They look great ! Are you going to do any diferent shaping at the front with the boys ? Just that you were talking about a diferent pattern for the ? I like the look of them , they look like they hug the legs well ! What cool undies :D

Those were the boys ones mumtotwo - they have a double front piece and hidden seams so nothing to rub on boys delicate bits :lol:
The girls ones have a small double crotch piece so don't have that different colour panel at the front - though realistically you could easily make either for a girl or boy as kids are basically the same shape till about 7 yrs old.
I am slowly working on boxers as well, but I do mean slowly as I want to make them without seams on the inside legs and while this is fine when just fiddling with fabric drawing up the pattern is proving more tricky.

The waist band just sits without needing to stretch, perchaps could be a cm or two smaller but he is slim so I'd leave it as it is as some kids are bigger, it's not like the waist is gaping on him so it's fine :)

and here's the 92cm on Quinn, perfect fit, won't use that grey cotton lycra again though it was too thin and kept curling and was driving me mad :smt044

Wonderful! He must be the same size as L - fit is just about exactly the same :D
Thanks for that, I'm off to take photos and write instructions now... :mrgreen:

Yeah I have to make some for my DH too, but I don't have a measurement chart for mens sizes so will have to do a spot of research before I get them done.
Will work on the older kids and then womens ones first

sorry this pattern got lost in the black hole that is my kitchen table :hide:

anyway i wiped up a pair for my little guy, did 110cm but think he could get away with a size (or 2 ) smaller

as per normal, your pattern is simple, easy to put together and has good coverage :mrgreen:

will make a few more of a smaller size and let you know how i get on.
