tutorial from MADE with almost no modifications. The only thing I changed was the length (I just copied some sleeping shorts I already had) and I skipped the elastic around the waist and just used the drawstring. I must not have added enough allowance on the top because my casing ended up being fairly narrow and I was having a really tough time getting the elastic through. When I had it about halfway through I realized that there was no way the drawstring would fit with the elastic in, and since the shorts weren't too loose I didn't really need elastic to hold them up, so I went with drawstring only.
I really love this pattern and plan on making a few more sleeping shorts (or pants) for myself with my fabric stash. It will also be very useful come the holidays as I'm always stumped about what to sew for guys. But what guy doesn't love a good pair of pajama pants...perhaps in a nice pink floral?
