So, awhile ago now a friend asked me for a pattern for pajamas. Of course I was thinking of all of the cute little nightie ideas I could come up with. Then, last week, my Little Dude ran up to me with alarm on his face. Something really terrible had happened...
His big toe was sticking out of his footie jammies! I tried telling him that his toe was just coming out to say hello but he wasn't buying it. That night the feet were cut off of his favorite robot jammies. Then, the next night, the same thing happened. With the same toe even! I'm not sure if he just has one foot bigger than the other, or one leg longer, or if there is something going on in the jammie factory where they are making one leg shorter than the other, but I had to accept the kid needed new jammies.
So, I set out to draft up a "One size fits many" pair of PJ pants, so I could share it with all of you.
Sure, at first glance, there isn't anything special about them. I can promise you that they will fit a range of sizes (I'll talk about that later), I'll even show you how to make the snazy cuffs on the ankles! What? You want more?
What about if the back looked like this? Get out your appliques, this bum wants something cute on it!
I'm totally picturing cute little ruffles for a girl (I'm sorry I can't help it)!
I've been wanting to make a PJ pant with no back seam since my girls were babies, so I thought it was about time I finally did it. Perfect for that little diaper butt in your life, but cute on a feisty toddler or young child too!
See this applique post if you have never done one before. Get those ideas ready, pattern for these pants coming very soon (of course free)!
