Spot Print PJ Pants

So this time I used the spotted side from the duvet cover.
Again I used Burda December 2007 #127 Pyjama Trousers, did have side seams but did not bother with pockets or hem splits.
The waist is a piece of 1" elastic attached to half a purple shoelace each end for the tie. I like the way the shoelace has a finished end which doesn't come unravelled like ribbon. I use a triple zip zag stitch sewn back and forth several times to secure the shoelace to the elastic inside the waistband. Its a waist treatment I like a lot for PJs. I went with purple to echo the purple buttons I used on the Panda top in case I decided to mix and match.
I am planning to make a spotty top as well and then I shall have a break from PJs.

Shoelace is a great idea! You have really taken advantage of the duvet cover fabric. Like what you have done!
