Woke up this morning and decided that enough was enough. I bought hubby a couple of pj's when I was on holiday three years ago. They were Calvin Klein and cost me an arm and a leg. Hubby loved the quality of the fabric and were a perfect fit but unfortunately they ripped at the knees and I patched them up so many times that it gives a new meaning to patchwork.
I'm always making stuff to sell or give as gifts to friends so felt sorry for him. He bought two pieces of fabric to make pj's for him but just didn't have the time and truth be told I had to make the pattern myself like the ones he already had which I hate doing, so I cheated. Off I went to the tailors with hubbies patchwork pj's and asked if he could draw up the pattern just like them. It took him minutes and now that they're sewn I measured them to see if they were the same size and they're not a millimeter out.
One and a half hours later and here they are. That should keep him going until I get the chance to make another pair for him.
Notice the front is shorter than the back. That's why I didn't want to do the pattern myself. I thought I'd make a mess of it and then have to use the fabric for something else.
