Follow along as I sew a pair of flannel pajama pants. Instead of ads in my videos I offer a tip link for those who wish to support me: www.paypal.me/kevinsews
I captured the full 2 hours with all the details. If you have ADD or you are looking for a quick/fast overview then this video is not for you. Otherwise, you may want to watch it a 1.5 or 2.0 speed initially due to the length of the video. See timestamps below. This video is for the beginner sewer who like to see all of the details.
These pants include pockets, an elastic waistband and a pull string. It also includes a separate waistband, which is important if you have more than an inch of drop between the front and back. I personally have a 3 inch drop between my front and back. I’ve successfully sewed these pants using a custom pattern for people who’ve had a 19 inch back crotch length and a 13 inch front.
Here is a link to the pocket template: http:///www.kevinsews.com/download/FlannelPJPantsPocket.pdf
To see how I join the elastic refer to this video: https://youtu.be/yt-WjwJuYws
ONE UPDATE on the Waistband Width: I updated my pattern to a width of 3.25 inches after I created this video. I found there was a bit less fabric beyond the stitching in the ditch seam line on the inside of the pants. Just make sure you are very accurate in your 1/4″ fold over and your placement of the fold like before sewing. The 1/4″ fold should land right in the middle of the 1/4″ fold area.
