Around the leg holes , he has a small bum and he's not huge around the legs either ......I don't mind longer leg undies , he has a pair of the ottobre pattern , but they need to be fitted around the leg , loose and flappy are not good for wee boys :lol: so some type of binding around the bottom of the leg ?
Really keen on trying your undie and boxer patterns ! I reckon good fitting undies are really important and the commercial ones around just don't fit ! Gee i wish i could sew .....he'd be a great wee tester , if they fit well on him you'd be set! :lol: ( i really would prefer not to be having to pay $50 for 3 pair of thunderpants for him just to get undies to fit him well :lol: , especially since we run on a base of about 7 min - cause he has the occasional wee accident / skid that requires undie change )

The undies are actually quite easy to make once you've gotten the whole 'hidden seams' thing sussed, and you could make the legs and waist sit tighter by not turning the bindings and having them as cuffs instead. (which also makes them faster to make) If you like I could use you as an instructions tester to make sure when I get the instructions sorted that they are clear enough.
I'm being difficult making the boxers by trying to remove the seam on the inside leg, so they might be a wee way away... my stubborn streak WILL beat the problems I'm causing myself :smt044

yep , I'll be an instructions tester - If i can follow them anyone can :roll: given I'm such a basic sewer . Couldn't do them for a week though as I use Mums machine ( and her expertise when i get all confused :lol: ) and she's away atm as her brother just died :( . Maybe it will give me the confidence to try other patterns too :D , I want to try making ladies and bigger girls ones - my daughter fits both kids and ladies patterns and likes undies that stay in place - in funky materials !

It'll probably be a week before I get the instructions sorted anyway.
Am working on older girls, boys, and womens ones too, can't really do mens as I don't have a set of measurements for them, but will be making some for DH so could offer that pattern as a freebee for people to alter as needed.

cool, just printed and cut out my patterns, there's just a wee edit to be made on the 104-116cm front part, where it says "centre cut on fold" is backwards so it says "blof no tuc ertnec" but with the letters facing the other way too :wink:

Will you be selling this pattern, or selling pre made undies?

Selling the patterns, and hopefully having a few NZ WAHM's who will buy cottage licenses and sell the finished products.

I'm struggling with my hidden seams, I've done them on other things but maybe I'm just dumb or too tired :boohoo:

Awesome, they look nice and comfy.
Xav must be a bit bigger than A - I did A the 110cm size and could stand to go one smaller even - he's really got long and slim the last 6 months (probably due to get really wide again now I've said that :smt044 )
No problems with the waistband being too large?
