My sewing machine has been working overtime the past couple of weeks. Now that the weather is cooler it is a little more pleasant to be in my upstairs sewing room since it gets a little toasty up there in the summer heat. Hubby’s birthday was last week and I wanted to make him something simple and useful. My man loves his plaid jammie shorts that he has had since we got married 4 years ago. He wears them many nights a week to bed and as you can see, they have about had it.
The bum area has gotten thinner and thinner, and he has finally wore a hole through them. He needed a new pair so I found some soft plaid flannel shirting at Joann, pulled out my trusty pajama pants pattern (Simplicity 2481) and converted it to a shorts pattern. I used the old shorts as a guide for length.
I cut, sewed, and Voila! Man shorts! Start to finish it was about an hour project. Hubby was happy and I was quite pleased with how they turned out.
Have you made anything for your man lately?
