Yes. That is correct. This is Pigs In Pajamas in pig pajamas. So meta.
Although that picture makes me looked a little bloated and pasty. Oy. Phone cameras.
I’d had this fabric for well over a year. Maybe 2. I’d seen in the store and knew I need some pajama pants out of it. NEEDED.
But I didn’t know how much fabric I would need so I just grabbed 2 yards figuring that would be enough. Well, it was a little short for this pattern, but since I too am short, it worked out as you can see above. And I finally used both a pattern and fabric from my stash. Double win!
I used McCall’s 3017 which I think may be out of print. Here’s my Pattern Review review:
Pajama pants, shorts and tops.
?The one I bought had XS, S, and M. I made the Medium based on the back measurements. They’re definitely roomy.??
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it??
??Were the instructions easy to follow?
?Very easy. But the pattern is so basic you don’t even really need them.??
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
?Super easy. Super fast.??
Some super cute flannel I picked up maybe a year ago, maybe 2 years. I bought it with the intention of making pajama pants and it just took me forever to do so.??
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:?
Shortened — here’s why:?
So, I bought the fabric 1-2 years ago and when I saw it I loved it and had to have some PJs out of it. But I didn’t have any patterns on me though I knew I had at least 1 maybe 2 for pajama pants at home. I figured, eh, 2 yards should be enough. The pattern actually calls for 2.625 yards. But I was able to lay the two pattern pieces out and just fold over each evenly (so I didn’t even cut the pattern!). I ended up taking off about 4 inches. Fortunately, I’m short so this actually ended up making the pants the perfect length based on how I wear them (rolled down twice and around my low hip). I figured if they ended up too short, I could just make some cuffs out of the extra fabric.??
If I were to do it again, I would shorten it in the crotch area. It’s pretty long through there since I don’t wear them at my waist. Maybe. Like I said, I kinda like them how they are.??
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others??
Totally. It was super fast. I’ve gotten so much wear out of it already. Just need to find more perfect fabric.??
?Great pattern. Great first project.
