One more question I have is after I did that and then opened up them up and put them together as in Step 3, the front of the shorts had one front piece and one back piece and the back of the shirts were the same. I do it this way in order for the pj bottoms to be loose fitting. If you are not inserting a tag just use a ribbon to coordinate with you fabric.
Thanks for the pattern. I tried to download without borders as you suggested, but could not. First and foremost, thank you Marzi for the awesome tutorial and free patterns! This was my first attempt at sewing toddler pants and it was a huge success.
I have a 23 month old who is in the 75th percentile for height and weight and I ended up using the size 6 months pattern. Once I assembled the pattern for 2T it looked huge, so I compared it to his 18 mo and 2T pants that currently fit and the pattern was way too big.
I marked on the paper where the 1. Even so, it ended up longer than his current 2T pants which was what I wanted so he can get more wear out of them in the next year. I hope this helps someone who is wondering about the sizing.
I already bought a second fabric to make him another pair of pants! Just wanted to thank you for sharing your talents with the rest of us: I am making jammies for charity and have tried various patterns.
Yours worked out absolutely perfect. I also adjusted the leg and made shorts as summer is approaching. Thank you so much. Slso, that looks great and will match capirs. Thank you for the awesome pattern! I have a question- because I have been dying to sew comfy and cool cotton pj pants for myself- for so long! How would you suggest making this a size for adults? Thanks and be well, Danette: I love this pattern! Thank you so much for sharing! Your website is lovely!
Thank you so much for sharing this. It sounds like the sizes run a bit big. Measure waist size and add width maybe an inch or 2? Thank you for this pattern, I just made up a couple of pairs for my girls ages 2 and 4 and they fit beautifully. I think someone asked about using cotton instead of flannel and I was wondering if anyone used this pattern to make fleece pants for their child.
Love the pattern and the tutorial. I definitely noticed though that the pattern sizes are HUGE compared to typical measurements. For example, I used the pattern to make lounge pants for my 10 month old.
He typically wears 12 or 18 month pants. I ended up using the 6 month pattern size and they are still pretty big. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your expertise AND your willingness to go the extra mile. I would of had to guess on the length for my 8yo granddaughter, and, not only that I would of had to make and insert the paper needed for the length.
Thank you for not being lazy! There is a better way to get this measurement. Using a large safety pin, insert the elastic into the casing and thread the elastic all the way around the casing until it comes out the other side.
Adjust the elastic gathers evenly around the waist. I recommend getting Pajama Elastic which is softer and less constricting than regular elastic. Then carefully stitch it down using a zigzag stitch. The final step is to hem the pajama pants. You will need the waist-to-floor measurement of the person who will be wearing the pajama pants. Mark the length and turn under just like you did for the elastic casing. And you are done! Now for the best part. On this pair of Pajama Pants I eliminated the tie because they are for a child who is under age 2.
Great instructions — instead of marking the pattern pieces just remember the back side is bigger than the front side on everybody — so the bigger curved seam is the back. Good way to remember. Years and years ago I made palazzo pant. First effort, I learned this lesson. I sewed the inside front to the outside back leg. This is a great idea for gifts, everyone wears them these days. Question, is the twill tape threaded around the waist band or is it sewn to the elastic?
Thanks for this added info. I have to make some for my son-in-law and was wondering how I was going to do elastic and tie. I prefer them to be separate because the elastic holds the pants up but the twill tape allows you to cinch them for comfort.
Thanks for posting this. I always think it is ideal to start with a pattern when you are learning to sew. This one is great. Be sure to trace off the designs and you will be able to make this pattern over and over again. I love this tutorial! How far apart do you space the buttonholes, or did I miss that?
Thank you so much, I have been looking for inexpensive pant patterns for my grandsons who just turned three. Anything I found was like 4 or 5 dollars and not their size.
