Keeping in line with the sleeping pants theme that has consumed me of late, I finally made myself a pair. My little boy christened them "Mommy jammas" when he saw them so that I could match his "monkey jammas". It would be nice to call them lounging pants but I think they are the wrong fabric - just simple cotton that is perfect for the hot climate I live in. I picture lounging pajamas to be more along this line:
Ah, yes, in silk and lace, quietly reading a magazine or book, reclining on my satin chaise with my herbal tea in a china cup by the side table, well lit, nails perfect, made up with every hair in place, high heel shoes that I only wear with this outfit. And of course, 20 pounds lighter and 20 years younger. *sigh* Instead, I tend to look more like this wearing my own brand of monkey jammas. Such is life.
Yes, I'm sure that I could easily make the lounging pajama and I will someday. It looks easy enough. Of course, I've never worked with satin. I hear its very slippery. That might be a problem. However, I digress.
Everyday pajama pants. By the way, I won't be wearing them with the golf shirt. And I will have to train Mr. Sanguine to take sewing-appropriate pictures.
The fabric is just quilting fabric that I fell in love with. I have a thing for birds. If you can see in the second and third picture, I cuffed the pants in a contrasting blue fabric to give them a little interest. These pajama pants are soft and loose with a gathered waist and they will be a joy to sleep in and any other lounging I can think of.
