Pattern Description: Underwear pattern for the entire family! Bikini panty for women and girls, lace thong for women, boxer brief and brief for men and boys, jockstrap for men.

Pattern Sizing:The kids sizes go from an 18"waist/20" hip to a 26.5" waist/34.5" hip for girls and 26.5"/32.5" hip for boys. The adult sizes go from a 27.25" waist/35.5" hip to 44" waist/53" hip for women and 27.5" waist/33.5" hip to 48" waist/51" hip for men. The children sizes include only the bikini panty for girls and brief and boxer short styles for boys because obviously the lace thong and jockstrap styles are not appropriate for children.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't really glance at them aside from checking a couple of line drawings and the elastic measurement.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Likes: This is a very versatile pattern! A huge range of sizes and for men as well as women and children. I really like how they structured their download - you only have to print a few pages for each view rather than having them spread out across multiple tiles.

Fabric Used:I made several pairs. Most were cotton/lycra, the green pairs were bamboo/lycra.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I just graded out a little bit at the waist to the next size up, since his hips are one size smaller than his waist. He said: "I can't feel them so they must fit good!"

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've made it 7 times so far so I guess you can say I highly recommend it . It is definitely more fun to sew when you use crazy prints like I did.

What a great collection! The boys at my previous job used to have 'crazy friday' and wear their most outrageous boxers and socks underneath very conservative suits. We all got to peek of course!

Cute! Crossing my fingers for your Marfy wedding dress. You are brave, but if anyone can do it, you can!
