Back in 2015 I published my first sewing pattern with sizes, the Evening Primrose Pajama Pants for women. Over and over, people told me what I already knew to be true: it’s the best pajama pant pattern out there because of the comfort and versatility of the pants, but also because of how easy they are to make, even for beginners.
Now, after 8 years, I’m so happy to announce that I’ve finally published the children’s version! Let me introduce you to the Evening Primrose PJ Pants for Kids!
Why is this the best pajama pant pattern?
From about ages 2 to 12, this pattern has boys and girls of all shapes and sizes covered! Measure around the widest part of the child’s hips and choose the size from the size chart. If the hip measurement is wider than size 12, I suggest using the Evening Primrose Pajama Pants for women instead. (It’s fine for males, too, don’t worry!)
3 lengths for all season wear
Currently, this hot summer, I’m only wearing the shorts version of my Evening Primrose PJs. In a month or so, when it starts getting cooler at night, I’ll transition to the ¾ length for just a little extra coverage. Then in the full-blown fall, I start wearing my full-length PJs.
I generally sew my Evening Primroses from thrifted bedsheets (I just love vintage prints!), but when the coldest months arrive, I wear full-length ones sewn from flannel (yardage or sheets) or even fleece. They’re so snuggly and warm!
The Evening Primrose PJ pants for kids features a comfortable high waist (as opposed to the low waist of the women’s version), but both have two possible waistband options: elastic or drawstring. I personally prefer elastic, but I know plenty of people love drawstring! Which do you prefer?
With or without pockets
Pockets are another of those really personal things. Some people hate the extra bulk of pockets (like my sister!), whereas other people (like myself) hate NOT having pockets to stick a hanky or whatever else in, or just to put your hands in for comfort.
So easy to sew!
These PJ pants are an easy and fast sewing project, perfect for beginners! You don’t need to know any complicated techniques, just the basics. If you don’t feel confident with the basics, sign up for my 2-week “Zero to Hero” sewing challenge, which will teach you everything you need to sew a pair of pajama pants at the end!
The sewing pattern includes full instructions with clear illustrations for each step, but you can also watch the following video of mine to see how to sew a simple pair of Evening Primrose Pajama Pants (with elastic waistband and without pockets).
Matching family pajamas
I have seen so many adorable family photos for the holidays with the whole family wearing the same outfits, oftentimes pajamas. But even if you don’t want to pose for the camera, it’s so much fun to have matching PJs with your children! And I have you covered, because I made a special pattern bundle with both versions of the Evening Primrose Pajama Pants pattern, for children and women, 17 sizes at a special discounted price! What a bargain!
(By the way, even though the adult’s version is called “for women”, it’s also perfectly valid for males, too. My son is going through a growth spurt and grew out of the children’s sizes, so I sewed him some PJ pants from the women’s version. He loves them! I’m going to make some for my husband, too, with the same pattern.)
Soooo, what are you waiting for? Grab up your copy of the best pajama pant pattern in the world! I promise that you won’t regret it! 😊
