Simple 30 min. Sleep Shorts – Women’s and Girl’s

Published March 18, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will need:

  • Fabric ( For a size 16 women’s you will need 1 yard)
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Elastic (long enough to fit comfortably around your waist)

What to do:

  • Using a pair of sleep shorts that fit well make a template of 1 back leg panel
  • With your fabric folded in 1/2 wrong sides together  cut 4 pieces making sure to leave a seam allowance.
  • Take 2 pieces and, with good sides facing in, hem side B then repeat with the remaining 2 pieces
  • Next create your bottom of the leg seam by hemming line C on each of your pieces
  • Hem sides D on each piece
  • Hem the curve (which will become the middle front and back seam) Placing both pieces together matching lines D and the curve with right sides together and repeat with the other curve.
  • Now go back over the Seams for line D which now will be more of a V or U shape
  • All that is left to do is create your waist band.  Fold over 1/2 inch of fabric and hem line A being sure to leave a 2 inch or so gap in your stitches to feed your elastic through.  Attach a safety pin to one end of the elastic and work it through the pocket you just made until you get to the opening then stitch the 2 ends of the elastic together and close up your opening.

Much easier than the patterns and equations I found when I was searching, though I will admit I had 2 failures before I got it right!  On  the bright side I have worked out the kinks for you!   🙂

** You can use my measurements and simply adjust your elastic size and you should have no real problems for sizes L or XL….

** I used a triple zigzag stitch for the entire construction.  I think it looks nice on the seams you can see and allows for a great deal of durability as well as fray prevention when you go just over the edges.
