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.

    Thanks for the pattern! I really like the green ones. I don’t have a man in my life, but I have some boys I can sew for. We’ll see how they like this.

    In the 1980s my DD and her friends wore men’s boxers as shorts, PJ bottoms with a tee shirt on top, etc. Thanks for sharing your pattern and directions. Fortunate friend to have you as a sewing friend. Nehmah
