Some pajama pants for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend. I figure she probably has no idea about this site, which is why I think it’s safe to post these :)
I started with a pattern (Simplicity 4889), but realized how humungous they would have been once I had cut them. So, I shrunk them quite a bit and adjusted as I thought necessary. I also took the waist down a bit (it was very very high), and added the satin trim and a patch pocket. I would not recommend this pattern… :) There have to be better ones out there, but it’s extremely hard to tell from the pictures/descriptions.
See my blog for more info
Flannel, ribbon, poly satin for the trim, elastic, interfacing
