Buy the Manhattan Briefs sewing pattern from Fitiyoo. Retro or super modern style? The choice is yours! The Manhattan high-waisted briefs pattern includes two versions.

Version A, with its simple side yokes, can be sewn from a single fabric, or with different fabrics, such as mesh tulle. Seduction guaranteed!

Version B is more technical to sew because of the gathers on the sides, but the result is worth the difficulty!
