Perfect Pajama Pants

Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a big cotton dress that I didn't know what to do with. It had a really strong pattern to it. I decided to make some cozy pajama pants out of it.

I used a pattern for boxer shorts because it was all I had. I placed the pattern on the dress at the height I needed to keep the side pockets at hip height in the pants. I wanted to save the pockets if I could. The length of the dress would determine how long the pants were. I just extended the pattern to the bottom of the dress.

 I cut out my pattern pieces and started sewing. I made a casing for an elastic waistband. It took a little longer than it should have because I stitched the legs together. I had to unpick all the stitches and start over. Oops!

They turned out fine in the end. I didn't try to match my kitchen, it just happened like that. I really like blue and white.

Thanks for reading, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

Thanks for your postings on making robes, nightgowns, and pajamas- all color-coordinated! I'm inspired to do the same! Nightwear can be as stylish as daywear!
