Throughout the project, I kept having new favorite squares.  Currently it's "Look, Jane."

Stuff like this makes me wish my DH wore boxers. Hilarious!

edited to add... It's a Michael Miller fabric, not AH.

The link is for a pair that I made and didn't photograph which are from an Alexander Henry fabric.  Sorry for the confusion.

My goodness!  All the love!  Thanks to everyone for looking and for the positive feedback.  For those of you inspired (blush) to head out to the fabric store, let me tell you that you can't automatically dismiss a particular area of the prints section.  Of course, the Dick and Jane material was on the edge of the kids'/baby prints and the Heavy Equipment was deep in the quilting-type prints.  I have a couple of prints in mind for more pairs, but I'm keeping those to myself!

Yey JeepChick!  I think the pattern's sizing is pretty close to accurate.  The Manflesh likes his drawers roomy and the pattern's size large is right on with his store bought large pairs from what I've been told.  I hope you show us what you make!

If there was a knitting/crocheting super villainess, she'd have that hanging on her utility belt!  I don't do either, but think that's really cool.

Thanks everyone!  You all are not helping me stay away from making boxer shorts!  Let me tell ya, making boxer shorts changes the way you look at cotton prints.  It wouldn't surprise me if I develop a reputation at the fabric store as "that crazy lady who wanders through the prints giggling to herself."

Thank you, jjhubbs!  Maybe I can get an action shot of the first pair, which are pretty hysterical, too.  I have to force myself not to buy more.  Maybe for Christmas...
4118  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / PHOTO UPDATE! Underpants (not graphic, but full of double entendres) on: September 10, 2007 07:05:08 PM
So, there's a long and had-to-be-there/know-him back story that lead me to sew some boxer shorts for The Manflesh.  I forgot to take a photo of the first pair, but they were made from this Alexander Henry material: http://www.ahfabrics.com/product_details.php?p_id=1229.  That pair was a huge hit.  He bragged on them to all kinds of people.  *Photo added below!

Well, now every time I'm at the fabric store, I get the giggles looking at prints that would make funny boxer shorts.  The latest pair are from Dick and Jane fabric that has so many double entendres that it's almost impossible not to make underpants out of it!

Action shot:



The pattern is Simplicity 9958.  It's labeled that it should take 1 hour to make and I think that's accurate IF you aren't trying to
1. find the funniest parts to put on the front or match patterns,
2. watch tv,
3. drink a cocktail.

*Action shot 2:



I spent a lot of time trying to get the best positioning of the guys on the shorts. Unfortunately, I was concentrating mostly on the fly (ahem) and hem and didn't even think about the waist band, so some of the guys' faces are distorted by the gathers.  I was disappointed, but at least the print is not about the guys' faces.  Tchk tchk!  Also, I wanted that guy carrying the lumber to be lower and a little closer to the center.  Shocked

That's so hilarious!  Are you going to find an oom-pah ringtone to match?

That's definitely pop art!  And good pop art at that.  I especially like the framed toy foods.  They make me giggle.  I can't tell if they are attached to the surface of the backing material or set into it a little.  Willing to share?
