- Mend, alter, refashion 10 Boxers or Sleep Shorts. This is #3.
- Made from Pre-retirement stash that does not fit the Retirement lifestyle.
- Fit the need for more at-home lounge clothes. Retirement has some benefits!!!
After: Back panel boxers. Shirt did not yield much fabric due to seams, darts.
*Old Shirt: Piece and cut new boxers.
Add turquoise and brown yolk, waistband,and back panel cut from stash fabric.
*Back Panel Pattern: Pattern from men's boxers was traced onto white pillowcases. There aren't side seams, they can be added to piece fabrics. I have seen boxers with front panels also to allow for even more contrasting fabric.
What I Learned: This shirt yielded less fabric due to seams, darts, button plackets. The contrasting back-panel is needed to extend the shirt fabric.
The back panel also eliminates a back seam which can ride up.
|After: Back panel added to stretch original brown fabric.|
Audition for Refashion fabrics.
|Before: Light turquoise not used|
