I bought myself a pajama outfit, a cute comfy tee and matching pants, without trying them on first. The shirt fits fine, as I knew it would, but the pants... the pants. I can get them on, but they're not exactly... flattering...

They're way too tight! And it makes me sad, cuz they're the cutest monkey material, and sooo comfy. So my question is, what should I do with these? I can't think of any non-ugly ways to make them bigger, but I don't want them to go to waste. Any suggestions?

You could always add an extra strip of fabric to the sides.  All you need is some fabric that goes well with your pants and decent sewing skills.  If you want to do something like this let me know. I'd be more than happy to help with a few directions and pictures.

You know, at first I was thinking there was no way I wanted to do that, but upon further consideration I almost wouldn't mind. I'll have to find some fabric that is good with the pants. You're willing to help with directions? That would be awesome. I'm a bit of a sewing n00b. I can do it, I just need specific directions. And stuff.

Id love to help Smiley  Is the waistband elastic or drawstring? Is there anyway you wouldnt mind loosing a few inches on the top of the pants so that you could make a new waistband because that might be easier?
