These boxers are Minnie approved!
It’s the last day of the Tommy Boxer walkthrough so let’s finish them up.
Sew the Fly
Here’s what your fly should look like right now.
Lift the top flat and fold the corner of the bottom layer under.
Then fold the top layer under as well so the edges match up and pin in place.
Stitch down the right side (looking from the inside), down around the bottom, and up the left, being sure not to catch the right side into the sewing on the way back up — otherwise the fly won’t open!
Give an extra little zig zag on the bottom to secure.
And stitch in line with the bottom elastic seam to secure the top part.
Our final seam which goes across the bum.
Pin the crotch seam and sew it. Same seam allowance as before. Press your seams open and then closed.
And finish off. As before, I’ve chosen to use a serger.
Once again, reinforce from the outside with some top-stitching.
Vents and Hems
Our last step is the bottom hem. First sew each vent. You’ll be sewing up one side, zig zag across and then down the other side. You’ll nee to open up the bottom hem for this.
Press hte bottom hem in place and stitch.
And you’re done! Enjoy your new boxers.
Hope you enjoyed this walkthrough and that it was helpful. I’ll have a review of the pattern as well, but to summarize: I really like this pattern and will use it to make many more boxers.
