Summer Sewing

I love, and I mean LOVE, my Simplicity 8022 pajama pants.

(Seen here , here and here)

I have pairs made out of flannel and cotton.

I have gotten more than my moneys worth out of this pattern (although, I paid on $.99 for it).

I really needed some summer pajama bottoms.

I tried a Butterick pattern, and well, I honestly don’t know how I messed it up so bad.

Honestly, I didn’t even take pictures as it was sewn all wrong and quickly went in the trash.

I will try it again (I like the length of them), but in the mean time I really wanted some to wear during a hot streak we were having.

Simplicity 8022 to the rescue!

All I did was fold up the legs of that pattern and cut the fabric.

Using quilting cotton from Joann’s that I purchased long ago, I was able to sew two pairs quickly.


Super comfy and a very quick sew (can I say that enough?).


This is honestly such an easy pattern, I totally recommend #8022 for beginners.

I also made progress on my Marly Bird Spring KAL socks (I’m way behind).


All I have left are the toes!

These will be great to wear around the house!

A friend gave me some KnitPicks yarn which I plan on making into ankle socks (ankle socks are more to my liking).

I am also at the ribbing section of my Faux Fair Isle Poncho.

All in all, a good week!

Have a great week!

    That’s a great idea – to make PJ shorts from the pants pattern! And I like how you used quilting cotton too. My mum bought me these cotton elastic pants from UNIQLO but their waists are too damn small. I’m going to end up giving them away unless I scrap them for zipper pouches…hmmm..that may be a better idea. I bought that breakfast flannel! I wanted another pair of flannel bottoms to kick around in at home.
