My 2nd "garment" project!  And boy oh boy, I am so glad I figured out that my secret plastic drawer is detachable so I can do “free arm” sewing.  SO much easier when sewing the crotch area, waistband, and leg openings, whee!!!!  I guess that's the good part abot being a noob, always learning Wink

Back before I first made my jammie bottoms using McCalls 4979, I was concerned they might be too big since I’m slim petite gal.  Still, I made the jammie bottoms (they are posted to craftster) and was thrilled with how they turned out and will continue to use 4979 to make more jammie bottoms!  But, back when I bought 4979, JoAnns was having a 99 cent pattern sale, so I also bought McCalls 3432 which is a junior’s pajama pattern.  I used McCalls 3432 to make the sleep boxers.  The boxers came out great.  The only thing I would do different next time (I have some cupcake fabric I bought and set aside for my next pair of sleep boxers) is add maybe an extra half inch of “ease” to each side the leg.  And *maybe* alter the pattern so that the each short leg flares out a bit.  But, overall, I am still quite happy with how they came out!

Thanks for looking!
