The Pyjama Game – Part 2
After my first pair of Kwik Sew 3553 pyjama bottoms were very roomy in the rear, I did a little bit of online research on flat seat/bottom adjustments. Closet Case Files’ 14 Common Jean & Pants Fitting Adjustments was the visual and quick written reference that I needed. I followed Heather Lou’s advice and removed width from the top of the inseam of the back leg.
I’ve over-layed the pattern pieces between version one (underneath) and two (on top). Please ignore the differences in the rises, version two is true to the pattern. As the pyjama bottom legs were very wide I also took some width out of the front and back inseam.
Not perfect, but greatly improved.
See those drag lines curving around my rear? That’s why version three was created.
