      Great work. What kind of knit is it?

      its a kind of microfiver, but you can better use a high quality 100% cotton jersey or a jersey with 2-5% lycra/ elastan.

      Thankyou. Will keep an eye out at my local fabric shop. I have a feeling that he won’t care all that much as long as it’s ORANGE. ;)

    Have to say your a very brave man for modeling your underwear LOL. You have done a really lovely job and it is refreshing seeing people make there own underwear, why pay for a label when you can have a one of that is totally bespoke? … think I may just have to try it with my boys :)

      you are right, creating your own label is just fun, so I am happy that my machine can stitch letters. To get the right elastic isn’t easy, so I did it in the old fashion manner: to put the elastic in the upper edge.
      succes! Martin

      thank you!
      the pattern is selfmade, I used the drawing system Muller&Sohn from the Rundschau Verlag, Germany.
      like your creations, too.

    I love the idea of bespoke underwear, you have inspired me to make some for my husband, they look great.
