A recent closet cleaning coincided with Jackjack running out of pajama shorts, and a repurposing idea was born.
Grab a pair of shorts that fit well. Turn them inside out and lay them against the edge and bottom of the shirt–this will be your pattern. Since the shorts line up with the bottom of the shirt, you won’t have to hem the shorts.
There isn’t a good way to explain the next part in words…just take a look and you’ll get it. Pick up the piece you just sewed. It doesn’t look anything like a pair of shorts, does it?
Grab it in the middle…
…and give it a shake. Amazing, huh? I sure thought so.
Sew the waist closed, and presto! Pajama shorts.
