I thought my days of sewing clothes for Oscar were well and truly over. He is quite picky with what he wears and I really didn’t think that he would want a pair of PJ pants because he has only been happy to wear shorts to bed since he was about 5 years old.
You can only imagine me surprise when he actually ASKED me to make him a pair of warm PJ pants just after I released the Catnap Pyjamas pattern. The nights had just started to cool down and I guess he was feeling it. I had this plaid flannel in my stash that was big enough to accommodate a pair of pants and thought it would make a good pair of pants for a 10 year old.
Because Oscar is quite tall, I sewed a size 10 and added an extra 1 1/2″ to the length of the pants – you can see in the first photo that they are actually nice and long on him, and a bit of growing room is just what I wanted because I have a feeling that he is going too keep growing at a fast rate! I didn’t have enough fabric to match any of the plaid lines, but they are just PJs so I wasn’t too fussed.
I made these pants about a month ago and am happy to say that they have been worn a lot! Yay! Maybe I will be able to sew PJ pants for him for the rest of his life 😉
