Kwik Sew 3275 – Girl’s PJ Pants
Happy Day! I started and finished something!
These are Kwik Sew 3275 in size 10. I took 2″ off the rise and added 2″ to the inseam, which made them the same length as the size 12.
I used 24.5″ of 1″ non-roll elastic for the waist. The pattern calls for 21″ of 3/4″ elastic. The non-roll seems to be a little less stretchy, and Zoe wears her pants a little lower than her natural waist. 21″ of elastic would not have been comfortable.
Since it was such a wacky day, I even got out my iron and pressed my hems before coverstitching. Check it out!
I’ll subject you to one more closeup just because it looks so pretty! That iron thing really does work.
Kwik Sew patterns are some of my favorites for their consistent sizing and ease of use. This is a one piece (cut 2!) pattern, super easy. The pattern also includes a top and both the top and pants are designed for knit fabrics with at least 20% stretch across the grain.
If you are playing Stash Game, this pattern used 1.25 yards of fabric and gets two notion points – elastic and size tags, so 12 points!
But wait, there’s more! I was so excited to actually finish something, and equally pleased to have used up good a chunk of this fabric that has been curing in my stash forever, that I decided to make a second pair.
