I used the tour as an excuse to whip myself up some summer pyjama pants! This pair made with thrift-shop batik are pocket-free (because I find the extra fabric to be uncomfortable in bed). This made for an incredibly quick sew!
This winter pair for my mum includes the pockets with a silk lining from an old dressing gown which got threadbare in sections. The inside of the pants are quite fleecy and cosy to wear!
I was trying to be incredibly organised when I cut these out for my mum, who has a slightly smaller hip size than me. Since then, Leila has updated the sizing and I could have cut out a size closer to her actual measurements- oh well!
I didn’t pay any attention at all to pattern matching on either pants, but it’s especially amusing with my batik fabric where I have a bunch flower right in the middle of my left cheek!
Happy Christmas Day to everyone, best wishes for your last minute sewing, other projects and the holidays in general!
