Sewing Pajama Pants

Updated on July 19, 2013

An Easy First Sewing Project

Pajama pants are an easy sewing project for beginning sewers! If you know the fundamentals of sewing, you are well on your way to being able to make a cute and cozy pair of pajama pants!

If you are a beginner, I recommend making a pair or two for yourself to get the hang of it. As with any new skill, there are likely to be a few kinks to work out until you master the technique.

My grandmother taught me how to sew when I was in junior high, using a very easy shorts pattern that is almost identical to pajama pants, just with shorter legs. If I could learn to do this when I was twelve, I have confidence in your ability to do it now!

Once you have the skill of making pajama pants, you can make them for gifts. Of course, they make a great present for anyone on your gift list!

So, let's get started making your p.j.s!

Pajama Pants Patterns

You will probably need a pattern. Yes, if you are an accomplished sewer, you may be able to make a pair of pants without a pattern. If you don't have that much sewing experience, you will want to use a pattern to save yourself a lot of heartache.

Take a look at these easy patterns and find the one that will work best for you!

Choose the Fabric! - Selecting Fabric for Your Sewing Project

If you are a beginner, your project will be much easier if you select a fabric that does not have an obvious one-way design or anything you have to match. For example, if you choose cloth that has a picture that must appear right side up, or a fabric like velour that has an obvious nap, you are adding more steps to your sewing project. Likewise, if you decide to use a plaid fabric, you will have to take extra steps to make sure the lines in the plaid line up. This can be a headache.

If this is one of your first projects, keep things simple and select a fabric that is forgiving and easy to work with! Here are some suggestions!

Look on your pattern envelope to see how much material you will need.
