i love the fabric you used and the little skull. Ok I know this is an old thread so you may not even read it.

And I just made quite possibly the most comfortable pants ever. I used a pants pattern from a costume and left the bottoms without elastic. They are so incredibly wide legged and I used comfy $1 fabric. I want to live in them. Ok so I will find my camera and see if I can take some pics

Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.

Well, I'm feeling a bit guity after the post in News and Discussions that some are annoyed by old posts being brought up, but I would like to join this sewalong. All of my pajama pants are too small and I don't like buying any because they aren't my style. But, uh, I don't have a pattern? Does anyone have a free pattern I could use? I'm a very, very, very beginner sewer.

Yay a place to post my pj bottoms. 

I used the pattern for wrap pants.  Instructions http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161380.0.

If you put in elastic in the waist and close the sides with a seam you get this (images are clickable):

I'm sewing myself some pj pants but I need to redo the top so I'll post back later Cheesy
Mine are fine without elastic, but for future reference how do you sew elastic at the top?
« Reply #38 on: April 27, 2007 10:59:11 AM »

Instead of making ties, I put in a hem at the waist that is wide enough to put in elastic.  Don't close the hem all the way--so you will have room to guide the elastic through--then close the hem with the elastic inside.  I usually stitch-in-the-ditch, to keep the elastic from rolling on me.  Instructions: http://learnhowtoquilt.com/stitchditch.html

Good Luck!

Tada! Done Cheesy

and the back

Not perfect but pretty good when you consider that I haven't sewn on a machine for yonks and I made up the pattern...
