    I Have A Pajama Pants Pattern Recommendation

    In case you're looking for a pattern, I used Simplicity 8022 this morning and it's perfect. You just need fabric, elastic and thread. It's one pattern piece with easy instructions. I had fun making these pajama pants. Good thing, because I have enough flannel to make six more pair.

    These are little Dachshund doggies in sweaters. So cute.

    I love those & need a new pair right now! Yours are absolutely precious with those dogs. I looked up the pattern online & found this site that even has a tutorial for those who have never made pants before.

    Thanks so much for the super pattern - I’m a Quilter and not a seamstress- haven’t seen clothing for a very long time - but I think I can handle this pattern ������. Just need to wait for a good sale in Simplicity at Joann’s

    Nice PJ's and my favorite motif!

    I've been making my pj's pants for a long time, but seem to have lost my pattern. I'll have to look at this one.

    I also make my own pj's because I need pockets. Ever notice they don't put pockets in women's pj's but they do in mens. Why?

    Your pajama pants look cozy...thank you for sharing. Everyone needs a few pairs of cozy pj bottoms.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Ooops, this pattern does not have pockets. I don't have a need for pockets in my pj pants. I never mentioned that in my recommendation.

    I've made PJ bottoms before and enjoyed doing it. My favorite ones are made from soft sheets that I found at Salvation Army...so soft and silky and a lot of material in a sheet. Sometimes I can also get a pair of boxers for myself out of the sheet also to wear in the hot summer months.

    For pockets, you could add "patch pockets" on the front of each leg or even on the back of the pants. You can google "how to make a patch pocket & there are you tubes that show how to make them. Here's a video on how to make a patch pocket.

    I had to add a pocket to the pajama pants I made for DD. I cut two 6.5" squares being careful to check for directional fabric and get them in the right orientation. I sewed them right sides together on three sides, clipped the corners, turned it right side out. I turned the edges of the open end in to finished the square and I make that side the bottom of the pocket. I position the pocked on the top of the right hand leg and sewed it to the leg on three sides. It looks good and now you can tell the front from the back of the pants. I added pockets to each of the pants I made for myself.

    found that pattern and made 8 pairs in time for Christmas! Added a pocket on the side before I sewed them up-worked great!

    Thanks for all the heads up on this pattern. I needed to find a pattern like this so that I can customize it for my size and length. I am so tired of having to shorten everything I buy. This way it is one and done!

    I've made several pairs using this pattern, I added patch pockets and tapered the legs, the legs are a bit wide for my taste.

    The easiest pattern ever is the one from Tightwad Gazette. Love those books! The instructions are about two paragraphs with a couple of pictures. I can have pair of pj made in about 1/2 hour or less. I'll see if I can find the pattern online and post a link.

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
