This is another project from the summer, which was on my list for a while. I found a cool men’s Swim shorts pattern from 5 out of 4 patterns and the perfect fabrics from Chien Vert to sew a couple pair for my husband.
The first pair I sewed with a hawaiian hibiscus print in blue. I shortened the shorts compared to the pattern, since my husband prefers an above the knee length. I included the cargo pocket with grommets and side seam pockets. It was my first time sewing with netting for the underwear lining and it turns out it’s not all that difficult to sew with.
I really like these, but most importantly my husband really likes them and they fit perfectly.
For the second pair, I sewed a simple boxer short style swim short. I shortened the pattern to boxer length. I skipped any embellishments & pockets except for topstitching with orange thread. I think I prefer these. The fabric and boxer style make them kind of old school.
