I sew boxers for my son and they are not only fun but also very cheap compared to the ones you buy. When I started I wanted a free patter and, like you, had a hard time finding one. I was evendually given a site but the directions were complicated and I did not like the final product because of this. I went to Wal-Mart and bought a Simplicity Pattern for boxers and was not disappointed at all. While I did have to pay for the patter it allows me to never have to buy another because ALL the sizes were in there, the directions were very simple to follow, and not only do I love the outcome of the boxers but so does my son.

Since boxers are simple why don't you just cut up an old pair and make a pattern. Don't forget the seam allowances.........:wink:

Why not keep your eye on fabric store sales (JoAnn's, Beverly's, local fabric stores). Ever so often I see their patters marked down to (sometimes $.99 for Simplicity and McCalls).:pc:
