Tartan PJ Pants

Is anyone else as enamoured with Peter Alexander sleepwear as I am? Their designs are fabulous and made with the softest of cottons and silks. So when I was in need of some flanny PJ pants for the winter, I decided to trace my favourite pair of Peter Alexander PJs to use as a pattern.

I traced some freehand and some using pins along the seamlines, making sure to include the pockets. The plaid was uneven both ways (gah!) so I used these handy-dandy references: http://library.ndsu.edu/tools/dspace/load/?file=/repository/bitstream/handle/10365/17184/A-492-1966.pdf?sequence=1 Of course, after hours of careful cutting, I matched the seam line of the back to the cut line of the front! (RAGE!) So I put some piping in the side seam to distract the eye :)

I’m pretty pleased with the results – the pants are as comfy as all get out and should keep me warm this winter.

(Featuring my fantastic ‘Death to the Daleks’ Doctor Who t-shirt! Jon Pertwee all the way, baby!)
