My March SAL (sew-a-long) didn't happen because I was doing a charity sewing project for my church.
I'm ready for April though.
April is to sew some PJ's. I'm going to do some bottoms (I think most are on Ralvery). I choose a print I have in my stash. I was going to make a skirt with this print, but then I decided it would be cuter in PJ bottoms. I had the pattern. I'm going to do the long PJs. It's a unisex pattern.
These are both thrift store finds. I can't remember the price on the material as I bought it over a year ago. The pattern was 50 cents (love those prices)--uncut.
The pattern is very easy. Front, back, pockets. Yep it has side slit pockets. If it didn't, I was going to add them anyway. Elastic waist and simple fold over hem for the bottom. I read the pattern the other night. The bottoms are cotton (or similar) material. The top is a knit, so I won't do that now. Another SAL is a knit top and I have material and pattern ready for that.
I discovered I did not have any purple thread. I couldn't believe it. Last night I found two that looked like they would match and one will. I used a picture on my cell phone since I hadn't cut out the pattern yet. Normally I would take a piece of scrap material (had to do that once when I couldn't find the thread I bought).
If anyone else has done PJ bottoms before, put a link in the comments and let me see. I would love to. yes I've done pants before (2 including 1 muslin), but I still like inspiration.
