TheMisterT grew up loving the Calvin & Hobbes comic strip and so “lucky rocketship underpants” are thing around here and I have made at least a few pairs of rocketship boxers. The MisterT also proclaims to be a “big fan of comfort” and as such has a few pairs of what he calls comfort pants - i.e. pajama- and sweatpants which I have also made a few.
So when I spotted this knit fabric on the 60% off rack at I HAD to get enough to make him a new pair! He also loves Halloween, so these were sure to be a hit. I’d never made him this style or used a knit so I guess it wasn’t entirely sure to be a hit.
I didn’t realize until I was setting the bolt on the cutting counter that this fabric is also…GLOW IN THE DARK! Bonus!
I used Simplicity 8268 which I already had and has sizes for adults, teens and children. It goes together pretty quickly and easily for a pattern for knits.
