For this project I used another pair of capri pajama pants that I had already sewn up (as a "pattern"), scissors, pins, matching thread and the sewing machine.
I laid another pair of pajama pants over these ones and cut them where the seam was. I want for this lounge skirt to be the same length as these capri pajama pants.
Next, I cut out the seam that went up the inside of the legs.
I folded the pants over like so and cut away the crotch (sorry, there isn't a better word!):
This was the first side (I only cut away this much):
And this was the back:
Here is the result.
Time for the sewing. I took front and sewed the two former legs together.
I did the same to the back then it was done.
I cut away a little from the back at the bottom of the seam as I had too much fabric. I didn't sew up the bottom as this was jersey and I didn't care if it rolled up. Done!
Estimated time for this project: 30 minutes. Seriously, this was a very quick one.
- This can very easily be done with cotton pajama pants. I prefer jersey.
- This skirt is SO comfortable. It's not tight or short. I'm only going to wear it around home so I don't care if it's perfect.
