Today I have the pleasure of joining in the fun with Handmade Boy’s FABULOUS series
If you remember back, I sewed up something for the very first Boys CAN wear PINK season, for my husband.
I couldn’t resist sewing something else for him….
…because boys AND MEN CAN WEAR PINK. See above proof.
It is just a color. One that my husband looks good in. Why should he not wear it?! In fact, there is a great little article from npr that gives a brief evolution of this color.
Please excuse the color differences in these photos. This close up is the actual color of the boxers, but the weather being what it has been lately, made photography challenging, to say the least. Plus, my husband doesn’t make it a habit of being photographed in his skivvies, and was a little camera shy.
I had just enough of this incredible white mouse fabric to whip him up a pair of boxers. I have been making all of his underwear for years now (spoiled much?), and he always enjoys a good novelty print. Because I only had a yard, I had to change the orientation of these sweet rodents, to vertically. I know that normally, going against the grain like that would not be wise, but this cotton has a little stretch, and is a good quality, so it works just fine.
I have used the same pattern for years (see above links). One that I drafted (with some help from the tutorial) especially for him. He hasn’t really changed much since 2009! Still same size.
Now he has a fun pair of unders that he can wear…under his clothes from now on.
