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!
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:
