Tutorial Tuesday :: Girl's Knit Pajama Shorts with FREE Sewing Pattern from iCandy Handmade

For this weeks Tutorial Tuesday, we have this simple and absolutely adorable Girl's Knit Pajama Shorts Tutorial that includes a FREE Sewing Pattern from Jen of iCandy Handmade. The pattern is based on a 21" waist, but it would be very easy to adjust if you wanted to resize it. These shorts are so fast and easy to sew that you're never going to buy pajama shorts again!

To make these pajama shorts all you need is a small about of knit fabric and foldover elastic for the waistband. Foldover elastic is very easy to use, but if you've never tried it before, Jen links to this helpful video tutorial on sewing with it. For an optional finishing touch, Jen added a cute elastic trim onto some of her shorts. What a fun addition!

Most knit fabrics with stretch, like Cotton Jersey or Cotton Lycra, would make for great pajamas. These shorts require only half yard of fabric, so you can start your search under Girl Charlee Half Yard Cuts. A few of my picks from the store:
We hope you enjoy this tutorial! We love to see what you sew up so please send 1-2 images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to gcblog@girlcharlee.com and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!

Happy sewing!
