The Tailoress PDF Sewing Patterns - Lingerie Construction Method

This is the method I have found best so far, I hope it works for you too!

These are mainly created using the sewing machine, not with hand-stitching as it is much more durable. Saying that, should you wish to incorporate some delicate lace or appliqué, hand-stitching would be most appropriate. I do like to attach the straps and embellishments such as bows by hand though, to avoid stitching on the right side of the garment.

Use the lingerie block to draft your patterns from. Use one of the below books for the instructions.
