I guess I felt like I needed to post my first machine project. XD
In my "Intro to Family and Consumer Science" class last year, we made a pair of PJ pants each for our final grade. It was fun and hectic working on it in class [especially the last day], and I never finished it [the sewing machine's in class were all taken by people who were way behind and had a buttload of work to do, so I didn't get it hemmed], but I do enjoy them.

the pants:

Made from Simplicity 9871 [I think that's the right number...] I can't tell you if the pattern is easy to use or not, cuz of the teacher's step-by-step instructions. I guess it was alright. But, you gotta follow the size chart. So many of the kids [including me] went up a size for more comfort and ended up with pants that were too big! [that's why mine look a bit saggy... I made the XL, and I needed the L...]
I made these months ago, so they've gone through a lot of wear. I did hem it after I got to take it home, so it's the right length. The stitches are horrendous, as this was my first time using a sewing machine... And somehow, when I sewed the elastic ends together, it got twisted. since it was sewn that way, I can't fix it unless I take it apart, and do not want to do that, so it'll stay that way.
alright, I'm done talking...

You can never have too many pairs of pj pants! I'd wear them all day every day if I could Smiley.

Yours turned out great. This was a big project for your first machine sewing experience. Marvelous job!

XD thanks!
I'm thinking about making another pair, since I saved the pattern. [probably the only kid in the class that did...] Just gotta get more materials. I'll probably use a softer fabric, because the kind I used is a bit odd for jammy material.

Those look really nice, especially for being your first time sewing! Smiley
