Pattern Description: This is Jalie's pattern 3242, designed by Jeanne Binet, copyrighted 2012. It's for men's, women's, & kids' underwear. "A," "B," & "C" are for women & girls. "D," "E,", & "F" aer for men & boys. A: Low-waist bikini with enclosed elastic at waist & leg openings. B: High-waist bikini. C: Lace-waist G-string. D: Low-waist briefs with double-layer contour pouch, exposed waistband, and binding at leg openings. E: Low-waist trunks/boxer-briefs with double-layer contour pouch, exposed elastic waistband, and hemmed leg openings. F: Jockstrap. I made the briefs "D."

Pattern Sizing: The pattern comes in Jalie sizes D-FF. I made size AA (men's waist size 38).

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? They were the same style but a different color.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were reasonably easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that it makes a handsome pair of briefs. I have no actual dislikes.

Fabric Used: Black cotton jersey, the reason being is that I liked the fabric.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I followed the instructions to the letter.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I plan to make more briefs & jockstraps from the pattern. Yes, I'd recommend it to others.

Conclusion: The briefs were great fun to make. The pattern's a keeper.
