Happy PJs

My pajamas pants have been getting threadbare lately and since pj pants must be the easiest garment to make, it'd be a shame not to make some myself. I got 2 yards of this fun quilting cotton at Mill End Textiles thinking I'd have more than plenty, forgetting that quilting is narrower than apparel fabric. I eked these out of 2 yards by using smaller seam allowances.

The pattern is from Ottobre 6-2009-39, which is a kids' issue. Since the pattern goes all the way up to 170 cm height, and since my other measurements fit within the given parameters,
I though I'd give it a try. I cut the pattern for height 164cm. They fit, and are even a little long, but you can see they're not nearly terribly baggy. Next time I make these, I'll add 2 or 3 inches to the height of the waistband since these are sitting right on the hip bone.I definitely plan to make more pairs of these. Besides their obvious use, I often wear these in evening as lounge pants. Or ... since that's usually when I'm sewing, you might call these stitchin' pants.


  1. nice job.....these look great....

  2. Cute! I am needing some for myself too. They may also be my next project after I finish the ones I am currently working on for my youngest DS.


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
