Great Fit

This pattern fit me well without any adjustments whatsoever. Very east to sew. It's a good pattern for me because I hate elastic at my legs in my underwear! I will make more of these after my vacation.

Essence classic shorties review.

Easy enough to put together for a beginner. I have only tried the banded waist option using cotton spandex and hemmed leg option in both med rise and low rise. I like the way they turned out.

Essence undies

I have made six of these. I’m usually size 16 but I got a better fit by sizing down. I have made them in bamboo and also a good quality cotton knit. They need 4 way stretch. I have found the stretch lace finish on the legs the easiest

Love the fit

The Essence shorties fit very well. I sewed the hemmed version. Many more will follow.

Essence shorties

Super Super comfy - made mine with 4 way stretch and I used the Kiki contour band in place of the in pattern band
