In a few days I’ll be starting my new job working from home. I decided I needed some grownup Pajamas. I used Butterick 6296.
I bought a 10 yard bolt of teal broad cloth for this. I started with the shorts because I wanted to check the fit of them before cutting out the pants which would take much more fabric. I ended up liking the shorts so Im not sure I will ever get around to the pants.
They have an elasticized waist band, pockets and a yolk construction in the back.
The insides are unlined so I serged all the seams.
This is the first time I have used piping. I chose a lime green to contrast the teal. I love this color combo but I’m not sure if others people like it. You can see it better on the top.
For the top I used the long sleeve version. The only alteration I made was lengthening the arms by 2″.
