From Tilly and the Buttons:


Learn to sew your own undies with this multi-style knickers pattern, created in collaboration with our favourite lingerie designer Evie La Lùve.

The step-by-step photo instructions and helpful tips make this a great project for lingerie novices.

Incredibly versatile, the mix-and-match sewing pattern includes a choice of low, mid and high legs and waistlines. They can be finished with fold over elastic and/or narrow stretch lace, depending on your style, making a total of 36 combinations!


A pleasure to sew, and a perfect scrap busting project, you can whip them up on a regular sewing machine. Once you’ve made your first pair, you’ll be hooked!

Iris includes Tilly and the Buttons' award-winning beginner-friendly instructions, with colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
