Iris by Tilly and the Buttons

The Design Iris by Tilly and the Buttons is the perfect pattern to learn to sew lingerie. It is a multi-style knickers pattern, created in collaboration with lingerie designer Evie La Lùve. Incredibly versatile, the waistline, leg and finishing options make a total of 36 combinations!

  • Mix and match low, mid or high leg and waistline options
  • Finish the waistline and leg openings with fold over elastic and/or narrow stretch lace
  • A perfect project for scrap-busting your fabric stash
  • Can be whipped up on a regular sewing machine

Recommended Fabrics
Main fabric: Light- to medium-weight stretch knit fabric with 40-60% 4-way stretch and good recovery, such as jersey, scuba, stretch mesh, stretch velvet.
Crotch lining: Small piece of cotton jersey, bamboo jersey or similar fabric with natural fibre content.
