  1. These are really fun – I did have a squint at the pattern when you mentioned them before and I am tempted. I am impressed that Mr. H-L so willingly offered himself up to be an underwear model on the Minerva blog – you’ll definitely have to make him some more pairs now. Did the elastic come from Minerva Crafts too?

    • Yes, the elastic came from Minerva – I was so pleased as I really didn’t want to resort to black for the waistband. The Mister needed no persuasion to model – things like that don’t bother him although there isn’t enough money in the world to persuade me to get down to my knickers for public scrutiny!

  2. Just what I needed to brighten up my day, as I’m sat at my desk eating my lunch!!!!!

  3. I’m tempted to try – but it might just reinforce The Managements opinion that he doesn’t need to go shopping for clothes. Ever. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • There is always that danger – unless that means you’d have to make all his clothes! Boxers are fun to make, actually and they certainly make a change from the usual stuff.

  5. They’re great!! Though I suspect he has no trouble finding them in the clean washing pile and wonder if eventually he will need sunglasses to go into his ‘smalls’ drawer LOL

    • Actually, The Boys have the same taste in garish underwear – the laundry basket sometimes looks a bit like a bag of smarties with all that colour! I quite like the fact that they all like to wear something a bit different to everyone else, though, and suspect they will be fighting over the jersey remnants from my latest dress for some boxers!

  6. These are brilliant! I think I may make some for my husband’s birthday in the summer. I’m not sure he’ll be modeling them for me though and I certainty won’t be allowed to splash pictures of him wearing them all over the Internet! What a good sport Mr H-L is (assuming he knows you’ve put his pictures on Minerva Crafts๐Ÿ˜ฎ).

    • Oh, you should make him some for his birthday! Honestly, my husband wants these washed as soon as they go into the basket as he says they’re so comfortable – they were tailor made to fit him exactly, after all. He’s fine about posing for photos – it’s the extrovert in him:)

  7. These really are fab! Perfect fabric choice too! My hubbys not a boxer short wearer, but maybe I can persuade him otherwise. I’ve had the pattern printed off since it came out but not gotten round to making them.

    • So you bought the pattern even though hubby’s not a boxer short wearer? You must be desperate to sew something different for a change! Perhaps H would like some? I got a lot of enjoyment out of making them but Mr H-L also loves wearing them, so it’s a no brainier for me.

      • I bought them with H in mind, and even bought some lovely plush elastic, stripy! He just wasn’t as enthusiastic as I thought he might be, so moved on. I’ve shown the hubby yours, and I’m thinking of giving them a go. I checked out that fabric – for me a gold top not for undies, I thought it was a bit expensive, I’m spoilt with Dewsbury and Leeds prices!

      • Art Gallery is quite pricey but I love it for the quality and the distinctive design. I try to use it in a Minerva post and then I don’t have to pay for it!

  9. Great boxers. I going to have to get that pattern. I made Some Liberty cotton boxers for Minerva which Mr B likes but that pattern would be more his style

  11. Must confess to nearly dropping my iPad in the bath when reaching Mr pics ๐Ÿ˜‚ I had visions of the bribery required to get him to model, can only try to imagine what mine would have said. Oh and awesome make you clever thing ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    • Thanks – they’ve gone down a treat and I now have my orders to fill his drawer with tailor made boxers as he loves them so much! No bribery needed to get him to model – he’s such an extrovert:)

  12. These came out so well. And how nice to know they’re now a favorite. I tried commenting on Minerva, but they’ve reset passwords and now I can’t seem to find my way back.

  13. Thanks Alys, it’s always nice when you hit on a really successful pattern that they want you to make more, although I tend to get bored after making a few of the same thing so he might have to wait a while:)
