Santorini girl's beach panties sewing pattern - sewing tutorial

Before sewing

To sew this panties choose stretchy fabrics like biflex, light-weight cotton lycra jersey.

Use serger (overlock) to sew this panties. In case you don’t have serger, replace it with a stretch stitch or zigzag stitch on the sewing machine.

While sewing we recommend to baste the details together before stitching to avoid displacement of the upper fabric.
