Well I'm guessing yeah it will work, I think my question is will it look too funky or bad?

I want to make one piece pj's for my kids, no footies, I'm making stuffed slippers instead, I'm making Max pj's for them, so the hoods and feet will be removable for sleeping.  I couldn't find patterns in thier sizes, so I'm drafting the pattern, except the pj's they have have raglon type sleeves, never done those.  Finally I gave up and drew out the pattern by tracing around half of a set of pj's, with the arm out and traced around that too.  So before I make THE CUT, will cutting the sleeves attached to the main piece like look ok? 

OK as I'm thinking this thru, I'm thinking that if I cut the arm off the body at an angle, it becomes a raglon sleeve, right?  Then reattach that way, this way I don't have two seams on the arm but one under the arm where it should be.   Roll Eyes  I way over think these things sometimes.

BTW, I'm using fleece to create these pj's.

I wouldn't cut the sleeves and body all as one piece.  It makes the underarm really uncomfortable.  (I had a costume that was made this way.)  Whatthecraft has a tute, I think, for converting set in sleeves to raglan.  Or a tute that you could use for that purpose.
