Bum Huggers PERIOD Shorties
Bum Huggers PERIOD Shorties
Period panties were a pain in the butt to sew before this pattern came along! The outer panty is just one cut of fabric. Stick the core on top, sew it down, and you're practically done.
We've included lots of information to help you make leakproof panties that fit, on the first try. There are 7 core combinations for various flows. An extensive materials chart that includes links to some hard to find fabrics, and has some household materials if you want to get started right away. We added stepper and keyhole templates for super heavy flow.
You can even make a cloth pad that is custom shaped to your panty!
Comes with three versions. Version A is super high rise with a wider than usual gusset. Version B is high rise with a more average gusset width. Version C is a high rise tanga panty!
Skill Level: Suitable for beginners!
Fabric: Horizontal stretch of 60%. Vertical stretch is not necessary, but will make your panty more comfortable when sitting. Bamboo/spandex, merino wool rib knit, merino/spandex, cotton/spandex. The core can be made from non-stretch fabrics.

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 tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!
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.
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.
Projector Optimized Files
Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.
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. Since we are a newer pattern company, we are updating several times a year as our skills improve.
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.
