To create these lace knickers I bought I simple pair of lycra knickers with a similar shape to what I wanted my to be. I then cut into each panel and side seams. By doing this I could lay out each piece and adjust them to my ideal shape and size. I made all the front panels bigger by 2cm as I was using a Lycra pattern and was going to be using cotton lining and lace, and as these have no stretch I needed to add to the original measurements. i kept the back pattern the same as used my own nude lycra for the piece fitting over the bottom as this needed stretch for shape.
