The Pyjama Bottoms are the perfect first sewing pattern for anyone taking their first steps into the world of dressmaking. The Pyjama Bottoms are full-length and have a relaxed fit with an elasticated waistband, side seam pockets and a tie front created with an optional buttonhole or mock tie. This pattern makes a gorgeous pair of trousers too -from a relaxed day to a smart evening trouser simply by the fabric choice.
