- Mend, alter, refashion 10 Boxers or Sleep Shorts. This is #1.
- Made from Pre-retirement stash that does not fit the Retirement lifestyle.
- Fit the need for more at-home lounge clothes.
Project Goal: Refashion well worn Pre-retirement jacket into Boxers.
|After: Back panel boxers.|
Before: I refashioned this jacket when my aunt handed it down to me. I then taught in it for at least 10 years.
After: Back panel boxers. This project reminds me of memories that go into quilting from family clothing. I like that I was able to use the jacket worn by both my aunt and by me.
*Old Jacket: Piece and cut new boxers.
Add the red waistband cut from stash fabric.
*Back Panel Pattern: Pattern from men's boxers were traced onto white pillowcases. There aren't side seams, they can be added to piece fabrics.
What I Learned: This jacket yielded less fabric due to seams, darts, pockets. The back-panel boxer worked around limited fabric yield.
|Before: Jacket with at least 20 years family history.|
|New Back Panel Pattern: |
Traced from men's white cotton boxers.
