One of my Families Traditions was on Christmas eve we'd open one present, a pair of Pajamas. Something nice, warm, and Christmasy. I've been continuing this tradition with my daughters.

Christmas Morning 2008. With Uncle Brad and Puppy Bella
Annalilia and Sophia Christmas Eve 2009.
This year I got brave and decided to sew them myself. This was my first time making pants, It was far easier than I had ever expected.
|I took a pair of Pants that fit Annalilia Really well, They're a bit too short, but The legs and waist are perfect|
|With the front of the pants on a fold I cut 2 pieces, folded right sides together and stitched up the leg, stopping at the crotch.|
|Turn 1 leg right side out, and stuff it inside the other leg,|
|Sew along the inseam|
Unfold the legs from each other, Double fold a casing for the elastic band to slide into. Remember to leave an opening. I also double stitched the crotch by ironing the fold open, and sewing 1/4 inch away from the seam.
I hemed the pants, (A little too short I think... Whoopsies) and Appliqued a little matching top. I am not a pattern follower and The only shirts I know how to make aren't exactly jammies, So I opted for a plain $5 t shirt that I dressed up with Scraps. I love the way It looks and even if It makes it for 1 night it will be worth my time.
