The sewing up of a pair of pajama pants went much as my knitting does. I'll need to invest in a seam ripper if this sewing hobby decides to stick around. After getting the machine oiled, properly threaded, the bobbin wound, and cutting out two pattern pieces, (front and back), I sat down and started the process of seaming.
Sewing felt good, the seams went together quickly, but when I held up my finished project, it was impossible to make heads or tails of it. It was impossible to make legs or waist from it....seriously, what did I do? Slowly, carefully, I unpicked the seams, then laid the pieces on the floor to better see the problem. One by one (as the light bulb went on) I picked them up, and began anew, to sew a very easy pair of pants together. Apparently, my MO is to make everything harder than it is.
It didn't take long to hem the legs and thread twill tape for a drawstring, and while they're not what you'd call chic, they're not too shabby, either. Mission accomplished, a fancy, dancy pair of RED PJ pants for lounging around the house. Where's my martini!?
