Thought I have seen a pattern quite some time ago for some pajama bottoms or pants with a simple elasticized waist where the front and back piece were as one. Thus, making for only seaming at the inner legs and crotch. Could it have been a Kwik Sew pattern? it would surely make for a quick cut and sew Christmas project!

Talk about timing! I am about to cut out Simplicity 9871, maybe this is what you are looking.

Wow, I thought I was a master of the 1 piece pj pattern (Simp 9871 for adults, I've got a couple others for kids), but that tutorial is super. I'm going to use that method the next time I teach pj pants, for the right fit for students without having to buy a pattern. Love how this makes intro to sewing accessible. Also, I always sew the leg seam before the crotch seam, but I'm going to try it in reverse as in the tute.

Thanks!

It's very uncomfortable to wear pants that have the same crotch length front and back. I would rather wear halem pants to sleep. In fact, I have a plan to make some.

You can convert an existing pattern:

>Lay out a BIG piece of tracing or kraft paper.
>Put PJ front and back next to each other, outside seam in the middle, atop the paper.
>Align the outside seam edges as much as possible, with the grainlines even.
>Trace around and there you are.

That way the back and front aren't the same, as they seem to be in the tutorial (fine for a toddler boy, but.....ahem).I read about this somewhere at PR--if I come across it I'll link to (with thanks 'cause it's served me well).

ETA: I think it was diane s here. That thread also mentions other patterns, though maybe out of print (the Vogue site says "Huh?" if you try to go to the Marcy Tilton one, for instance).

We use Simplicity 2290 in the classroom at Joann's. It's one pattern piece.
