Broadcloth Boxers, v.3, black & white chambray
I've run out of knit fabric, but I'm still trying to perfect my boxers pattern, so here's a broadcloth version. These are loosely based on American WWII military issue boxer shorts. I like the look of them, but I overcompensated for the lack of stretch by adding too much extra material in the body; I'll bring in the body some and reduce the number of pleats on the next pair so they're not so baggy. These seem to have a lot of extra sag around the seat too.
Materials: black and white cotton chambray; vintage enameled work shirt buttons.
Construction: single needle, hand-felled seams; hand-punched keyhole buttonholes.
