I’m pretty sure if you searched the internet for how to make PJ pants, this idea would be all over the place. So I don’t claim to have invented this idea. But I still love it, nonetheless. I love using old T’s for things because it’s using what we already have or is already made. It’s a great way to recycle. So when the girls needed new pj pants, I made these.
Get a T.
Fold it on it’s side.
Trace a pattern on each side of the T with another pair of pj pants.
After cutting two out, sew each leg up the middle then pin the two together and sew them together at the crotch/bum seam (I’m sure that’s a technical term )
Make a waistband the width of the top of the pants. Fold it over.
After attaching, pull the elastic through and close.
You can make quite a few in no time! One thing I’ll do is if the fabric is a little plain I’ll sew a little fun patch of fabric on
(See the fuchsia ones in the middle? If you’re lucky and your child is small enough you can use the arms of a T for the pant legs. It make a natural leg shape. Love it!)
