fresh new pj's


 I made some new pj pants, just like I said I would.  I have actually been wanting to make these for quite some time, and it was so refreshing to just sit down and do it.  I have such a large stack of vintage sheets, and I knew that would be the perfect thing to make these out of, super comfy and soft.



Instead of taking a pattern from a pair of pj pants I already had, I thought I would save some time and use the Amy Butler lounge pant pattern from her In Stitches book.  I altered the leg shape a bit by making it slightly less wide and added just a bit of curve to give them a wide boot cut shape leg.  I was a bit disappointed in the way the Amy Butler pattern fit around my booty, though.  The pattern didn't have enough curve in it, and ended up making my booty look like it was completely flat.  Thankfully, these are just pajama pants, and a flattering fit is not very important while sleeping.
