Pattern Description: This is a 3 piece boxer pattern. It has a fly front and saddle seat. I cut apart a pair of boxers bought from JCPennys about 25 years ago and made my pattern off of them.
Pattern:old ones cut out
Pattern Sizing: My guess is a mans large.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? They look similar to what I remember but I cut apart the old boxers about 20 years ago so, I'm not sure.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The construction is very simple so, self explanatory to anyone who has done a fair amount of sewing.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like this pattern because the saddle seat is more comfy than the ones with a center back seam.
Fabric Used: 100% cotton; repurposed from a mans shirt!
Other shirt, uncut:uncut shirt
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I had to piece the side/front pieces because they completely circumfrence the thigh; a very wide pattern piece. It was important to me to include the pocket and the front placket for reasons written below.
front: front with pocket Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew it again. I have sewn it many times but not for the last 15 years. It was amost a new pattern to me!
Conclusion: This is the story behind the boxers: We live on a farm quite a ways from town and I don't go unless I have lots of errands so as to not spend $ on auto fuel. My husband wanted me to go to town to buy some shirts that were on sale for his summer work so I did. I made sure to get the ones that he specified and brought them home. He 'Okayed' them and asked me to shorten the shirt tails so he could wear them (I have to do this to all his shirts; wide shoulders, narrow hips make shrits hang like a tent if I don't). He wore them a few times, maybe once each and yesterday morning I found them in the trash! I was a bit mad because they were new and I had to make a special trip to town to get them. When I asked he said that they were too bright! (Who cares! He does farm labor, they will be wet and muddy within two hours of leaving home anyway.) So I decided to make a pair of boxers out of one of the shirts and stick it in his drawer! We'll see if he wears them now!
