My cold is almost gone, I went to the doctor and nothing was actually infected, so I didn't need antibiotics, just rest.  Rest - I'm a stay at home mom with a 2 1/2 yr old, there is no rest lol.  Hubby has been good helping out, so I am recovering, just slower than I want to.  Thanks for the concern  Cheesy

Ok, I've made my first pair...blue camo pattern and I'm waitin on hubby to try them on.  I've kinda annoyed him, he knew I was making something for him, but he didn't know what.  When it got to the sew the flap to the left part... I wanted to see if that was actually what he had on his current boxers.  Instead of going to his drawer, I undid his pants when he walked by to check - he wasn't amused Smiley Then I asked him if he actually peed thru the slot, or pulled down the front - again not amused.  Apparently some things just shouldn't be shared  Roll Eyes  I didn't do the snaps and sewed the front "pocket" shut.  I've already got fabric out to make three more, but want to make sure these fit... I'll post pics in a day or so when I get a few pair done! 

Thanks for the motivation to do these!!

Well now, I don't know if I've met a man (of the kind I would make underpants for) who would be unhappy if his pants were undone and his fly examined when he was just walking by.  Wink

Lol, true - I think it was my fault by telling him I just wanted to look, you know, kinda a let down for him Smiley  He also had his hands full of computer stuff. BTW, I should have left the pocket open  Tongue 

Has anyone made the boxers that have the extra piece in the back?  I've never seen a pattern and that is what I ususally buy for my son...I would rather not ruin a pair of his for a pattern, but I will if I need to.

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

Haha!  Your reply reminds me of a friend of mine who's dad actually was a milkman for awhile when he was a kid.  Anyway, I never put the snaps in, because none of his store-bought boxers have snaps, so it seems like he doesn't want them so why bother?  I also omit Step 1 and do all my pressing/pinning of the waist and legs at once, then sew them (Steps 11 and 14), then do the elastic (Steps 12 & 13).

How'd you modify them for a girlie fit?

jennybean & sueece:
Thanks! 

Ok, I was looking at my instructions before I started to see what you've changed... I only have 13 instructions!  I've literally had this pattern for years, and wonder if things have changed.  I understand what you've done, and I'll prob follow that advice, to speed things up but the elastic is # 10 and 11 on my sheets, wierd.   Did I read that right?  I have a bad habit of jumping before I think, but this does seem like it's off to me compared to my instructions.

I hem them before putting in the elastic, even though my directions say the opposite.  It's not like he's trying them on and I'm making sure that the hemmed just so, you know?  My pattern has the last couple directions on another sheet with just those last couple on there (like maybe 2 or 3 steps).  Maybe they added some later?  I just made the changes that made it easier for me personally and since I'd made several already, I felt comfortable making them.

I love the boxers you made. I've been wanting to make some for my boyfriend, so I picked up simplicity 9958 and I'm on my way to completing my first pattern. I was wondering if you think the pattern runs big, because I did the large and they're way too big for him. Also, any tips you have on getting the elastic through the casing would be greatly appreciated. Huh
Thanks.

The easiest way I've found to run the elastic is to put a safety pin on the end of it - it gives you something to hold onto as you work it thru...  I would love any easier suggestions though Smiley

I love the Day tags. It's so cute. I remember when my mom did that actually...last summer. Anyway. Really cute, boxers. I'd wear them on the outside, just to show off.
