Almost all my pajama pants are long flannel, making them wayyyy too warm under the pile of blankets I like to sleep under. And silk pajamas are my favorite (no surprise there!). Since I have been going through my closet and getting rid of piles of clothes, I decided to sacrifice a silk dress to make a new pair of capri length pants- in the time it took to drink my coffee this am.
The dress was lined and had ties. I left the lining in place- hey, might as well have extra fancy pj's! The ties I sewed together to make the waistband ties since I was too lazy to see if I had elastic hidden in my craft bins- a super awesome decision since the ties are super long and even knotted reach almost to my knees. The pj's turned out well- if I had wanted to spend more time I would have cute the fabric down to make it less wide- while the super wide fabric is fine once it hits the knees, it could be more flattering at the waist if I had gone to the trouble of removing an extra inch or two.
Fancy! Complete with lining. And fancy stitching at the waist. Now I don't want to get dressed for the day! Maybe I won't :)
