So, I found all these cute coupons in my fabric shop… I thought, what decent clothe could I make out of it?
And well, the only answer was: boxers for my boyfriend! (Unfortunately, he won’t pose…)
I tried to figure out the pattern from some undies of his, and then I improved it with each new piece.
The first one was for Valentine’s day, with the little hearts.
Then I made the green one, for his birthday (to wear on Paddy’s day!), trying a different technique for the elastic.
Then I made one blue with little yellow ducks, that is so cute, but I couldn’t find it!
And the last one was the red one with the lips. This one had no defects! So I finally corrected the pattern and did my best to download it here.
I really like sewing for my boyfriend, and these are easy and fun to make!
You can also use the pattern to make pyjama shorts.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
