Manlybaloo – Mens Boxer Short Sewing Pattern


Sew these manly-manly boxer shorts for the manly-man in your life.  (Or lady – these shorts are lovely for you ladies too!).  Designed as light and breezy underwear, but can equally be used as summer shorts (but we’d recommend sewing the fly shut in that case).

This is a quick and satisfying sewing pattern for woven fabrics, with thoughtful detailing and a substantial, faced button fly.

Manlybaloo is Sewabaloo’s only adult pattern, and was originally created to supply Mr Sewabaloo with a steady stream of handmade birthday, Christmas and Valentines gifts.


It is a loose fit boxer short, designed for lightweight woven fabrics (cotton poplin is recommended, silky fabrics would be saucy but very much more tricky to sew).  It has a comfortable elasticated waist, vented legs, and a button fly.

It’s a straightforward sew, but you will need to pay attention when constructing the fly.

While it’s been designed for men, women can enjoy Manlybaloo too – just choose the pattern according to your hip measurement rather than waist measurement and sew the fly closed.

The instructions are clear and comprehensive with digital illustrations throughout.

The digital patterns are provided in both large (A0) and small formats (A4 / US letter) and are layered, so you can turn off the layers you don’t need to use for clarity and ease of size identification.

Sizes XS-4XL are included within this pattern.
