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

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...

That is frightening and hilarious at the same time!  Maybe my DH would wear boxers if he had some this cool...

I'd love to see an action shot of construction worker boxers.   Shocked

Haha, those are great. I'm sure if I made some for my boyfriend he'd turn beet red...and then wear them all the time.   Cheesy  I especially like those construction worker ones.  Wink

That is hilarious.  It never would have occurred to me to make boxers out of that fabric, but now it seems like what that fabric was made for! Very clever of you Grin

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."
