I forgot to do this part at first, which is why my pattern piece has tape on it. Making underwear from t-shirts is awesome because:

That was before I even thought about how weird it is to wear synthetic fabrics as underwear. Think about it, like, plastic to cover your crotch? The best kind of t-shirts or any other knit garment really to use for undies are soft and stretchy. Instead, choose anything that stretches in a way that reminds you of underwear. Also- whether you use cotton or not is up to you.
That said, if you want to get fancy with this underwear, I wrote a post all about making your own DIY underwear and matching bralette from a mesh t-shirt. As for what underwear to copy, this tutorial is built around underwear with an inside elastic waistband, no elastic on the leg holes which is great, because does anyone find that comfortable?
I got a dslr. Half of this tutorial was shot with my iphone bummer and half was shot with my fancy new camera, hence why some pictures are great and others are so-so. I promise you only beautiful pictures from here on out! Keep your pattern piece folded.
Measure the width of the crotch at about the center of your underwear. Mine measured 3 inches. Measure out how much you still need to cut out. I still had an inch of excess paper.

Pin and hem the leg holes, neatly with a zig-zag stitch. The waistband of the underwear was 26 inches without elastic so this was perfect to give them a little stretch and help them stay up. Sew your elastic to the waist on the inside of the underwear, stretching the elastic a little as you sew. Product - Men's 2 Pack Crew Tee. Product - Mens Woven Boxers, 2 pack.
