DIY: Summer Pajama Pants

I've been wanting to make some summer pajama pants for a while (and by "summer", I mean cropped about 3/4ths length).

I finally got around to doing it! I used the pattern in Amy Butler's In Stitches. The first time I tried it, I trimmed too much off the sides (I didn't want them to be so billowy), and they ended up not pulling over my hips. I had to give them to Krista, a visitor from Canada who was passing through on a road trip adventure.

The second time I tried it, I followed the pattern exactly. This time, the waist is too high. I kind of look like I'm wearing granny panties (hence the photograph with the pants on a doorknob rather than my body). I'm pretty sure it would be an easy fix; I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. You know how that goes...

I love mine! :) They fit perfectly and definitely beat wearing my long pajama pants here in hot hot Arizona!
