I came across some “name” pants the other day that had a girdle-like panel across the front to help flatten the tummy. Although they were comfortable I didn’t buy them because they were cut too low for me ( that’s why I’m into sewing pants these days). Anyway, I did some searching online and saw that http://www.sewsassy.com/BraProducts/brafabric.html
has some powernet fabric that might do the trick. Has anyone constructed a power panel in pants yet and if so what did you use. I just find it so hot to wear a body shaper here in Florida when I need some flatness through my mid-section and I’m hoping this might work. For the time being I just might cut off the top of some shaping panty hose and give it try.
