For the first time, we’re going to include a contest aspect to our sew-along. All you will have to do to enter is comment on the final sew-along post (I’ll remind you when I make that post, don’t worry) with a link to a photo of your trunks. Now hold on…before you get disappointed that you won’t be able to enter because no man will ever be brave enough to model your trunks, don’t worry, I will be writing a funny little post on “How to Photograph Your Comox Trunks Sans Sexy Model.”
The winner of our contest (chosen using a random number generator from the selection of comments) will win a prize pack of boxer sewing goodies – a selection of elastics and a selection of great knits – and so they are ready to sew an entire underwear drawer full of Comox Trunks!
Stay tuned for a sew-along schedule and photos of the prize pack! Will you be joining us?
As per Dan’s great suggestion on our Comox Trunks announcement post, below is a link printable knit stretch guide so that you can choose your fabric even before you’ve received your pattern in the mail. When you print it, don’t allow the printer to “fit to page” or in any way scale this file. The black portion of the bar should measure 3″. Here you go!:
Note: Now that I’ve told you the good news, I have a slightly less thrilling announcement about the Comox Trunks sewing pattern. It has come to our attention that there was a minor error involving pattern pieces 2 & 3. We will be revising the PDF pattern shortly and will email it to everyone who has purchased it. For those of you who have purchased the tissue pattern, please refer to our Errata page on our website and please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification while you sew (simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org). We’re really really sorry about this error – we will be providing several easy cutting and sewing methods throughout the sew along for you to use if you have purchased this edition of the pattern!
