Description

It gets hot at night in the South, and my long pajama pants are way too thermal: so lately I’ve been putting together some pj shorts. This fabric was 60% off at Joann Fabrics, and since I love pirates, I bought it. I used my old stand-by pj pattern, Simplicity 3696. I put a single welt pocket in the back to hold my iPod, and used a skull print scrap I already had. I tacked down the lower corners of the pocket with two small buttons on the outside. I also added a decorative velvet ribbon tie in the front.
It was a really easy project, and only took me probably four hours. They are really comfortable too!

Material Notes

3/4 yard of brown pirate print cotton, 8″ × 4″ scrap of black & white skull print cotton for welt, 1/8 yard brown pocket lining, 1/2 yard double-sided 1/2" velvet ribbon, 2 brown 1/4" buttons, thread.
