Sew Fantastic Show Off {Boxer Sleep Shorts}

IMG_3744You know it’s almost July when I’m prepping for my 5 week Sew Fantastic sewing session for teens at the library. The program is already filled {I limit it to 8} and it’s looking like I mostly have new and young {6th graders} sewers. My plan is to start off Week 1 with a nice easy square pillow and then spend the last 4 weeks working on these awesome boxer shorts for lounging in this summer. I have a feeling I’m going to want to kick myself, but we’ve never attempted to make clothes before, and this project was relatively simple {except for the elastic waist band. I see some tears in my future, but it’s no worse than a zipper}. 

sleepshortsMy favorite part about this project? It came with a pattern! No using a “favorite pair of shorts” to create your own pattern- just cut and tape and you’re good to go. I found the pattern and instructions for “Easy Women’s Boxer Shorts” here. The fabric came from JoAnn Fabrics for $4 and I bought the elastic for $6, but I have enough elastic for a second pair of shorts. Score! I will definitely be making myself another pair. 🙂
