Pyjamas for the lasses

My younger is 15 and wanted a new pair of woven joggers. A style that frankly baffles me, but I am not the client. Miss 20 wanted warm pyjama bottoms. Both were happy with an elastic waisted loose pant pattern and both asked for pockets.

Out came McCalls 2376 and I traced off a size 10. For Miss 15 I added some length while cutting out. For Miss 20 I trimmed the outer leg seams a bit. Yes, Miss 15 is taller than Miss 20. Almost everyone is.

Both lasses looked through the fabric stash. The elder claimed the dachshund fabric, the younger claimed the teal/red border print. The dachshund fabric is a flannelette from Peter Alexander and was $2.00 a metre from a fabric jobber. The teal fabric was a gift from a friend. It is a beautiful cotton lawn.


I drafted an in-seam pocket:

Both have “It has pockets” labels:

The details

Pattern – used many times – free

Teal fabric – a gift

Dachshund fabric – 3 metres at $2.00 = $6.00

Elastic – approximately $4.00

Labels – $1.00 each = $2.00

Totals – $12.00

Do it again?  That’s a given!

Miss 15 decided to not bother with elastic in the hems. Miss 20 agreed to a picture – of the pyjamas.

    That damned, elusive photograph!
    I love woven track pants, I have a pair of stretch denim/wool ones I wear every morning. They are warmer and look a bit snappier.

    The pants look great, that teal fabric is very pretty.
