I just made the same pair, however, in a size medium. I really love them! If you get the energy, maybe you might want to try a smaller size. From your pic, you look like the same size as I am. I do love your choice of fabrics!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! I am auditioning another pajama pant pattern this weekend and if that's a winner, I'm planning to repurpose the fabric. :)

Way cute use of the fabric!

These are totally addorable in spite of being a little wide. Love your custom touches on waist casing and bottom of pants. Next time just fold some of the fullness out of the front and back pattern pieces before cutting the fabric.

I absolutely love your fabric. Sorry the pattern didn't work. Especially with all the extra work of French seams. I wonder if you could recut them. Jalie's pattern for lounge pants is much trimmer and you might be able to salvage them into a garment you'd actually enjoy wearing.

They look good to me. I hope you either get to like them or find a way to alter them.

They look very pretty to me. Maybe you'd like them in a more flowy fabric.

That's too bad that you don't like them~ I can see that they're too wide, but they sure are cute anyway! I agree, maybe you could find a way to cut them down and make them wearable. It'd be a shame to give up on such a cute fabric combo. Thanks so much for the review!

These pants are so large that you should be able to recut them using a better pattern. If you have a TNT for lounge pants, take them apart and recut using that. This way you won't lose your gorgeous fabric to a wadder.
