I have three pairs of Old Navy boxer shorts. Pictures are below. I want to make them into more form-fitting, pajama shorts.

What can I do to them to make them more feminine? Does stenciling over patterns look good? Should I stencil something on the white waistbands? What about ribbons or sequins or something?


I've already sewed up the "window" and added buttons to this one.

Shamrocks!

Plaid in different color.

Sorry for the obnoxiously large pictures. I'd love to hear any ideas you have.

this might be a dumb idea, but it was the first thing i thought of! you could elastic-ify the bottoms of them and make them into cute puffy little bloomers! XD

I would re-construct them to make them fit better around the legs.  Its not a good idea to add too much stuff to them if you plan on sleeping in them, especially if you toss and turn.

I'd trim them up short like hot pants and put lace around the legs!  Cheesy May have to take the sides in a little bit if they're too oversized.

I would roll them up and add a button on the side, or some cute trim on the cuffs.  If there are buttons on the boxers replace them with girl feminine buttons, or tack cute ribbons with tiny charms along the waistband.  Go to sublime stitching and hand sew an cute embroidered design...possiblities are endless.  Combine all the boxer shorts into one... cut out spaces within the shorts and sew a lace "patch " instead.  Create a  slit on the side and add fabric to it ....Pleat it, gather it, ruffle it.

You could open up the side seams  and add trim around the leg openings to make tap pants.
