From my previous posts you know that my man is very particular about his clothes. If he could, he’d never go clothes shopping. He hates choosing, trying on, and is very suspicious of the brands he has never worn before (that would be pretty much every brand out there). He approaches new clothes like a wild animal – circling and eyeing them suspiciously. Many clothes never make it to the first wear, most others will get worn only once.
However, there is one true love in his life, much older than his love for me. This love is his boxer shorts.
Don’t ask me how long I tried to sway him by buying other kinds and designs, they all stayed in the closet drawers, untouched.
These special shorts he loves were sold only in New Zealand, and every time we’d go there, he’d stock up – 10, 15 pairs at a time. The customs people probably thought he was running an underground underpants smuggling business.
He’d wear these shorts until the elastic worked its way out of the casing, hems fell off and the fabric got so thin, it would disintegrate in your hands.
But one day the unthinkable happened. They stopped making the shorts. There was no more and there never will be.
When we received these news I was just finishing his cargo shorts and felt quite off the hook for a time being. The feeling didn’t last, because my man arrived at my sewing room once more, this time with a pair of boxers.
And of course I agreed to do it. “Yes, I’ll make you exactly the same ones, and no, you will never run out.” “I guess it is very handy to have someone who can take a pattern off something and sew you exactly the same thing”, he said, relieved. And just like that all my time and money spent on sewing was validated.
So today I present you the most comfortable boxer shorts sewing pattern ever (apparently).
Worn and tested by the fussiest person, this pattern passed with flying colours.
Why are they so comfortable? They are not clingy and they have a wide elasticated waist (no sliding or rolling). They have a handy front opening (makes them look very RTW), and the best part of all, they have no centre back seam, which is very important, because they don’t get stuck where the sun doesn’t shine.
This pattern is PDF only and comes in 4 sizes – S, M, L and XL. All four sizes are included in the pattern, together with fully illustrated sewing instructions. This pattern can be printed at home on A4 or USL paper, or on a single sheet of A0 paper.
Do it now, and the tales of your generosity and skill will spread far and wide. He’ll never be able to complain about you spending all that time with your sewing machine.
