I made the Walbrook Boxer Briefs from Greenstyle for Fathers Day! I used some of the charcoal Riley Blake knit I had left over from my last dress, Simplicity 1804. It’s fabulous jersey, and hubby’s tush is certainly worth it.
I sewed size medium, and it was a fairly easy project. I made one mistake at first; which was sewing the weenie dart all the way closed. You need to leave the bottom part open just a little, and it will make a slight v-shape. (You’ll know what I’m talking about if you make them:) It took about 1 minute with the seam ripper and I had it fixed; thanks to the Greenstyle Creations Sewing & Pattern group on Facebook.
The pattern consists of only 4 pieces. The main body, the fly, fly facings, and crotch piece. Since the main body is all one piece, there’s no center back or side seams. Nice! There are 2 lengths; I went with the sexy short version.
You can sew a functioning fly, or a faux fly. (I like the functional fly; since it makes me feel super talented.) Sizes are small to XXXL, and all sizes use about one yard or a little less.
Now that I have my first pair of Walbrook Boxer Briefs under my belt, I’m pretty sure I can whip a pair of these up in about 40 minutes. It’s a real quick sew, and good fit. I wish I could show them on the model, but I don’t want to foster that kind of jealousy at SewsNBows. I can assure you though, I am pleased with how they look.
I’m not going to make a joke to objectify scantily clad men today; only because it’s Fathers Day. But normally, I totally would.
If you like the Walbrook Boxer Briefs, you can buy the pattern at Greenstyle. If you buy any pattern from my link, I’ll receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. I definitely recommend this one; and not just because I’m saving up for a Starbucks.
A big salute to all the dads handling their business out there. Happy Fathers Day! Until next time,
