My First Pair of Pajama Pants!

Well, this is getting to be a habit. I mean the not posting and all. I haven't been sewing much lately because we have been deeply engrossed in our BEST (Boosting Science, Engineering, and Technology) team. We have the regional competition in 4 days, 13 hours, and 52 minutes, but whose counting? :) Here is our website: There are some pictures on there of our robot.

Anyways, I FINALLY made some pajama pants from Amy Butler's book In Stitches. They turned out really well. I originally intended to use this fabric (purchased at Wally World for $2 a yard) for a tiered skirt, but I was still unsure how it would look as a skirt and since I only had 3 yards anyways, I just made some pajama pants. They look a lot better in real life. They are really comfortable! And yes, I'm wearing a blouse with my pajama pants! I traced the pattern out on newspaper with a marker, and that worked out really well. The newspaper has a nice weight to it, so that I didn't even have to pin it down. I would definitely not use newspaper on a fabric that is real light, but I definitely plan to use it again. I can't wait to make some more, and Mom wants some too.
