Sewing project, Low Rise boxerbrief, with mid length legs.

Another boxerbrief, is the Sonama (Target mens Retail name) lowrise boxerbrief, but with longer legs making a midlength boxerbrief.

This boxerbrief has a crotch gusset, has a better fit than those without.

Fished the seam with some topstitching, using a decorative stitch #52 on my brother CE1100 (inexpensive Walmart Edition, cost about $100).

Many machines come with a bunch of different decorative stitches, if you do not have one like my #52, use the more common Honeycomb stitch and get similar results.

Used number size 11 universal needle. Fabrics used: Black lightweight nyloresultsn/spandex and leopard lightweight rayon/spandex. Both good stretch (about 50%) and great rebound.

Was the first time I used my mock reverse coverstich on lightweight stretch fabrics, had to switch to a ⅜” seam allowance.  Fabric did not have enough body to keep a decent ¼”.

Done, fabric used, Blacklight lightweight nylon/spandex, leopard a lightweight rayon/spandex, both very stretchy about 50% with good rebound.   All seam done with a mock reverse coverstitch, in the future I will use the mock reverse coverstitch for medium to heavier weight fabric, was a bit more difficult with the lightweight.

This stitch is fairly common, I looked up many models on line and most seem to have it. It is sometime referred to as the Honeycomb stitch.
