The front fly panels with the trim attached an stitched down

This pattern is 64 pages--two sheets of 32 that needed to be taped together. Not fun. I was able to get half done before leaving for church. I managed to keep the rippling to a minimum while I traced the pattern. While I was tracing I decided to also trace the additional piece for making these as the boxer briefs as well.

the solid black that they are
Once the trim pieces are stiched on the fly, the fly pieces are attached to the back panel, by sandwiching the back panel between the two front fly panels. Then, the inseam is sewn and the panel is sewn to each side.
This has taken me less than 2 hours to pull everything out, thread the machines, cut the fabric, sew, and clean up. Today took a little longer because of these minor issues, but only an additional hour.

Manny's legs end at the knees
|It is difficult to do this shot tastefully|
but it is necessary for this pattern.
I hope I don't offend anyone.

This picture makes me laugh.
It is just comical to me.
I don't feel comfortable putting Mr. Toad's picture online in what is basically underwear. So, Manny and his half legs will have to do for this project.
