Dress up your SKIMPY with an adorable frilly edge and bow. The pattern and instructions for the optional frill can be downloaded right here for free. PDF download no longer available. The SKIMPY knicker takes just a few hours to make and the pattern is available in sizes 8-14 from our Etsy shop.
We made our SKIMPY in a Liberty print fabric found at Tessuti in Melbourne called Eliza in the colour cerise.
For the bow at the front cut a strip of fabric 6cm wide and 11cm long. Make a double roll top stitched edge along both long sides and one end, then run a gathering stitch down the middle. Pull into a frill and top stitch the gathering in place. Roll into a bow with the unfinished edge in the centre, secure the bow and then top stitch to the front of your knickers.
