Bye-Bye Back, Waist, Tummy and Hip Fluff - Hello to a Smoother You!

Modern shapewear doesn't have to be torturous - that is, if you make your own! Clothing will fit better, hang better, look better - and you"ll still be able to breather and be comfortable. Reducing shapewear squishes body "fluff" to a new location, but Smoothing Shapewear will do just what it says - make you look smoother. The Secret? Pamela's Power Panels! Finally - you can have shapewear that is simple to fit and inexpensive to make.

The Studio at Pamela's Patterns carries a small supply of fabrics needed for the Shapewear in the colors nude and black. Contact Pamela for more info: pamela@pamelaspatterns.com

Virtual Workshop
An optional Virtual Workshop is available to purchase with this pattern (or standalone if you already have the pattern). Your Virtual Workshop will be emailed to you after your order is complete. A Virtual Workshop is like taking an in-person workshop with Pamela – enjoy!

Underbust

What makes this cami special? You can wear you own well-fitting bra! It doesn't change bra size or shape, but will smooth out the fluff on your back and the scallops on your sides and tummy.

Suggested Fabrics and Notions:

  • 2/3 yard of 60" wide, medium weight (at least 5.5 oz.) nylon lycra
  • 5/8 yard of 54"-60" wide, medium weight power net
  • 4-1/2 yard 3/8"-5/8" wide, picot edge (plain or felt back) elastic
Undies

The high waist and generous leg openings prevent the skin denting caused by elastic. The undies are created from 4 shaped panels, guaranteed to make you look smooth - and they won't ride up. Add power panels just where you need the extra support - front, back, sides or on every panel!

Suggested Fabrics and Notions:

  • 1/2 yard of 60" wide, medium weight (at least 5.5 oz) nylon lycra
  • 1/2 yard of 54"-60" wide, medium weight power net
  • 6"x 6" scrap cotton/blend knit for the crotch liner
  • 2 3/4 yard 3/8" - 5/8" wide, picot edge (plain or felt back) elastic
  • *Everyday Undies - use any knit fabric or stretch lace
Slip

We've all tried them - the body shaping slips that, after a short time, bunch around your waist - ugh! The bottom portion of this slip is made from tricot slip fabric that will stay where it's supposed to - under your clothing! And you'll still get the control you need in the waist, tummy and high hip areas.

Suggested Fabrics and Notions:

  • 1/3 yard of 60" wide, medium weight (at least 5.5 oz) nylon lycra
  • 1/3 yard of 54"-60" wide, medium weight power net
  • 1/2 yard of 60" wide, nylon tricot
  • 1 1/4 yard 3/8"-5/8" wide, picot edge (plain or felt back) elastic
  • 1 1/2 yard 1"-3" wide, stretch lace (optional)
