Kwik Sew 2257 – Men’s Pajama Pants

I mentioned last month that I was making two of my Christmas gifts this year.  The first was a knitted “crown” hat for my niece.  The second was a pair of pajama pants for my husband.  He asked for a robe for Christmas this year, so I decided he needed a pair of matching pajama pants. I somehow managed to get these made without him knowing I was sewing something for him.  I even worked on them while he was home one day!

Pajama Pants

To make the pants I used Kwik Sew 2257.  What a great pattern!  Easy to sew with very professional results.  This is the third time I’ve used this pattern.  I first made these pants back in 2002 when I had been sewing for only a few months and they were a big hit.

Pajama pants make a great gift because they don’t require a lot of fitting.  All you need to know is pants size, and you will get a good fit (at least with this pattern!).  I purposefully left these pants unfinished so I could refine the fit after Christmas.  When I made these before they were a little long, so I wanted to get the length just right this time.

For the final touch, I added one of my personalized labels:
