My hilarious moppet has apparently inherited my tothood penchant for half-streaking.
Tops & accessories are mandatory attire but bottoms are most definitely optional…
what’s a frazzled mommy to do?
Create a bunch of colourfully fun & comfy lounge pants that the mini-naturist can’t wait to pull on!
Here’s the quick how-to:
Snag some fun fabric & a chopped jersey turtle neck
fold the fabric in half right sides facing & then fold lengthwise (you should now have 4 layers)
grab a pair of your kiddo’s fave loose fitting PJ pants, fold in half lengthwise & place on top of your layered fabric with the crotch at the folded edge
without cutting through that folded edge, chop out the basic shape of the pj pants leaving plenty of space for seam allowance
separate the 2 fancy new pant legs & re-fold with right-sides-facing
stitch each leg together along the long open edge
once each leg is sewn into a tube shape, pop one inside of the other with right sides together & the “Vs” lined up
stitch the “Vs” together
flip right side out & marvel at your almost-done-lounge-pants
pop that chopped turtle neck over the waist area of the pants with right sides facing & raw edges lined up
zig zag over the outside seam for extra strength
give the legs a nice clean hem
and present them to your soon-to-be-covered streaker!
Create a pair for yourself using the steps above and replace the turtle neck with either a simple elastic waist or use the easy t-shirt waistband trick seen in my DIY circle skirt video below:
