From Hari Ito Lingerie:

The Merle Panties are the perfect template for your favorite stretch laces! A quick and simple make, you can whip up a bunch of Merle panties in no time. Merle is a cheeky panty with a seamless front and a center back seam that hugs your bottom.

Merle only requires two pattern pieces and can be made with as few as six passes under your sewing machine. Merle was designed to take advantage of the full width of your stretch lace band, so experiment with different widths for a totally new look! You can also easily make Merle in any of your favorite stretch fabrics and finish the edges with your favourite elastics.

Skill level: Merle is a beginner pattern recommended for all sewists. Construction is simple, although you may wish to have some prior experience with sewing stretch lace and elastics.

Sizes: The Merle panties are available in sizes 32-52. For more information on this pattern’s sizing, see the sizing chart in the photos.
