    I have been making my three grandsons boxer underwear for years. They love that I can make them longer and they can lounge in them or shorter for true boxers. And the best part is that no one else will have print they have.

  47. Lori says:

    My favorite garment to make or make over would definitely be dresses! I prefer to make my own since I can customize it to my exact specifications, but I occasionally do buy a manufactured dress if I really love the fabric. Then I just need to make it perfect for me, like increasing the darts at the waist and shortening the length, for example.
