In our Pyjama Pants Workshop, you will make a comfy pair of unisex PJs over 5 hours. 

With two pattern pieces, this is an ideal workshop if you've just taken our Sewing Basics for Beginners Course and want to make you first pair of pants. 

This pattern features: French seams, an elastic waist band and they have a generous fit and wide legs - for serious sleeping comfort. While making these you will learn to use overlockers to finish fabric edges and how to create an elastic waist band.

Options: If you are a confident experienced sewing enthusiast and want a challenge, you could make your PJs from a fabric that is harder to work with, like satin or brocade.

I thoroughly enjoyed the PJ making workshop and love my new pyjama pants! The pants pattern is quite big compared to commercial pyjama pants, so are very comfy but if you are doing this course consider going a size down than what the paper says. The workshop went a little overtime because there weren't enough patterns to go around because everyone wanted the same size, but the teacher stayed and helped everyone finish. Beginner level class which is perfect for those who are just getting started. Thanks team!

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.  We are going to add an hour making the PJ pants now 5 hours long. We'll have a look at adjusting the measurements so there is a little less ease in these patterns too.  Happy sleeping in your PJs!
