I *just* bought this pattern, and I can't wait to sew it up!! All of them look great and are so fun! DH is not adventurous, shall we say, (lol) in shirt fabric but doesn't mind me picking fun fabrics for boxer shorts. He just decided to switch from regular underwear~yah! The regular ones I also made from a KS pattern out of camo knit fabric hehe. But now they are falling apart, so time to sew some new ones. Thanks for the great review!

I am glad to see this review with an update. Just yesterday, I cut out a test pair using this pattern.

Great boxers - I particularly like how you did the waist elastic. I have a pattern I use for my hubby, but I think I may have to buy this one - really like how yours turned out.

Fun review, I've been thinking about buying the KS boxer pattern because it IS a KS pattern - and obviously tried and true!

well gee, I kind of wish I was married so I could make up anniversary gift rules like you did. lol Too funny. Great boxers, they look professionally made.

These look so great. I have a couple of sons and also a son-in-law that love for me to make boxers for them.... so fun to match fabrics with their personalities! The pattern I have always used is the "First Choice Boxers" by Timber Lane Press. That pattern is a five panel boxer pattern. Two of my other sons don't care for the five panel type. This Kwik-sew pattern looks like it might be a good one for them. I love your fabric choices! I think your Anniversary gift was a very fun one.

Popo, I don't know how this one would work with knits, but I do know that KS makes a pattern for knit boxers. I LOVE their basic patterns and would encourage you to try it out-- let me know how it does if you use it!

Do you think this pattern would work well with knit fabrics? DS will only wear knit boxers. Would you make a smaller size or just use the same size?

Oh no, too funny! The boxers are great but the visual of DH wearing them backwards is hysterical. Wonder how comfortable it was, sitting that day. And your evaluation of the proper 14th anniversary gift was ... inspired. Congratulations on anniversary, CS machine! -Lily

I orderd my tags form a lady on ebay (NAYY)-- they are printed, not woven, but also are quite affordable!

Cindy - you just crack me up! The boxers look great, and I love your tag. Did you make it?

Ha Ha! Love the anniversary where is it again? Congrats on the CS machine. You will love it. And which Wal-Mart here still has fabric?

Ok. That Coverstitch bit is pretty funny. Congratulations on your anniversary. And, I'm sorry about the lucky underwear.

Makes me wish my DH was a boxer instead of brief man! Fun review! I enjoy your sense of humor!

I never dreamed a boxer short review could be so entertaining. Great job on these. You seem to be really enjoying your new CS machine.

Love the boxers! I usually use Simplicity 9958 so will give this pattern a try! And I always use my CS machine to hem boxers - they look so professional that way!
