Cashmerette Club: Meet the Radcliffe Undies, the Club pattern for August!


Meet this month’s Cashmerette Club pattern, the Radcliffe Undies! The Radcliffe is a cute and comfortable underwear pattern with seamless sides, optional paneling, and multiple rise heights and finish options. Join Cashmerette Club for as little as $9 a month to get this pattern.

When your clothes fit well and feel comfortable, everything about your day becomes that much easier and better. And it all starts with the foundation: undergarments that feel good on your skin and cover you in the way you want.

Thoughtfully designed for curves, the Radcliffe Undies pattern brings comfort and sexiness to your wardrobe in a neat little package. The Radcliffe features seamless sides, optional fabric or lace paneling, and three rise height options: high rise, mid-rise, and bikini rise.

With multiple leg and waist finish options, you can craft your perfect pair of undies from over a dozen possible combinations! This pattern comes in sizes 0-32 and is available exclusively to Cashmerette Club members.

How to choose your Radcliffe size

Before starting your Radcliffe, you’ll want to measure yourself and choose your size. This is done in a slightly different way from our other patterns.

Make sure to measure yourself while wearing only underwear. Take your measurements while standing, and measure your hip at the widest point above your crotch. (Depending on your hip curve, this may or may not be where you normally measure your hips.) Measure your waist at the narrowest point.

Then, choose your size based on your hip measurement. If your waist size is different to your hip size (for example, if your waist is a 16 and your hips are a 14), then you can either grade between sizes, or simply use your hip size for the whole pattern but cut the waist elastic to match your waist size.

Choose from dozens of Radcliffe kits!

Finding fabric for your first Radcliffe is a breeze with over 70 Radcliffe options, available from 8 shops around the world!

We got great feedback from you about our Willowdale Bra kits, so we’ve partnered up again with your favorite lingerie supply shops to bring your Radcliffe kits that include everything you need to make a Radcliffe. These kits are sold by the shops on their websites, which means you can shop locally and save on shipping and fees.
