I wanted something comfy and warm to lounge around in this winter, what is more comfortable than flannel PJ pants!  I made these using the Simplicity 2061 pattern.  Joanne was running a sale and the pattern cost 0.99 cents, score!  They are the fist pair of pants that I have ever sewn and the first clothing article I have finished (I have a jacket from Simply Chic but it is not done yet).  They are not perfect - the side seam of the casing and the pants do not line up but it is really not that noticeable and for some reason the one pocket doesn't sit flat.  Other than those 2 things they turned out good and I am happy!  I plan on making another pair in a really cute monkey fabric that I also purchased on sale.









As always C&C welcome! Smiley

It's really chilly here today and your flannel PJ pants have got me thinking it's time to try to make myself a pair!  I really like the fabric you chose!

Great job! They're super cute! I'd love to give making pants a try but I'm a bit afraid to because something like that pocket not laying flat would drive me up a wall Tongue

Great job. Love the details around the drawstring and the pockets.

Lol, it is driving me a little crazy, but I think I'll be able to look past it since they are so snuggly.   Grin

Thanks all for the kind comments, when the other pair is done I will post them as well.  Hopefully they will have pockets that sit flat, lol!

They look great for being your first pair of pants. And pockets can always be abit tricky.
