ridgestitch's The Darcy Boxer Shorts


Fairly quick and easy pattern. Instructions are easy to follow. Didn’t find attaching the elastic all that easy but it would have helped to have a sewing machine with a proper threefold zigzag stitch.

Who did you sew this for?


What changes did you make?

Ended up sewing the fly closed

What did you like or dislike about the pattern?

Sizing seems good

What advice would you give someone starting this project?

Find out from the recipient whether they actually use a fly with boxer shorts. Then if they don’t and you don’t want one just for looks you can save yourself a heap of time by omitting it.
