The Wonder Undies pattern is a comfortable and easy-sew underwear pattern. Once you’ve tried Wonder Undies, you’ll never go back!
There are briefs and shorts, both of which can be either low or high rise. Choose between elastic or jersey cuffs/bands to finish the waist and legs.
An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish for some parts, but importantly, a sewing machine is all you need for all options.
Four way stretch jersey is best for Wonder Undies.

The enclosed gusset makes all the difference, so comfortable.. I will never be going back to shop bought.
I love making my own underwear, I love catprints, skullprints and, camo and leopard prints, but never can find a lot off underwear with them. And store bought are nver that comfy. I love ther wonder undies, i also use them for lounging, with a big oversized shirt i borrowed of the boyfriend. I have spd, so fabrics and seams can be an issue with a lot of clothes, but not with these. The dont pinch or anything, you forget you are wearing them!

Fabulous pattern, I absolutely love these undies, so comfortable to wear I prefer them to bought ones and have now made several pairs. I prefer the standard briefs shape but I’ve also made the shorts style with my teenage grand daughter., her first time using the serger.

These Undies really are a Wonder. Simple to make, comfortable to wear, and easily customizable in my favorite prints. I prefer them to store-bought, as well. Easy to make a quick pair or to make a batch of them all at once.

I’ve only make 1 pair to try out the pattern at the moment and very comfy, easy to follow instructions – this is a winner! I will be sizing up on my next pair, just waiting to get more CL scraps for making more.

ALWAYS MEASURE YOURSELF, even if you THINK YOU KNOW your measurements.!
This is my first time doing wonder undies. I have been using a different branded pattern up until now. I made the mistake of not measuring! So I did a size medium, bikini cut (hip 105cm.) I normally wear a size L full rise. My fabric was 220g 95/5 cotton spandex
I naturally have a wide pudendal region, so I did a Large size crotch and also widened the front crotch by 1/8″ either side tapering to the centre crotch, and did the same on the corresponding front pattern piece. I wish I could add photos here to show you the fit. I am glad I made those changes., in future, I will cut a LARGE for the body to get the bum coverage right, and
and LARGE for the crotch of the undies (but keep the extra widith. in the front crotch)., and use medium bands. I have chunky thighs, and did not find smaller bands an issue at all. Just my personal preference:; I would lower the centre rise by about an inch, to better fit my +apron”, it would also work well as a maternity hack I would think! I actually liked the width of the mediium and found no issue with that. in fitting my body. (I have narrow hips and a teeny tiny bum!, but bigger everywhere else) Definitely, will be making again.
Super fun and fast to make! I love the fit – made an XL high rise briefs with bands. So comfortable and pretty 🙂
Thank you – I will certainly be whipping up more pairs over the weeks to come.
