I see London, I see France, I see the Boy’s Bundle!

JOCOLE boxer and tank

The Bundle Up sale is officially live and this one is all for the boys. I’m happy to be able to show off one of the patterns include in this week’s boy bundle, the Jocole Tank and boxer set.

This was a fun departure from what I’ve had on my sewing table as of late, and my first official underwear sew!

Jocole boxers


jocole boxer and tank pattern

The little guy boxers are seriously cute. There is an option to make your fly functional or not. I put in a functional fly, the directions made it a snap. I will admit to winging my button placement instead of marking it from the pattern (whistles). It’s a little high.


Give the kid a blanket- he’s gonna toss it! These get a big thumbs up from my model who told me he was going to wear them in both the daytime and nighttime. They sit nicely and don’t go riding up, a plus in all underwear right?


While it was instant love on the boxers, it turns out O is oppose to shirts without sleeves. Who knew? Not me. I can say as I briefly saw it the set together is a great pair. But he was quite startled to discover the shirt I had given him had no sleeves. You know how to spot a sewers child? He’s the one demanding that you PUT sleeves on something and finding you impossible when you disagree.

boxers He wasn’t budging on it. I slid the tank into his pj drawer. I anticipate somewhere around December he will be very interested in wearing it.

The good news? The tank is a quick sew. And a GREAT scrap buster. So I made one up for the model in the house who has no qualms with sleeveless items.

The tank is a really quick sew and yield a nice top that can be worn for pjs, and undershirt, or in M’s case and everyday play top. When you purchase the bundle there is also a reverse embroidery pattern included. It has lots of great boy images and a tutorial for the method.

jocole tankShe wanted the triceratops. It may have been above my current skill level 🙂 I shrank down the include image to 60 percent since I wanted to place it in the bottom corner of the top. She is in love with it and loudly and proudly has been showing off her triceratops all afternoon.

The adults have assured me it looks like it suppose to be some kind of dinosaur. So maybe a little more practice!

    I see a triceratops there! They are cute shorts. Looks like there’s a bit of value in that bundle for those of us who sew for our boys. thanks for the heads up.

    Good to know this sews up well, as I purchased this pattern in my bundle. Love the fabric you’ve used in the pyjama pants, Rachel.

    How to tell a sewers kid!! This post has me cracking up a little. I heard mine hard core complaining about fabric that didn’t breathe well in some store bought pajamas. I’m excited about your first underwear!! Undies are so so fun:)
