Comfy boy-leg undies

One of my New Year resolutions this year is to buy no new clothes. Which prompted me to do something I’ve been meaning to try for ages, and draft up a pattern to make my own undies!

These may look quite big, but it’s due to the style. They’re a hipster boy-leg style, which makes them super-comfy, they don’t ride up, and no dreaded VPL. (Which makes for a fantastic pair of knickers, in my opinion. ;-)

I quite like playing around with clashing patterns (especially for garments that most people won’t see!), and I actually quite like the result of the stripes with the floral (although I do admit that the majority of people probably won’t like it!).

Material Notes

Stretch poly-cotton blends.




Garment Type
Cotton, Blends

    Sorry for the delay in replying! :-/

    The pattern was based on another pair of undies I have, and then modified slightly. I haven’t tried putting a pattern up on here before, but will have a play around this weekend and see if I can get it loaded up for you. :-)

    These are brilliant! Imo, the fabrics work very well together because they are so different in pattern and colour. Did you just make a pattern from an existing pair of undies?

    Are ya gonna share the pattern you made? They look cute, but comfort is the most important for undies, in my opinion.
