I don't know - 80's ease will be back in style at some point! Those look very nice, and certainly work as a comfy around-the-house option.

I have kept this pattern too. It's true about the "80's ease". My measurements haven't changed much, but I can make this pattern two sizes smaller now LOL. I never hoard old patterns EXCEPT my Stretch and Sews, because they are so reliable and the instructions are great.

Might as well hang on to the pattern. You may need some more PJs in 5 or 10 years.

Stretch and Sew patterns are worth keeping for the techniques alone. Nice job on your shorts -- I still have that pattern too.

I agree - I use many older patterns and love them. And with a few changes they can be made up to date. I love the color of this fabric. Good job.
