Pyjama Bottoms Pattern


Turn a worn out pair of pyjamas into a pattern for a new pair.  I’ve turned a favourite pair of pyjamas which are no longer fit to wear into a new pair of pyjamas.

Pyjama Pattern

You will need:

  • A pair of old pyjamas which do not have seems on the outside of the legs (each leg will only be made of one piece of fabric)
  • A pair of dressmaking scissors (or a pair of strong, sharp scissors)
  • Large sheets of tissue paper
  • Pencil

What to do:

  1. Carefully cut off the waistband and remove the elastic or cord and save.
  2. Cut along the seems, you should now have two pieces of fabric, discard one.
  3. Lay a sheet of tissue paper out flat and then place the leg of the pyjamas over the top.
  4. Trace around the pyjamas.
  5. Add 10cm to the top of the pyjamas for the waist band.
  6. Add a 1.5cm seem allowance around the rest of the pyjamas.

Next week I’ll show you how I’ve used this pattern to turn an old pair of curtains into some new pyjamas.
