Well, that's what a muslin is for...

Kevin wants a new pair of pajama pants. The last pair did not feature a fly. So I found Simplicity 4381 which does.

The waist to crotch of the pattern looked huge, so I used some scraps to mock up a pair of shorts. Well, I was right. Kevin tried them on and the two of us were ROLLING in laughter. I mean, if you wear the waist at the waist (or just below) these pants are for a man with a package the size of an elephant! I'm going to remove 3" in length.

The other problem discovered, when the directions are followed exactly, the fly is a mock fly! It gets sewn shut, but I figured out easily how to fix that.

Tomorrow, the real thing.
