Burda 03/2014 #112: owl jamjams

me-made-March day 15!

This was probably the funnest project to date, I used the following pattern for workout bottoms and just cut a much smaller length. Ta-daaaah – jammie bottoms. In owl print, nonetheless, talk about bringing a little sunshine to an otherwise dreary day.  I didn’t bother with the drawstring or back pockets, but I added bias binding to the side seam and leg hem, and 3 cute little buttons. so cute, so comfy…

Think shorts/pants are hard to make? It’s a lot easier than you think. Sew a front leg pant piece to a back leg pant piece, repeat with other set of leg pant pieces (left pic, below). Lay both sets of pants legs pieces flat on top of each other, and sew up the crotch seam from front to back (right pic).

Now, when you open up the pieces and pair up the leg seams, you’ve got shorts!

If you’re going to add bias seam binding, sew it on the full length of the back leg side and only part-way up the front (left pic, below). Lay the back leg on top of the front, and sew on top of the bias binding to join back to front – make sure they overlap up until the bottom of the leg opening (right pic).

From there, follow the remaining instructions that come with the pattern.
