These are the simplest thing to make. Good starter project. You can use any pants pattern and omit the zip and waist band. Using just the part for the legs, sew the legs togeather and fold the top, where the waste band would be, sew the fold and thread an elastic or cord into the fold. Ta Da! lounge pants.
What ever you like. These are made of jersey but cotton or cotton blends work fine too.
