I decided to make some "lounge-shorts". Perfect for wearing around the house. Comfortable and over-sized. I used McCall's 6231 pajama pants pattern, but made the legs shorts-length.
I made a pair for Joe first. There is no fly. I sewed a fake fly seam, so it would be easier to tell front from back. They turned out so well, I made a pair for me. Of course his are medium and mine are small.
I used my Bernina 817 for Joe's pair. This is a 3/4 size flatbed Bernina. I can't believe how smooth and powerful this machine is. I posted a short video of it on Youtube I have had this machine since March, but this is the first project with it because it had no case. Since the motor is mounted on the bottom, I could not simply place it on the table to use. I lucked out last weekend finding a case for $2 at a yard sale. I don't go to yard sales too often, but this one was on the street where we walk Max. Max received lots of pets and kisses from the yard sale attendees.
I used my Pfaff 1469 to write our names on the shorts so we wouldn't get confused.
My next project is some short-sleeved pajama tops for us with the same McCall's pattern.
I am sure a photo-shoot will be necessary.
Thanks for stopping.
