The column skirt is a slimming silhouette that looks great on everyone! Consider wearing this skirt instead of shorts or pants - you'll be pleasantly surprised how versatile and comfortable it is for all seasons! You can make it short or maxi length, or use the templates for a high/low shaped hem style. The Column Skirt features a comfortable 1 1/2" yoga-style elastic waistband that will fit perfectly. It is smooth at the waist, with no darts or gathering, and falls straight to the knees or ankle.

Pamela's Patterns - Smoothing Shapewear #118
SKU: ULC6175

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 breathe 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.

Underbust Cami:

What makes this cami special? You can wear your own well-fitting bra! It doesn't change your 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 60" wide, medium weight (at least 5.5 oz) nylon lycra
  • 5/8 yard 54"-60" wide, medium weight power net
  • 1 3/4 yard 3/8"-5/8" wide, picot edge (plain or felt back) elastic

Hollywood Undies:

The high waist and generous leg openings prevent the skin denting causted 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 60" wide, medium weight (at least 5.5 oz) nylon lycra
  • 1/2 yard 54"-60" wide, medium weight power net
  • 6"x6" 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

The Hollywood 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 60" wide, medium weight (at least 5.5 oz) nylon lycra
  • 1/3 yard 54"-60" wide, medium weight power net
  • 1/2 yard 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)
