Trim Your Boxers While you Trim the Tree!

I have a REALLY fun tutorial for you today to girl up the Sisboom Tommy boxers

This tutorial is so super easy! Maybe we should call it an inspiration idea with a couple pictures in stead of a tutorial... 
Anyways, I want to challenge everyone to sew something up for themselves in the next month! Maybe you aren't sure about making a dress or clothes to wear out in public just yet, but boxer shorts (and maybe even a matching shirt?) I think you can do and it is a great place to start. Especially since you don't even have to leave the house in the outfit! I used the Sisboom Patricia top for my matching shirt, the side vents just match!

  • For the trim I picked out 2meters (and have about 3/4m leftover) of lace/crochet 2 1/4inch trim.

Ok, Let's get going on this! I want you to follow the pattern directions right until the last step! Before you sew the bottom hem I want you to pin on your trim to the underside like shown below.

Then you will sew the hem and your trim on in one fell swoop!

Ta-Da!!! Pretty? I think so! I am also quite pleased at how well the trim pattern matches the fabric pattern (it's the little things that make my day usually) 

Fabric is from the Sisboom Honey Child Line 

So who is in for more self sewing?! Ready to make it a New Years resolution? 
(To sew myself one thing I could wear out of the house was my resolution last year by the way ~Jeanine)
