Boxers are the only sewing project I can think of that live up to the “1 Hour” promise. That is, as long as you are making them for folks with testicular spacial needs. Otherwise add about 10-20 minutes for crotch seam adjustment.
Em’s lounging shorts were looking more than a little sad. She still has them, even though I made these for her but some people just like to use things until the bitter end. I have about 4 1/2 more yards of this chambray and I’m thinking about making some shorts for myself as well (and a dress, and a top, and maybe some cigarette pants am I going overboard?).
So anyway: boxers. Great beginner project, great weekend afternoon project, great gift. How can you go wrong?
