I purchased just two fat quarters of the Tiger Stripes from Cotton & Steel’s Hatbox at Modern Domestic, not knowing at that time what I wanted to do with it. My daughter has about a million dresses that I’ve made for her, and we have too many blankets, quilts, pillows, etc, around the house, but I thought she could use a pair of PJ pants to lounge around the house in.
I already had Simplicity #2290, but not near enough fabric to make a pair of pants for a nine-year-old, so I turned to my fabric stash and managed to put something together. I sewed the eight-year-old size, because I knew that this pattern ran really large. My patched-together fabric pieces were barely wide enough, but I squeaked by.
I think the scrappy look makes cute pants, and best of all, she thinks that they’re super comfortable and already wears them just about any time she’s hanging out at home 🙂Pin It
