Getting Into A Stranger’s Boxers

PicMonkey Collage

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.

Hi! I’m Kitty and I adore fabric. I’m not a great seamstress (I would describe myself as an advanced beginner) but I’m passionate about sewing.

I’ve taken a few sewing classes but I learn by repetition so it’s practice makes perfect for me, although really I’d settle for just wearable. I’m trying to learn enough about sewing so I’ll be able to make and wear clothing without being asked “did you make that?”

But since some of my favorite refashions were crafts or accessories, I decided to do a separate post yesterday on my 3 favorite non-garment projects. 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“.
