There’s something about these pants, perhaps it’s in the name. I definitely have been doing more lounging these days, which is a good thing, considering my self-imposed busy schedule.
For my second pair, I did end up slimming down the pattern by 3cm on each side seam (for a total of 12cm). The pants are still wide legged, but now I think they’re perfect for me. If you’re planning on doing the same, I recommend making a first pair as the pattern suggests and making your second pair with any fit adjustments. Once you make one pair, you will at least want one more pair so that you can wear them every single day. Trust me.
The fabric is from Amy’s new line, Daisy Chain, and the print is called Dandelion Reed. I couldn’t resist the blue and grey, since it matches my bedroom and my quilt in progress. I might make one more pair, but that’s it. The Kimono Robe and Bedside Organizer are next on my list from the In Stitches book.
I was surfing around on BurdaStyle last night and found a few patterns that I’m thinking of trying out. My current winter wardrobe is very uninspiring.

Ooo I love these pants! I was considering buying the book just for these pants alone as the rest didn’t really grab me, seeing yours really really makes me want to put in my Amazon order!
rebecca – yes, it’s well worth it for this easy pattern alone. they are as cozy as can be.
Too bad you didn’t get to that Dagg & Stacey sale – or that I hadn’t read this post yet, there were some cozy knit fabrics that would have been perfect for that Burda cardigan. I have some nice wool you might like for that vest, maybe we can do tradesies?
[…] pair of Folksy Flannel pajama pants. I definitely need more flannel in my life. I used the Amy Butler lounge pant pattern for the third time, taking the original wide leg in by just over an inch. I’m not ashamed to […]
