And grab a pattern that you don’t really love – we’re going to tweak it. Cut the waist/rear/etc to fit, and you for sure want it fitted around the thighs (I ended up taking mine in around that area a bunch) but when cuttting the bottom of the legs, from about the knee down, don’t taper in! I cut straight down for a bit of a wide leg – if you want to replicate the inpiration photo above, you’ll need to flare out a little more.
Since I was wearing them to a pajama party at the blogging conference, I made mine in the color scheme of my blog. Which is turquoise, yellow, and a hint of gray. I wanted gray piping inbetween the cuff and pant, but didn’t have any on hand. But I DID have white, and some dye, so I made that work:
Next up make your cuff – – I made mine bigger than the inspiration picture so as to accent my blog colors that much more. I made this the same way I did on the Banded Leggings I made a while ago, and I do a little bit better job explaining it then. But here we go –
Folded in half, it’s the same width as the bottom of my pant leg, and double as tall as you want it. Sew it up the sideseam, with right sides together:
Then cuff it, so you see the right side of the fabric on the inside and the outside of the cuff:
Turn the pj pants so the right-side is out. Slide the cuff on the leg upside-down, so the raw edges are lined up. Sew along the raw edge (insert piping if you want to go all out). That’s it!
