Happy 4th of July to the USA folks out there! I hope y'all are getting to relax and have some fun. I'm getting my sew on this long weekend.
|I HAD to have these PJ shorts I found at Goodwill!|
|Look at the little koala faces! Too cute! Problem: shorts are XS. My booty: NOT XS by any stretch of the imagination|
|I unpicked the sides (the 'hip' seams) and then snipped the elastic|
|Here you can see the whole picture with the front and back separated at the waist.|
|Pinned in the panels. On the right side, you can see my panel is extending beyond the top edge of the shorts. This is so I could fold it over and make a casing for the piece of elastic I would be adding to make the waist bigger.|
|Sewn in, but no casing and elastic yet|
|But here they are! Sorry for the terrible leg photo|
|On the sewing table, so you can see the whole thing|
|Here's the back. But wait! What's that?|
|A pocket! I really prefer my loungewear/PJs to have some kind of pocket in case I need to throw in my phone or something. This pocket was taken whole off of a top I previously refashioned. I think it's kind of like eucalyptus leaves :D|
And there ya have it! Not bad IMO for a first attempt at 'pants' refashioning. They are so comfy and fit perfectly. I'm even wearing them right now as I write this post :)
Back to the machine!
