horizontal or T-slit for head and neck, or weave ribbons to define an empire waist), or add a satin peplum (ruffle it to accentuate hips) on a skinny T, dripping w/ribbons, and decorated w/or w/out studs or faux gems, etc.

    If you are going to sleep in it, do test the fabric for how well you like the feel of it. I'm no good because my faves are old T-shirts :) but I love to see the frilly, special stuff.

      Thanks for your response!  I think I am going to have to design something along those lines myself.  This is not for me or even for anyone is particular.  I design and sell NFL thongs with matching Bras, on Ebay.  I had this idea of making this cute Peek a Boo nighty with the NFL print on the breast part, and making the rest out of some kind of stretchy sheer material, and maybe have a ribbon closure, and trim it with the teams co-ordinating colored ribbon.  Of course the outfit would follow with a matching thong. (if you can get the visual) LOL!

      Thanks for the ideas!!!  I welcome more!!

        Have you looked at a book entitled "Lingerie - original designs for you to make", edited by Jack Angell, published by David & Charles (UK), 1981. ISBN 0-7153-8174-1.

        This book gives scale patterns for (among others):

        - nightshirt

        - nightie & negligé

        - silk pyjamas

        - negligé

        - camisole

        - petticoat

        - lace bra & briefs

        - waist slip

        The petticoat is a fitted princess line slip that might be useable for what you want.

        Try second-hand on-line bookshops, or send me a mail if you'd like me to scan this and mail it to you.

    Hi Beckie,

    on the subject of books: you might also look at "Sewing Lingerie that Fits." I'm a big fan. Also, have you tried hitting http://www.sewingpatterns.com and doing a search? I did a quick search and saw some Kwik Sew patterns that (with a few easy alterations) sound like what you're looking for.
