The pajama pants are meant to be loose but not too big. You will have the option of making shorts, capris or pants. Use the size guide below to measure hips and waist for your pajama bottoms. 

Purchase fabric as follows: 

  • Shorts (3 1/2″ inseam) – 1 yard of fabric
  • Capris (22 1/2″ inseam) – 2 1/4 yards of fabric
  • Pants (31 1/2″ inseam) – 2 3/4 yards of fabric

We will be using elastic for the waist band. Use a tape measure to measure about 2″ below your natural waist. You will need a piece of elastic that is this length plus 1″. Elastic should be 3/4″ wide.
