The Pyjama Bottoms are the perfect first sewing pattern for anyone taking their first steps into the world of dressmaking. The Pyjama Bottoms are full-length and have a relaxed fit with an elasticated waistband, side seam pockets and a tie front created with an optional buttonhole or mock tie. This pattern makes a gorgeous pair of trousers too -from a relaxed day to a smart evening trouser simply by the fabric choice.

The Pyjama Bottoms have been created with you, the beginner seamstress, in mind. Our clear and straightforward instructions are there to guide you through each step as if an expert seamstress is right there by your side.

From choosing the right fabric to taking accurate measurements and cutting out the pattern, to fabric lay plans, cutting tips and decoding pattern symbols and jargon, we‘ll take you through everything you need to know to make your own pyjama bottoms or trousers.


Suggested Fabrics

Light to medium weight woven fabrics: cotton lawn, flannel, brushed cotton, cotton fleece or fabric that is soft & breathable with natural fibres. If making trousers this pattern works well with lightweight wovens such a linen & cotton or a silky fabric for an evening pair.
