Did a big spring clean of my wardrobe and look what I found!
I made these boxer shorts in Year 9 Textiles class in highschool (2002).
I used to make clothes for my dolls using mumma's industrial sewing machine and sometimes with a needle and thread, however this is the first piece of clothing I made for myself using a pattern.
|The fabric is polyester... kinda floral too!|
|Check out that elastic waistband case!|
|LOL at my zig zag stitching!|
|These have been through the wash hundreds of times and still no fraying!|
|Almost perfect hemming.|
I reckon everyone in my family has had a go at wearing these shorts, even dad!
My little sister was wearing these for years and they must have ended up at my place after a sleepover or something. They still fit me and are very cosy to wear. Still can't get over how sturdy the stitching is. It's 11 years old!!
Just thought I'd quickly share with you my first handmade piece of clothing, now it's back to the sewing room!
Here's a pic of me in 2002!
