Success!!!

I did it! I sewed a pair of pajama pants! (I also replaced the elastic in a pair that needed a looser elastic, but was otherwise okay.)

The butterfly pair is the pair I made from scratch, from a pattern I devised using my favourite, disintegrating pair. I could have made these a bit longer, and perhaps a bit longer in the seat... but on the whole, they are definitely a success. :) Plus, I *finally* used the fabric I had bought for them. (Now to make a matching top, assuming I have sufficient fabric, and then sew two more pairs with the other fabric I bought.)

From a brief try-on, they are. I'll know better by tomorrow morning. ;)

Nicole: Is that possible? Don't new ones just keep piling up? ;)

it's a dream of mine to make a pair of slacks, pants, or jammies.. i haven't a sewing bone in me that I'm aware of and it would be lovely to explore. congratulations on your pair they're quite adorable :)

I have no skill at sewing either, but somehow manage to make usable items occasionally. ;) Start with jammies... they don't have to stand up to public scrutiny the way slacks do. ;)
