Wide leg, cotton pajamas with a drawstring using New Look 6160. Super easy pattern.


I made a few changes. I'm short so I had to take a lot of length off the legs. I made the legs narrower at the bottoms because as is they were 31 inches around (each!) and it looked really stupid plus it seemed like a waste of fabric. The waist was higher than I like so I cut a bunch off that too. And I added a contrasting waistband because I was so freaking sick of looking at purple at that point. Do you ever work on a project and hate it by the time you're done? Lol I made these a month ago and finally could put them on today.
Anyway, close-up so you can see the colors better.


And here is Harvey helping me take them in.


Oh yeah, don't trust the pattern size guide. According to the envelope I needed a size 18. By the time I was done they were 12. So cut them out, pin the sides, and try them on before sewing so you don't spend countless hours ripping out seams.
I love them now that I've had some distance and I plan on making more over the summer. Happy Crafting!

Never trust the size guide! So true....

Cute color choices, and the contrasting band is a nice touch too. I agree, without it, it would be a bit monochrome as well as monotonous. Great prints on each!

Sometimes when I read the size guide I cry...I would be a much higher size than I ever end up being.

Ive used that pattern before thinking "okay, pj pants, how hard could they be?" and i ended up having to rip apart seams at least three times and re sewing to take them in drastically.  it will probably be awhile until i sew another pair of pj pants again.  and i totally hated them at the end too.  they fit fine, i also just never wanted to look at them again.
