I have to say thank you to Ann for having the brilliant idea for a jammie sew along this weekend. It sure gave me the incentive I needed to make my boys some cuddly long-legged versions for this winter. Now that I have their patterns traced out, I'll be on the lookout for 3 more cute flannels to make them one more pair next month.
Here are my final two pairs. The first one is for my oldest DS. He just wanted plain, red, flannel, pants. I noticed working with this color red made my eyes feel funny, so I am glad I am done with them! I made the XL, but used 5/8" seams instead of the 1/4" allowance. They came out a bit slimmer, which is what I wanted. The Kwik Sew pattern envelope can be found in my previous post.
I used New Look 6005, view D to make my pj pants. I cut the size 10 and took in an extra 1/2" on the side seams. I like how they turned out. The crotch curve fits well without any adjustments. I also like the waistband height. The pattern states they are to be worn 1" below your natural waist. I made two buttonholes on the front casing for my drawstring. I am showing them with my shirt tucked in so you can see the details, but I will wear them with my shirt on the outside.
I thought I'd leave you with a sample of the size of foliage you can see here in Maui. This was taken yesterday on our hike. Impressive eh? I'm not sure what is next in the sewing queue, but I am going to have fun thinking about about it, and I'll let you know as soon as I figure it out. Have a fantastic week everyone!
