I made pajama bottoms!
Long ago, I purchases Craftsy.com’s Learn To Sew Pajama Pants and I finally did the class.
I purchased enough fabric to make three pairs (my favorite pajama bottoms are literally falling apart and it is time for new ones).
All similar pattern, just different colors (sort of a vintage 40’s pattern).
(The above picture is the most accurate representation of the color)
This first pair, I went super simple…no added contrast cuffs and no alterations.
I like bottoms very loose so I chose to make XL.
They are super loose in the thigh (although, I like that) and fit well at the waist with the elastic.
Luckily, I had the correct elastic in my stash of notions (learned something new, I thought all elastic was the same and now I know what is better for this type of project).
The teacher was awesome and the explanations/instructions were clear and concise.
For my next pair, I plan on either making a XL and altering my seams to make them a tad smaller, or biting the bullet and trying a L.
I also plan on making contrasting cuffs.
I have a feeling I am going to have an entire drawer of new pajama bottoms!
Have a great weekend!
