A few of you may remember my tutorial on making pajama pants. For the record, the girls’ pants fit great. But the boys pants… not so much.
I wasn’t even off the plane from Haiti for 2 hours when O put his on and shouted the above [really grateful] statement. And welcome home.
Both boys’ pants fit terribly– too tight in the hips. I have no idea what happened, but if you copied my tutorial and ended up with “the worst pajama pants! Ever!” instead of the girls’ well-fitting pants, I’m sorry. So sorry.
My theory is that because the boys’ measurements were opposite (the inseam and waist measurements were directly converse: 21 x 24, v 24 x 21, or something like that) I goofed when I double-checked the casement.
Anyway, now I’ve fixed them. We’ll see if the pants are actually worn, or if the experience thus far has tainted the pants past redemption. I hope this is one of those moments when Sam’s question, “Seriously, why don’t you just order some?” becomes an “I told you so.” (He wouldn’t do that, would he?)

LOL, love the “and welcome home”. I’ll take anything you sew anytime, messed up inseam or not!
Why do husbands not understand the satisfaction of doing it ourselves? Wait – they do – that’s why they never want to call the plumber, right? lol. I loved the pants idea. I read that blog and thought, “genius!” I’m planning on trying it next year!
