Hey there, short stuff! When it comes to relaxing around the house this winter, you’ll look blooming lovely in these simple unisex boxer shorts. Choose polka dot or floral prints for the women’s version, and a contrasting yet complementary fabric for the men’s – then sew on brightly coloured or mismatching buttons as the final flourish. This same pattern works for men and women; just adjust the sizing to suit. It comes courtesy of the lovely Measure Twice Cut Once peeps, where you can find vintage-inspired knicker patterns for every occasion! Download this design and say ‘see you later’ to boring loungewear.
