We’ve been sewing boxers in “Home Ec” class since forever. The City Gym Shorts from The Purl Bee offers an updated, popular design that your students will love to wear. This pattern is offered for free in both children’s and ladie’s sizing, hip sizes 33″-46″.
If the stripes of this project are intimidating, check out the cult following that this pattern has on Pinterest. The fabric possibilities are endless! Sown Brooklyn has done a sew-along with step-by-step photo instructions to simplify this pattern even further.
I read about this tank on one of my favorite blogs, In Color Order. She’s made about a gazillion of them which will give your students lots of inspiration. The stylish tank is endlessly versatile and can be lengthened into a dress version.
