Description

I needed new underwear, so I decided to take out some time and make a bunch. I ended up making 25 so for a while I felt like I was working in a sweatshop, but I’m pleased with the results.

Material Notes

Anything that has a bit of stretch to it and feels comfortable to the skin goes. The elastic I got a while ago [see: http://sartorialdiy.com/post/4254641196/custom-elastic-band-from-haining-thrive-braids]

      haha, it got a bit boring, but now it’s pretty awesome to be able to wake up every morning and pick one of my own boxers to wear :)

    Love the colors! My hubby would love these. Is there a patter you would be willing to share or did you use a pair that fit you well? I have a hard time making a pattern from ready made items sometimes, just can’t figure it out. Great job!!! And you saved so much $$$, mens underwear, especially boxer briefs are pricey! Happy Sewing!
