Indigo Boxer Boxer Briefs

As my husband is a little on the stout side, I had difficulty in locating his waist and hips. (Getting him to stand still long enough to measure him was like trying to herd cats. In the end I had to use a combination of the measurement of his trouser size and an existing pair of briefs; it was easier. The result was that I should use size 5.

The pattern pieces went together beautifully and I ended up with a very professional finish. I didn't treat the front centre pieces as per the pattern but constructed them as if they were a gusset i.e. I sewed them wrong side to wrong side which I thought looked more professional. The only negative is the width of the waist band in relation to width of recommended elastic. I barely had enough space to sew an extremely narrow stay stitch. Consequently, when sewing the band to the garment I had no option but to catch the elastic within the seam. The next pair of briefs will have either a narrower elastic or I'll cut the fabric band wider. A wider fabric band is the better option, I think.

All in all, a great pattern that I'll use many times over. Thank you very much for the time effort put into producing it.
