Anaïs Undies Pattern
Style, comfort and coverage in one tidy package, the Anaïs Undies are a versatile pattern designed to create a wardrobe of underwear you'll be delighted to wear all day long.
View A is a paneled brief with no side seam and good cheek coverage. Perfect for colour blocking or mixing and matching fabrics, it can be made in a high-rise or low-rise bikini style. View B is a slightly cheekier style designed to eliminate visible panty lines by doubling the back in mesh to create a highly comfortable and seamless effect.
All views have been drafted with and without seam allowances, so they can be made with your choice of fold-over or plush back elastic.

- Look for stretch fabrics with excellent recovery. They should contain at least 5% spandex, lycra or elastane, and have a minimum of 50% stretch. We suggest cotton spandex, bamboo/rayon spandex blends, stretch modal, swim lycra, stretch lace and stretch mesh. For breathability and comfort, use cotton, rayon or modal jersey for the crotch gusset.
- View A can be made using a variety of fabrics but we suggest sticking to light-mid weight knits for this style. You can use the same fabric for front, side and back, or have fun with fabric or colour mixing. We especially love stretch mesh or stretch lace along the side panel for a bit of peekaboo skin.
- Due to the seamless design of View B, the back panel must be made with stretch mesh, although you can use any of our suggested fabrics for the front panel. If you'd like to make an all mesh version, cut a double layer of mesh for the front if you'd like more coverage, or a single layer for less coverage.

How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.
Shipping + Returns
American customers: Packages in the US are shipped via USPS First Class and Priority Mail twice a week. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive.
Canadian customers: Your orders are sent via Canada Post letter or parcel post. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive, and wait up to 3 weeks before contacting us.
International customers: Estimated delivery dates are listed below the shipping price when you checkout. We have two possible services. International First Class is for packages under 2 kilos and takes approx 10-40 days to arrive depending on your location.

Most shipping services we offer come with a tracking number. This will be sent to you via email you once the order has been processed in our warehouse.
Given the huge volume of mail and the challenges that the pandemic, holiday season, and environmental conditions impose on the performance of the mail service, we ask you to please be patient with the delivery of your packages, and get in touch after 3 weeks for Canadian and US shipments, and 6 weeks for international shipments.
If the above mentioned waiting times have elapsed, please message us about your delay. We’ll be happy to work with you to figure out a solution.
