Unexpected PJ pants surprise

Hello everyone!

I hope your weekend went well.  Mine was a blast!

Last Thursday I got a call from my best friend.  She invited me to a woman's get-together with a "pajama" theme. The only problem was, I did not have any pajamas to wear!!  So, I did some last minute shopping, and picked up Mccall's 5248 at Hobby Lobby for $1.99

I knew I would have family in town for the weekend, and sewing time would be tight, so I decided to only sew a pair of pants instead of the whole ensemble.  I knew it would be easier to throw a shirt over pants than to try to squeak out a pants and top.

On Sunday I proceeded to finish the pants in about 2 1/2 hours.  I sewed a size Medium, with plenty of room to spare.  I almost chose a small, but knew by the finished measurements that I would not have enough leg or hip width.

Overall, this pattern was very easy to sew, and came together without a hitch.  I love the drawstring waist, and the comfy, comfy feel.  I wore my pants to the PJ party, then came home, showered, and wore them to bed.  I want to live in these things they are so comfy and cute!!!!!!!!

And the ladies' event was AMAZING!! 

I will be attending another event in June with a "white party" theme---you come dressed in white.  I am thinking a white dress would be perfect to sew.  I won't be starting it soon, but somewhere in the middle of May.  So stay tuned...Also, if you have any suggestions for a great white dress pattern, let me know.  I want something classy, chic, and stylish.

Here's to hoping for a week of muslins...

Stay sew-filled!


  1. An all-white party sounds classy. You should make one of Ralph Rucci designs that Vogue carries like V1239 or my fave V1317 -- would look smashing in white!

  2. Oh these are cute. I missed this pattern! Sure sounds like a good time!

  3. Vanessa, I swear we are on the same wave length. I have this pattern. I made the pants in satin, but they need to be hemmed. I didn't use the drawstring. The top is also partially finished. I probably have less than an hour to finish both. I was finishing Christmas projects and this was left in the corner!

  4. Good luck to you and your endeavours.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.


Let me know what you think!
