I went on a mini pajama making spree and ended up with one cotton stripe pair and one cotton chambray pair. The shorts are loosely based on the Maritime Shorts with quite a few changes. I omitted the pockets, changed the hem and added a true gym short style side bias bound seam. For the elastic waist I went up a size (cause who wants fitted pajama shorts, not me) and straightened the side seams from the widest point of the hips up. For the top started with the pattern I used to create the polka dot top from last week, adjusted the neckline and added a split back for fanciness. Blogged here
