I did everything right!  Except the part where I was supposed to check and make sure the fabric pattern was going in the right direction. :/  Oh well.  They are just pajama pants. 

I used Kwik Sew Pattern 3602.  The pattern was pretty easy except it did get needlessly complicated when it came time to do the waist part.  Good thing I am part of sewing meetup.  Experienced sewers showed me an easier way. 

Also, one bad thing about the pattern is that if you are making a Large or Extra Large in this pattern, the waist is WAY too high.  You need to cut the pattern to the medium waist, otherwise you will look like Urkel when you wear them.  I've made this pattern three times, one time with the XL waist (which I later cutoff and resewed lower with some help), and with the Large waist (still too tall but manageable).  The Medium waist height is the normal natural waist.  I don't know why some pattern makers think that because you are 2 inches wider you must also be 2 inches taller.

I like the pattern that way. Don't monkeys hang upside-down sometimes?

Great for pajama bottoms/house pants.

Very nice and thanks for the advice about the pattern.  That sort of thing is always very useful to the rest of us.
