Go Shorties and Cami
£12.00 – £19.00
Buy the Go Shorties and Cami sewing pattern from Madeit Patterns. No butts about it, when it comes to underwear, comfort is key. Swap your cheeky, wedgie-inducing knickers for a pair of practical, old-school, full bum coverage, grandma-approved pants. Pair your shorties with this close-fitting, classic camisole – an everyday, year-round, versatile essential. Wear the camisole on its own in the warm weather or as a layer beneath your Hug Hoodie during the colder months.

VIEW A is most suitable for underwear and sleepwear.
VIEW B SHORTIES sit at the top hip and feature colour blocking, leg bands and an enclosed elastic waistband or a wide exposed elastic waistband.
VIEW B CAMI features colour blocking, and the neckline and straps are finished using self-fabric. It has the option to add a built-in bra and the option for adjustable straps.
