Hello Sewing Loft readers!

When Heather and I first talked about this series, we talked about a sewing circle – the social event of times past. As much of our socializing is now online, we wanted to turn my series into a kind of virtual sewing circle.

So, pull up a chair and let’s chat – today is your day to ask me any questions you have about this project. Confused about something when drafting the pattern? Picture unclear about how to sew these together? Curious which fabric I used? No clue about elastic? It’s all fair game!

In fact, because I’m super nervous about crickets on this post, I’ll open up the floor to anything sewing related. And if you don’t want to comment here, you’re also welcome to comment on The Sewing Loft Facebook Page – I’ll make sure to check in there before I do next week’s post as well.

Please give me something to write about for next week! Until then, happy sewing.

  1. Melly, is that piping I see between the cuff and the pajama leg bottom? I like the look and may just use ready to use piping in that seam.

  2. Melissa, I always end up putting in elastic waistbands because the thought of adding a drawstring intimidates me, but I prefer drawstrings, any tips?

  3. do these have pockets? how hard would it be to add them? I must have pockets in my jammie pants. LOL

  4. Great project that I’ve already bookmarked. What’s keeping me from doing it, is I don’t currently have any PJ pants that fit well.

  5. Finished PJs on The Sewing Loft Flickr page. Made with light green knit with “faux cuffs” and black/white striped flat piping. Faux cuffs explained: since pre-cuff pj length was perfect, I just added a hem facing, turned it to the right side and included the flat striped flat piping (not corded) when sewing it down at the top edge of facing/faux cuff. Onwards to the next pair of pjs; can’t stop. O, Heather & Melissa what hath you wrought……

    EEK! Don’t make me wear belly pants! Is that what I see? At my age, that isn’t an option, or for youngers who may have C-section or other scars the’d rather not put on display. I would love me some new jammies, but not a naked navel.
