Sew your first pyjama or lounge pants

Lounge in style in your me-made pyjama bottoms or shorts. This dressmaking class is an ideal first sewing project for newbies, or a quick and satisfying make for existing stitch addicts.

Choose between full-length pyjama bottoms or flirty boyfriend shorts, with optional drawstring detail. The low-rise, elasticated waist and relaxed-fit leg make these PJs oh so comfy to wear. You’ll never want to get dressed when you’re wearing your pyjamas!

The class includes the Jaimie and Joe pattern from Tilly and the Buttons’ with award-winning beginner-friendly instructions and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

The pattern can also be used to make stylish lounge pants ideal for the summer sunshine.
