I honestly meant to have these pajama pants done yesterday ... but my teenage son had a snow day (again!) and kept popping down to chat. No real complaints, as the chats were pleasant and interesting. I've been given the advice by a couple mothers with older children that if your teenager wants to talk, you should listen. So I did.
I have to admit sewing for a teenager presents some interesting challenges with regards to what constitutes fit and fashion. For some strange reason I had the silly notion this didn't apply to pajama pants that will NOT be worn outside the house. Silly me. I figured for the "waist"band to be worn at his high hip, but when he tried them on ... he was wearing them lower. He specifically asked for them to be long at the hem ... and this was while I thought he'd wear the elastic closer to his waist! He says he likes the length, but they are "too baggy" through the legs for his taste. For some reason I thought very loose-fit through the crotch and legs was desirable in pajama pants ... he says these feel "Aladdin-pants loose". Here's the pic so y'all can judge for yourselves (I made him pull the elastic up to the top of his hipbones for the pic!)
