Just finished these this evening. Based on a mid-1940's pattern for boys. This pair is at least two sizes too small for me, but it's a test piece. I should be able to draft a larger pattern based on the original. I'm pretty determined to get it right, and I'm excited about the possibility of having some long lasting boxers that won't have elastic to get worn out. The fabric is from a French cotton sheet that I bought at the thrift store.


  1. I'd like to see this thrift store that ya'll are always dragging boatloads of awesome stuff out of.

  2. You know, it's funny 'cause compared to the many thrift stores I've frequented over the years I get skunked most often at this one (one of two thrift stores on maui) but when I get something good there, it's really good!
