DIY PJ shorts

Something I like to do for birthdays is make pajama shorts. I use their own shorts to make a pattern and trace that on the fabric. But before I start, I taking their measurements, waist and height of shorts. Usually I use a knit fabric which is their favorite colors. It’s the best way to get them something heartfelt and fun (at least sewing is fun  for me). Buying fabric is much cheaper than buying something. Here are some pictures of shorts I’ve made and an abridged version of instructions.



1. After making the pattern an cutting it out on the fabric, Cut a waist band. It should be 3 inches wide and long enough to go around the waist.

2. Then make a basic elastic waistband and sew it to the shorts.




3. Lastly, just hem the leg holes. I double hemmed it to make it more clean.



THERE YOU GO! Shorts are really simple to make and only take 10 minutes.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
