I suck at making cloths. I've tried before, and I am not good at it. I think I actually suck at patterns, so I decided to try something easy: PJ pants. And they came out alright, so I'm sharing. (It was supposed to be one of those two hour patterns and it took me longer than that. Whatever 3 episodes of Blackpool adds up to...)



And a close up, just because I LOVE this fabric:



Let me know what you think, or if you have suggestions for doing a better job next time Smiley

They look great. I love the fabric. If it makes you feel better it always takes me twice as long to make anything Smiley It looks like you did a fantastic job.

Good job! They look like PJ pants, so well done (and with a difficult fabric too! At least it looks like it's slippery and shiny).

If you want to learn to sew quicker then I suggest that you just sew a lot. Repeat this project a couple of times and then move on to something more challenging, try small variations to this pattern or different fabrics. Sewing is a skill, so it's possible to learn it, but not without practise. So practise, practise and practise.

This fabric is fantastic!!!!  I think they guess at how long a project will take on those patterns...it always takes me longer too.  I will admit that I do get faster after using the same pattern over a couple of times.  I don't think they calculate the reading and re-reading of the pattern 50 times when making it the 1st time!

The PJ's are lovely. You did an excellent job. It is better to sew slowly and accurately then to go fast and sloppy. Most items take longer then you think. The suggested time is usually just to sew it up, not the time cutting it out and marking it. It take time to line up the fabric before cutting to match the design on the fabric. A well made item is an enjoyment to wear. Also if you make an error it takes time to think of a way to make that mistake into designer detail.

I love your fabric! I've been sewing for quite a few years now and I still have to rip out seams because I didn't quite do it right. It takes time and practice. Great job!
