Boxers or Sleep Shorts:
*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!!!
Before: Shorts from end of summer closet.
After: Heavier weight cotton sleep shorts to wear with t-shirts.
*Remove waistband/ zipper/ pockets. Top stitch and serge seams as needed.
*Lace/ Elastic: Make narrow hem on waist. Stitch lace. Do not make a casing for elastic. Stitch a very wide elastic.
What I Learned: I top stitched very wide elastic because the fabric is heavier.
This made a paper bag waist.
