The Trixie Briefs have a higher rise at the back and full bum coverage — they’re star jump proof and the ultimate in everyday comfort, all while being a quick and satisfying make.

 

With classic or panelled options, you can make Trixie in your choice of a modern hipster brief or a 50s-inspired true high-waisted style (sitting above your belly button, at your natural waist).

It’s time to get adventurous with those knit fabric scraps, mixing and matching to your heart’s content. Instructions are included for finishing with fold over elastic (FOE) as well as lingerie elastic, making for a total of 8 different variations all within one pattern.

Based on the popular Nixie Briefs silhouette, Trixie is like a warm, comforting (and comfortable!) hug for your bum. Your new all-day, every-day brief.

The high-waist style are perfect for pairing with fit’n’flare dresses and high waisted skirts and pants. As they sit at the true waist, they would also make the perfect 50s bikini bottom when made up in a swim lycra as well as the perfect lounge pant paired with a cropped lacy dressing gown.

 

Skill Level

If the overlapping side curves of Nixie had you a little worried, Trixie will set your mind at ease.

Designed for Confident Beginners, Trixie Briefs are the perfect introduction to knits and elastic sewing. They’re small and quick, which means you can cut multiple pairs at one time, then build your knowledge and confidence with each pair made.

 

Fabric Options

The Trixie Briefs should be made with stable knit fabrics that have a good amount of stretch across the grain. A minimum of 30% stretch is recommended for best results as Trixie Briefs have built-in negative ease (i.e., they’re smaller than your actual measurements). A fabric with 4-way stretch is the best choice for maximum comfort.

Cotton/lycra (spandex/elastane) combinations work well for light-weight, breathable briefs, but other options include stretch lace/mesh, power mesh etc. Trixie is also the perfect bikini bottom when made up in swim lycra.

The Trixie Briefs were drafted using a 95% cotton 5% lycra spandex knit with a weight of 180GSM (grams per square metre).

I recommend using a breathable natural fabric like stretch cotton or bamboo for the gusset.
