Have you ever wanted to get into a stranger’s boxers? I have and I did (shhh, don’t tell my husband). And here are the photos to prove it!
If you’d like to get into a man’s boxers an important thing to remember is – bigger really is better!
These brand new boxer shorts had a 44 inch waist and were free to me, I volunteer at the Humane Society thrift store and we don’t sell underwear. So I was able to scoop these up at no charge!
I measured and cut the waist to fit me, shifted the fly front to the side and added a pocket in the fly opening, using the pocket pattern from a dress I just made.
Then I hauled out all my blue and white scrap fabrics and trims and auditioned them to see which ones I liked the best with the boxers blue and white plaid print.
I layered several of the scrap fabrics and trims together and then sewed it to the bottom of the skirt. Done! I think this skirt turned out cute. What do you think?

This post chronicles my 3 favorite garment refashions and they are: The “3 Shirts to Dress Refashion“, the “Craftsy Project Upcycle Reversible Wrap Skirt”, and the “Men’s Boxers to Women’s Skirt Refashion“.
