I bought this pattern years ago, I've used it so much i had to make copies.lol...my teenage son was the same way(when are you going to make me something mom..), they look just like store bought boxers....

Hey Norma, that's just what my DH is like too. Now he favors boxers since we live in a tropical climate; knits are too hot. I gotta try this one!

Kirianth, thank you for solving the problem - I have fixed it (I think). It's so good that we help each other!

Ah, it's good to know that someone else found the pattern ran large... maybe I will make a smaller size next time instead of taking in an inch at both sides! Norma, I think the pattern number is wrong; it's #404, not #603 -- that should fix your "where did those mittens come from?" problem :)

Hillary, I think this pattern would work for briefs, also - the legs are quite short on the pattern (I made them longer) and you could put elastic in the legs for briefs. Or even shorten the legs an inch - the pattern legs, as is, are only about 2" long.

Great looking boxers! I think maybe I should make some for dh but he keeps insisting he likes briefs, and boxers look easier to me :oP I too have a picky dh,; he doesn't wear the first pants I made for him(or the 2 prs of PJ's :o() but he actually wears the Burda denim shorts I just recently finished for him and says they're his favorites! So don't give up, there's hope. OTOH, there's more time to sew for you :D

Nice looking boxers. I like your label addition also. Are they custom made?

Sorry the "pattern photo" is not correct; I have never made mittens, nor do I have this pattern. I thought I followed directions to submit my photo, but evidently I did something incorrectly!!
