Set includes a long-sleeve top and matching drawstring-waist pants. I have to make some for my son-in-law and was wondering how I was going to do elastic and tie.
Thank you, your code is:
This will be shaped like a the letter U. Pin this together then stitch. This step is pretty straight forward. With right sides together match up the two side seams and pin. It should now look like a pair of pants. Stitch the front to the back at the side seams. Press open the seams and then turn the pajama pants inside out. Notice how I have used a serger to finish my seams. This is an additional step that is not a part of the pattern directions and is completely optional.
When I sew pajama pants I like my elastic to be pretty loose for comfort. In order to tighten the waist a bit I add in a tie. This way I can be comfortable and keep my PJ pants from falling off. I like to use twill tape for my ties. You can always make your own tie using the leftover fabric.
Here are the directions on How to Make Bias Tape if you want to make matching ties. For more information, I have a tutorial on making the perfect buttonhole. Before you sew the buttonholes I strongly encourage you to stabilize the back of your buttonholes with a small piece of tear away stabilizer. This will keep your buttonholes from bunching up and tunneling. Be sure to leave an opening to insert the elastic and twill tape.
The instructions say to cut a piece of elastic the length of the Elastic Guide. 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. Finding the perfect sleepwear combination for those humid Florida nights can take a lot of mixing and matching. Sometimes, combining pieces with different fabrics and thickness can cause an uncomfortable temperature imbalance.
