Thank you so much, I have been looking for inexpensive pant patterns for my grandsons who just turned three.
But I have seen pants with the elastic sewn along the top seam and then turned under and hemmed. Now, my question is, how difficult is this to do or if I purchas pajama elastic, as you suggest, will that eliminate the twisting or at least the uncomfortableness that I had experienced. Just wanted to mention… I made Kitty Hammocks out of used pillowcases and stuffed with batting. I put loops on all 4 corners and purchased metal hooks a. They were made to clip on the cages of shelter cats. And most of the cats and kittens loved them.
Making these was a very good learning experience! And I think it would be a good project for a group of young girls or boys to do, and donate to their local shelter. The solution for you elastic twisting is simple. No more twisted elastic! And, a few happy kitties. My two girls, 15mths. All that was needed was to make one longer than the other while cutting the flare.
Love your Nancy Zieman Adjustable ruler. Just wondering if……Is it cheaper to buy another 99 cents pattern to make second pair of different size PJ or cheaper to get tracing paper and reuse same pattern for other sizes?
Any ideas what I did wrong? Send me a photo via email and maybe I can see what happened. I stitched the each front to a back like in the instructions. One more question I have is after I did that and then opened up them up and put them together as in Step 3, the front of the shorts had one front piece and one back piece and the back of the shirts were the same. Is it supposed to be like that? I have been a seamstress for 45 years and love the tutorial.
I am teaching adults sewing techniques this next weekend. I enjoyed your tutorial and would like to use it for the class. I did notice something that made me scratch my head. I think that might make for a pretty loose fitting. This gives some snugness to the pants but not so snug it is uncomfortable.
The tie assures the pants will not slip down. What do you think? I know this is especially true for young children without any hips to hold the pants up if the elastic becomes looser from frequent washings. Looking forward to your comments. I do it this way in order for the pj bottoms to be loose fitting.
Because there is an actual drawstring, the waist is able to be adjusted. I know they could be more snug, but we love them where they barely hang on! How do you add a button up crotch to this pattern? Great instructions, thanks for your excellent post. Hi I am a new sewer and I am trying to make the pajama same pattern for my 20 yrs daughter but the problem is even the S size is very large for her how can I reduce the widht of pajama overall.
Will be very grateful if you tell me how to reduce the width. Thank you for excellent post. I suggest you look for a pattern designed specifically for a woman. The smaller size should fit on top of the first pair of pants and then you can cut down to the correct size. Thank you so much for this. Thanks for this tutorial, I struggled with my first pair until I found your directions, then I made 4 more pairs for my sons and their friends!!
And make them super fast now!! My sons friend came over and decided to spend the night, and had nothing comfortable to wear, I said, I can take care of that, whipped up some pajama pants in no time!! Will rush home and finish them tonight! Your directions are very clear but I have one question. I want to put on the tie and followed you up to making the buttonholes and adding the elastic. The step I am confused on is do you sew the ties down or just thread them through the two button holes?
Will they actually allow the person to draw the pants up? Again, thank you for doing this. I am going to check out your directions on making a button hole since it has been a few years and a new machine! After unpacking items from a recent move, i noticed the packing paper was still in fairly decent shape. I ironed the paper and used it to trace the pj pattern; strong enough to with stand many uses ; if i can just manage to quit shaving off the edges with each use.
COuld you please help me? Step 2—back and front together, right sides facing. By the way, I love your site! The twill tape is not attached. Is is a drawstring that is threaded in one end and out the other. I always find it difficult to understand the pattern instruction.
Therefore has hindered me in my sewing and i end up frustrated. The tie allows you to make the elastic loose. Having the tie allows you to cinch it to your level of comfort. Thank you for the great read. Do you know if this Simplicity pattern can be used to make pajama shorts?
I have made many shorts, pants, and pajamas, I am glad you simplified the language of the pattern. I wish you could help me get a perfect fit pair of shorts for my 3yr old grand daughter who really is a 2t. Do you have any experience with textile digital printing? I used the recommended fabric on the pattern. Nope — but spoonflower. Flannel is great for cold climates, but quilting weight cotton works, too. If you live in a warm climate, voile would be great. It would be nice if this information was in a printable format instead of a slide show.
