Underwear wears out so why not make a few special pairs for yourself or your special someone. This post is a men’s underwear free pattern roundup.
In my experience it’s a lot easier to find free patterns for women’s underwear than for men’s. In fact, I found it much easier to find children’s underwear patterns for girls and boys than men’s underwear patterns. I find this strange as there are just as many men as women and there are men who sew. There are several men’s underwear patterns available online for purchase. If you’re not sure you want to commit to a pattern purchase or are unsure of your sewing skills, this post is for you. I’ve scoured the internet for free unisex and men’s underwear sewing patterns so that you don’t have to.

This free video tutorial shows you how to use an existing pair of men’s briefs as a template and an old t-shirt to make a new pair of men’s briefs.

There are far fewer unisex and men’s underwear free patterns available compared to women’s underwear patterns. Fortunately the free patterns that are available cover a variety of styles. If these styles are similar, but not exactly, what you’re looking for, they may be a good place for creating custom pairs of underwear.
