New Pattern Release: No Show Briefs

Posted by on

We are SO EXCITED about our newest pattern release: the No Show Briefs! These briefs are perfect for those who don't want to deal with visible panty lines under leggings, tights, and thin skirts but aren't really thong wearers. This is also our first pattern released in our new expanded size chart:

The NSB pattern covers sizes C-M and is suitable for even the most beginner sewists! They are on sale for $5 until Friday, August 30, so don't wait! Grab them here!

FABRIC:

It is best made with any non-roll knit fabric like nylon spandex that is thin, light weight and does NOT ROLL along the edges when stretched. Check to make sure you have at least 75% 4-way stretch. The Mist Nylon spandex from the new Greenstyle fabric line is absolutely perfect for these! You can also use some pretty lace trim on the waist to make them a little more fancy. 

FAST:

It only takes about 15-20 minutes to sew up and only about 1/2-5/8 of a yard of fabric depending on what size you sew.

FEATURES:

The No Show Brief pattern includes low, mid, and high rises cut lines along with a full tummy adjustment option on the pattern. The pattern also has an optional waistband and includes a regular brief and cheeky cut line so you can make them to your specific preference. Our fabulous team put them up to the most rigorous tests and it passed with flying colors! No shifting, bunching, and absolutely no show through! 

These pictures speak for themselves. They're TOTALLY INVISIBLE under even the lightest and tightest of leggings!

  • This is such an interesting pattern that I’ve acted pretty swiftly (for me) and have even got a muslin cut out and ready to go. I was inspired by the first off-site review I saw, which was a week or two ago at patternreview.com. It was so well-written, so full of advice and helpful photos that I bookmarked it to refer to when I began sewing the panties.

    Strangely, the review was removed within a couple of days. There is no reference to it on the site. There is a new review there now, written by a regular poster of Greenstyle reviews here. It is a very nice, capable review, but I can’t help wondering what happened to that first one. It always makes me a little sad when an excellent review simply disappears without explanation. I do hope that the bold and generous first reviewer wasn’t shamed or reproached in any way.