I will also Pin it to my pinterest. One of my grandsons said he wants me to make him Batman and Spider-Man pajama bottoms! Thanks for these terrific instructions. What a great idea — I never thought of adding the twill tape to allow the elastic to be a bit looser. That would be much more comfortable! I use a different pattern but it is just as easy. My sewing room is full of scraps and thread. It is crazy this time a year. I LOVE your tutorial! I pinned for myself and featured you on my fb and SO glad you linked up through my blog — pretty please come back next week so I can see your next amazing project!
Thank you for explaining sewing terms so they are much easier to understand. Patterns make me crazy some times! You should have seen me trying to flip a purse the right way once. I love this pattern! A few notes on the pattern itself. Usually this is an easy fix of just turning the hem allowance down one more time. Stretch your own limits by trying it out on different types of fabrics; add a contrasting cuff at the bottom hem, or a ruffled edge for little girls, etc.
So, you could do these in cotton or knit? It seldom gets cold enough for flannel where I live. Any suggestions for working with knit? Is that material harder to work with? I almost exclusively make these in cotton. Knit would be great, but they could stretch when sewing.
You may want to find a pattern for knits — but then assemble them using my instructions. Many thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this site. Also I have purchased two of her apron patterns — and they are fabulous! Clear, concise instructions — they go together like a dream, and are so flattering. I love to make PJs but I got a question. Someone told me it was easy and simple to add a ruffle, flounce, cuff to the bottom of the pjs but I have had the hardest time getting this to work out.
It is either to long or to short. This is really hard to answer in a short reply. I suggest you look for a Simplicity or McCalls pattern that has these additions. They will give you the proper measurements and ways to easily add or deduct. I just slap on a piece of freezer tape with an F or a B on the inside of the fabric.
Next time you go to the doctor ask to buy a roll of paper they use for the exam tables. My dr actually gave me a roll. Works great when making your own patterns. I sewn a pair of pjs years ago, but the elastic kept twisting and was very uncomfortable.
Probably had the wrong type of elastic! But I have seen pants with the elastic sewn along the top seam and then turned under and hemmed. Now, my question is, how difficult is this to do or if I purchas pajama elastic, as you suggest, will that eliminate the twisting or at least the uncomfortableness that I had experienced.
Just wanted to mention… I made Kitty Hammocks out of used pillowcases and stuffed with batting. Ensure that you have cut the pieces from a central fold fabric piece so that the the pieces are mirror images. If you have fabric with no distinct right and wrong sides this doesnot matter, but you generally have fabrics with right sides and wrong sides so you have to be careful when you cut pieces so that you donot get 2 left front pieces or 2 right front pieces- which is a disaster I have made once or twice.
You live and learn; rather cut and learn. Make pattern for the sash pocket. Keep the top of the pant front piece outer seam on an A4 paper some one -two inch from the top and side of the paper. Trace the outline of the top edge and side edge. Mark the rest of the pocket fully on the paper. Complete the pocket pattern by curving the left side as in the picture below. This is the pattern for the pocket.
Cut out the pocket piece from the fabric. I have cut a contrasting piece. You can cut from the same pant fabric. Finish the edges with a zig zag stitch or overcast stitch or serger. Ensure that when you are cutting left and write pocket pieces they are mirror images ; and not the same. Just like for the pant pieces. You can get these by cutting fabric on fold.
Cut two fabric strips 1. Fold them by half and press. Keep the piece on the slash opening from the right side, raw edges together. Turn the binding to the wrong side. Pin in place and top stitch. Your slash opening facing is done. Mark the outline of the pocket piece on the top of the pant piece. Stitch from the top of the pant piece. This will join the pocket to the pant and complete the pocket construction. Stitch the front leg piece and back leg piece outerseam, right sides together.
Join the Inseams of the legs, right sides together till the crotch line donot sew up the crotch line now. You now have two pant legs ready. Join the crotch line of the pant piece. You can do this any way. I have inserted one leg inside the other, the outer leg is turned inside out and inner one right side out.
Now the right sides are pressed together and the crotch seam is easily accessible to be stitched together. Now you have the pant ready. Measure the top edge of the pant piece.
