Scrundlewear

Just bought the Scrundlewear pattern from the One Stitch Upon a Time Etsy Store.

Two patterns are included: Briefs and Boyshorts. Each pattern has three options: Elastic, Fold Over Elastic, and Knit Waistband (No Elastic). Other reviewers have said that the knit waistband is the most comfortable.

One great thing about the pattern: all pattern pieces are on ONE PAGE. And the seller has set it up so you can print out the lines for just one size. Both the brief and boyshort pattern are on the same page.

Below is for size LARGE:

MATERIALS:

1/2 yard cotton lycra (95/5 min 50% 4 way stretch) [for panty] based on 56 in wide fabric
1/4 yard cotton lycra (95/5 min 50% 4 way stretch) [for waistband] based on 56 in wide fabric

CUT waistband: 4 in x 27.5 in = size of waistband

CUT leg opening x 2: 3 in x 20.75 in = size of leg opening for BRIEF

OR

CUT leg opening x 2: 3 in x 19.75 in = size of leg opening for BOYSHORTS

Direction of stretch goes with the larger measurement

Seam allowance: ½ in (taken into account on pattern)

PIECES TO CUT OUT:

1 front (along fold)
1 back (along fold)
1 liner (along fold)

HOW TO ATTACH THE LINER

  1. Front piece, right side up.
  2. Back piece, right side down. Place exactly on top of front piece in step 1.
  3. Line up side seams. Pin.
  4. Put liner on top of wrong side of back piece. The side with the tapered cut (no flares!) Is the one that is at the bottom.
  5. Your stitch goes where the taper starts. You will stitch a ½ in seam through three layers.
  6. Once that is done, you can sew up the side seams on both sides.
  7. Take the pins out of the crotch and side seams.
  8. Now the liner kind of flops around. SUAT says you could zig zag stitch the end of that floppy side to neaten it if you want. Not sure why, it doesn’t get tucked under to finish or anything.
  9. With the crotch of the pany facing you, and the right side of the liner facing you, run a zig zag stitch from the floppy liner to the one side of the panty. You are just going through the one panty layer here, not two.
  10. Top stitch if you like. It’s not really necessary. Done and done.

WAIST AND LEG BANDS

  1. Sew the ends of the waistband together. Zig zag stitch. Now it’s a big circle. Do the same for the leg bands.
  2. FOLD THE WAIST BAND IN HALF, wrong sides facing.
  3. Pin the waist band to the panty at the front back and two sides. Make sure the fourths are even. Then add more pins to secure. Make sure the pins are positioned so they do NOT have to be removed when sewing (parallel to the waistband, and about an inch inward).
  4. Small zig zag around. You are sewing through the one panty layer (front and back) and two waist band layers (because it is folded in half). This is NOT like with a skirt where you go through one side of the waistband and then do the other separately. Caution!
  5. Top stitch if you like. It’s not really necessary. Done and done.
  6. Do same for leg bands.
  7. Finished!!
