Sewing Project 1: PJ Pants!

Pattern: Burda 7765, Pant A

My first project with the new Pfaff went really well technically.  The machine runs like a dream.  The over locking stitch is awesome and so is the automatic buttonhole maker.

Maybe I should check the size more closely next time I jump into a project.  The pants are a bit tight around the thighs.  Oh well.  It was lots of fun to make!  I bought more fabric so I can adjust the pattern and add some room in the seat!

Here's the first attempt... and all my seams lined up beautifully. :D  Tee hee.

Pattern: Burda 7765, Pant A  Review
The pattern is quite simple, but has a strangely designed elastic waist.  It only has elasticity on the sides.  I thought that was weird so I added an elastic waistband all the way around, and options for a drawstring using my automatic buttonhole stitch.  These are designed quite slimly and would be great for someone with slim legs.
