Thanks for the nice comments. Most people find it strange, but I think customizing underwear so it's really comfortable is one of the best things about sewing! To get the bottom of the leg just right, you can cut it a bit wider and longer than you think he needs, then adjust on him and mark the changes on the pattern. I think you could just leave the edge raw on power dry for the least bulk, but I have an aversion to unfinished edges. I should warn you, if you start making long underwear for a man he'll want more...

I also appreciate your insights on the KS (which I have) & Jalie pattern (waiting by the mailbox for it). I will have to play with the serger and ask DH how he'd like the bottom hem/cuff done - sometimes they can rub inside of a ski boot if there is bulk. Thanks! great review!

Tessa, Thanks for this timely review! I have the pattern and some powerdry all ready to cut and sew. I'm glad you explained the difference between this pattern and the Jalie.

Tessa, Thank you for the review. I purchased the KS pattern based on your Jalie review because I wanted to use power dry. My dh has requested the same changes (no cuffs or front opening) so the review is very helpful. Maybe I'll get started on these....
