Body Shaper - 816 (Downloadable)

Check out the review on PatternReview.com!

 

Note: This pattern is Multisized 8-24 (rather than the usual 4-22)

BODY SHAPER: This easy to construct, reversible body shaper has only two pattern pieces. Sewing a center back seam, leg insert seam and waistline seam is all it takes to makes this great body shaper. The waistline sits 2” above the natural waistline and the legs are 6” or so above the knee. The seam allowances are sandwiched in-between the two layers, so a smooth fit is achieved on both sides.

SUGGESTED FABRICS: Power mesh, cotton/ LYCRA jersey, rayon, bamboo and modal/ LYCRA jersey. Fabrics need at least 60% stretch, both lengthwise and crosswise grain. The more % of stretch the better, and the snappier the recovery of the fabric the more shaping it will accomplish.
