Ski boots in Summer

I've had this fabric for a few years (purchased from Quilt Fabric Closeouts) and have always planned on making boxer shorts for DH as this is his sleeping attire when we are in the lodge in Thredbo, so they are wrapped and ready for Xmas.



I have used Jalie 2326 with the centre back seam, however I didn't do the split side seams and made a casing for the elastic (the elastic is held together with a safety pin, until I get him to try them on).



This is my first sewing project for DH so I will be interested to see how his measurements equate to those from the pattern companies.

Sharon - my DH is a skiing tragic too so he'd probably like that fabric. We go to the Silver Brumby - what about you?

Maree, DH is a volunteer patroller at Thredbo and they have their own lodge at Woodrigde, just opposite what was the AIS.
