Based in the California, Alexandra Anissa is an independent lingerie label handcrafting dreamy intimates to order from their cosy pink studio. Known for her provocative-yet-ultra-feminine aesthetic, each piece is handmade by the designer herself. From pattern grading, cutting, sewing and packaging – all orders are done with her immaculately-polished hands. Alexandrea Anissa believes lingerie is for everybody and every body, so all the her designs are available in sizes XXS – 5X (in UK sizes this ranges from about a 6-24).
Last week the label launched their very first lingerie pattern – the Valerie High Waist Panty. This classic and super cute design is ideal for the novice lingerie sewer and I couldn’t wait to test it out.
The pattern was delivered by PDF and pretty easy to construct. If you are making multiple sizes I suggest tracing the pattern rather than cutting from the original, this will save A LOT of time as printing and assembly can be tedious and time-consuming. Directions are simple and easy to follow – from cutting to completion it should take no longer than a couple of hours.
If you’re a fan of comfort and retro knickers, this is the perfect pattern to introduce you into the world of lingerie construction…
