Once more, I’m very excited to present these 3 new patterns to you.
They’ve been ready for a long time: I’ve been designing them last summer, testing them throughout the fall and wearing them for several weeks. I finally validated the basis size versions..
Guillaume photographed them on November.
Then, my two testing teams (one for the sizes from 32 to 50, the other one for the sizes from 52 to 64) read again, corrected and enhanced my work.
Today these patterns are ready to be unveiled.
PDF patterns available for sizes from 32 to 50 and from 46 to 64
The patterns embed my layer system: you chose the size (or sizes) you print.
You also chose whether you print with or without seam allowance!
When designing these models, I was trying to use lace to make very feminine lingerie. You can sew matching sets with different bottoms. The panties are perfect for beginners: they require very few supplies and can be sewn very fast.
Plume panties, as light as a… plume!

Plume can be sewn very fast, and is also a perfect choice for beginners. The tutorial was carefully prepared so that anyone can sew it easily.
In the booklet, I’ll find how to add a fabric triangle in the back center in case the lace you use wouldn’t be wide enough (it’s quite common with large sizes).
The lace part of the back goes up to the front enhancing its feminity!
The crotch seams are hidden: your panties are worthy the fashion industry!

Promesse can be sewn very fast.
For this model as well, every crotch seam is hidden.
The fabric part goes higher enough on the front (and on the back) to prevent the transparent lace from showing what must be kept hidden 😉
Tralala le tanga

The front of Tralala is designed to be made of fabrics (no lace) so that anything so should be hidden will be kept hidden.
In the Tralala sewing guide, you’ll find 2 different ways to sew the waistband: one with a scalloped lace elastic band (the black version above) and one with a large elastic band (the white version).
I must tell you I’m having a nice top tested to go with Tralala, Plume and Promesse (some of you already asked me about it since you’ve can already discover some of the possible variations watching the photos above 😉
What you’ll get when downloading your pattern
1) An interactive user guide showing many digital schemas (click HERE to learn more)
You’ll also learn how to use patterns with layers, how to set your printer…
2) The pattern in an A4/US letter format PDF that you can print at home.
The size lines are made of different colors but also different patterns: you can print them B&W without any problem!
What’s fun with digital files is that as soon as you order them, you can print them and sew right away!
Don’t worry: for underwear, you only need to print a few pages.
The pattern embeds layers making it possible to choose precisely which size you want to print.
The pattern can be printed with or without seam allowance: thanks to the layer system, you choose what you want to print!
If you need to know more about the Étoffe Malicieuse’s patterns specificities, you can read this article on my blog.
3) A lace cutting method sheet
4) A “dealing with fabric elasticity” method sheet
5) A “How to make a tie with lace?” method sheet
Contrary to what one might think a priori, you’ll only need a standard sewing machine (making zigzag stitches or, even better, stretch stitches). The assembling was designed keeping in mind all those of you who don’t have a serger: all the crotch seam allowance are hidden. You’ll eventually get panties that are totally worthy of professional seamstresses.
The assembling instructions were written to be as clear as possible. They’ll guide you step by step with many illustrations making it possible for you to sew your first panties, even if you’re a starter.
The 3 patterns should be sewn with stretch fabric. There are many options:
fine lycra, elastic tulle, tulle élastique, cotton jersey, stretch lace…
The fabrics should be about 50% elastic in both directions.
The lace must be elastic.
Also, put aside a scrap piece of cotton jersey you’ll use for the crotch lining.
Once again, I thank Guillaume for his wonderful shots. They highlight so well my work.
Guillaume is one of these persons who take the time to do things, to listen, to understand what you’re looking for, the emotions you want to share through the photos.
If you want to discover his work more deeply : GUILLAUME ESTEVE
All the shots were taken in his studio.
Thanks as well to S. for her patience during this long shooting session and for her confidence towards the garments I submitted to her.
The patterns have been tested, the explanations were read and read again…
A big thank you to my wonderful testing team (among which some underwear sewing novices are hiding and they met the challenge! Well done girls!)
If you just can’t choose between the three patterns, you can get a low-price 3-pattern pack:
Of course you can get each pattern on its own:
Don’t forget to use hashtags #patronboheme, #patronetoffemalicieuse on Instagram so that I can see your makings.
I’m eager to know what you’ll think of these three patterns. I really hope you’ll like them.
Have a nice day!
