After seeing these I went out and bought the pattern. I have not sewn for some time and want easy things. Did anyone have problems with the bottom of the pants being uneven, mine needed about 1 in taken off the bottom where the outside seam would be - or is it just my build [grande] or [fat]!

The pants look great. Wow 15 pairs now that's a lot of sewing for a beginner. Good Job! Sewing will be a fun hobby for you. I think sewing is so much fun and a creative hobby.

How fun! You are very ambitious. Were you able to get inseam lengths from all of your recipients or did you just wing it?

Now that is a lot of sewing! I have this pattern, & I have yet to make it. I like the idea of making flannel pants from it. Glad you didn't hurt your finger too badly.

Great project--I need to do something like this to improve my skills. Sewing can be dangerous...Ouch! I broke a needle recently (not on my finger!) and it flew in all directions, including my face. Made me wonder if I should wear safety goggles! Now when sewing in a rough spot, I move my head back from the machine!

These look like so much fun! I have too many PJ bottoms because I can't resist the cute flannels. Great job! You mentioned wanting to make some out of flannel backed satin. WARNING - there was absolutely NO stretch to the fabric, unlike in flannel. I made a pair - I still need to adjust. You need to be sure to have plenty of room to make up for not stretch. Cut the side seams extra wide (I'd add at least one inch to each side seam. Then check the fit and adjust as needed. Hopefully this will help prevent you having the problem I did - now I'm putting a gusset into the side seams to give more room. Good luck with your cointuned sewing!

That is a very impressive accomplishment-- 15 pairs of pants in so little time! And they're so cute and colorful! Your friends will likely all be placing additional orders after they open their gifts.

Impressive, Chandra! It really is a confidence-booster to find a nice, basic pattern, and give yourself a total workout on it. Congratulations to you, kid.
