Heather Ross Pajama Pants

I figured it was time for me to try my hand at a garment, and pajama pants seemed like a good place to start (like home ec, right?). I used the pajama pants pattern from Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing.
The fabric: Heather Ross's Kelp Forest in Blush.

The pattern was simple, and I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. They fit! One note: If you make this pattern, the fabric requirements are off. It calls for 2 1/4 yards of fabric for medium/large. The errata calls for 2 1/2. I ended up using 2 1/2 for the large in pants that are short enough for me. If you're any taller than, say, 5'2'', you might need more fabric than that.

I'm so glad to see this fabric in context. I just found it the other day and was thinkiing of using it to cover a toddler size bed box frame! So cute for pajamas, not for upholstery!

I've only done one pair of pants really and the crotch was the hardest for me to get right without bunching...I want to try another pair to see if I can fix that issue.

Anyways yours look great!!!
