DIY ILLUSTRATION ON HOW TO SEW PAJAMAS SHORT

My favorite outfit to wear especially during this lock down period is short.

The PJ short has been one of my pending projects, due to my busy work schedule, I kept postponing it. The stay at home order due to the corona virus has afford me the time to make more. I also made for my daughter.

Pinterest is a good site to get sewing pattern illustration, all you need to do is adjust these patterns to your size.

I added lace trims to two of my shorts. I couldn’t go out to buy elastic band for my daughter’s short, so I improvised by using the elastic lace trims on both of her short. So far, from the look of the short, that was a good sew.

A stretchy fabric will be preferable for the short as you will be laid-back at home and you definitely do not want anything to restrict the way you spread your legs at home. I like to spread myself all over the bed when I sleep, so I need to wear something really free and airy. It’s more comfortable to use a stretchy fabric. I used non-stretchy fabrics for two of my shorts. For the African print, I made a size 14 and i’m a size 10 and also the short is not joined together at the side. it’s like a freedom short, you can literary do anything wearing the African print short. while the polka dot short is restricted, I can’t really dance or spread my legs freely. It’s body fitted but beautiful. I could go out with it.

You’ll need:

  • your fabric
  • sewing machine
  • pattern paper
  • ruler
  • elastic
  • pins
  • sewing thread
  • measuring tape
  • scissors

Below are the illustration to making two of these shorts. so let’s get started.
