How much fabric do I need for pajama pants?
Amount of fabric needed: 3 yards of 44″ wide fabric will work with most sizes. If your pajamas are more than 20″ at the widest point when folded in half, you may have to cut only one layer of fabric at a time for each half leg.
Lay the bottom part of the leg you just cut off onto the other leg matching up the bottom edge of the legs. Cut off the second leg. My friend thought these would be cute with the cuff taken off the bottom and put back on the shortened length. So I cut them off leaving about a 1/2 inch above the black trim.

A French seam encloses the seam allowance on the inside of a sewn item, so no raw edge is visible. This eliminates the need for another form of seam finish. It’s used most commonly on sheer fabric, so the seam blends with the fabric. Once you understand the steps, a French seam is fairly quick and easy to sew.
