Our special maternity underwear!  These are over-the-belly with ruched sides.  They have full butt coverage - but if you want something more sexy, there's a tanga version too!  Like our other Bum Huggers, these are designed to have elastic-free leg openings.

Special supplies needed:  ¼” elastic for the waistband.

About our Patterns


We aim for inclusive patterns that fit all bodies. If you don't see your size on this pattern, send us a message and we'll add it in!

Our size charts offer both metric and imperial measurements.

Seam Allowance

All of our patterns have a standard, 3/8" or 1 cm seam allowance.

Print Internationally

Our tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!

Trimless Tiles

We designed our tiles to save paper and be easy to assemble. Place the guidelines on top of each other and tape or glue. The letter layer has solid guidelines with a star in each corner. The A4 layer has dashed guidelines with a circle in each corner. Each page has a number, and the tutorial has an assembly chart.

All of our files offer layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.

Copyshop Printing

A0 pages are 33.25" by 60" and are printable at most copyshops. We design ours to be printable in black and white. There are no passwords on any of our files. Our A0 files have layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.

Projector Optimized Files

Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.

All of our patterns are drafted digitally and tested with a projector in our paper-free studio.

Video + Picture Tutorial

We use pictures in our tutorials, not line drawings. We add in videos of steps that testers have a hard time understanding.


Our tutorial has a table of contents, along with bookmarks. This allows you to quickly get to the page you need.


When a pattern is updated, you will get an email notification. We allow our testers access to our entire pattern catalog, which means we get continual feedback on our patterns.

Download Instructions

Each download contains a zipped (compressed) file, for downloading all the files at once.  Download the .zip file, right click on the file and select "extract all". 

We also include each file individually, if you wish to download each file separately.
