I want to use Jalie 2215 (discontinued), which is a fitted boot cut yoga pant, to make pj bottoms. My thought was to drop the crotch point by 1.5 cm and extend by 1.5cm, and to straighten the in- and outseams. I would also cut it down a bit at the waist. I plan to make these in jersey with similar stretch to pattern recommendation.
Should this work? Am I missing anything?

This sound like a good plan. I am not familiar with the pattern but in pajama bottoms (pants) you always want more ease so that they'll be comfortable to sleep in. When I make pajama bottoms I use just a pull on pant style pattern and usually just go up a size to get the extra ease and then bring in the waist and of course shorten the leg length.
Are you making them from a stretch fabric? I usually use either a light weight flannel (for winter) and a cotton (for summer) I've never found a knit that I like for pajama bottoms, although a cotton knit may work nicely? I should try that some time.

Thanks for your thoughts, Kemish. Up a size is probably a really good idea. I was thinking about adding ease in the backside via a wedge in the seat, but your suggestion would probably be more fool-proof.
I've got a nice cotton/lycra knit and will see how it goes!
