Sewing Project, New boxerbrief with a jockstrap like pouch, a side, and upper thigh contrast panels. Going to rename this the Jock Pouch Sport Brief.
This is going to be a more compression short, then a boxerbrief. That being said boxerbriefs should be snug to tight fitting not baggy anywhere. My preference is a more fitted and tight-knit garment.
Fabric being used are heavyweight apparel scuba knit, about 325gms. mostly black with burgundy accent panels. This scuba knit is 4way about 15% stretch, so the pattern was designed with about a 15% negative ease (this is how I design a more fitting stretch fabric garment, I am sure it goes against every professional out there, but my in my world it works )
Not sure if I am using the correct negative ease, could be 7.5% or 15% will look that up.
Basically, with a 15% stretch, my waist is 33″ so 33″X85%=28″ so the pattern was designed with a 30-inch waist, right in the middle of the two, actual waist (33) and minus the 15% stretch (28).
Made a mater block with no panels or cut lines, so I can do a quick trace copy and do a unique design for each build as I want
Going to be using my mock reverse coverstitch method (the more popular honeycomb stich) to finish the seams, slight change to the method, using a 3/8″ seam allowance, needed a bit more fabric in the seams,
