Pajama Pants Resizing

I made my gentleman friend a pair of pajama pants for Christmas.  Due to an oversight on my part with the amount of fabric I bought, they had an extremely low rise.  And they were a bit too short.  He ended up with floodwater pajama pants that exposed half of his butt while also being too big around the waist.  I could fit one of me in each leg, because they were also huge.   Better luck next time, eh?  I finally resized the pants to a better fit — a better fit for me, that is!  Now I get to wear soft spaceship flannel pjs — I’m wearing them right now, actually — and I’ll try again for him with new fabric.

There’s still extra material around the waist because I simply made the elastic smaller and narrowed the legs without changing the amount of fabric at the waist, so now it’s just more gathered, especially in the back.  I added some of the scraps to my new and growing ball of fabric strips, which I will one day turn into a rag rug.
