Bones is a sewing teacher who has produced her own line of lingerie sewing patterns designed to aid sewers who have not been able to find comfortable, well-fitting lingerie in retail clothing stores and wish to sew their own lingerie. This practical book on sewing intimate apparel such as slips, bras, panties, and boxers teaches both lingerie design and how to modify a commercial pattern to insure a better fit.
