When I made these as part of Elsie Marley’s KCWC, I had no idea they would receive so much love!

They were inspired from a pair of ruffled boxers I found on Pinterest months and months ago, and simple knew I could recreate them.
Being short on time, I simply whipped the two pairs up for my girls without thought of a tutorial. (I don’t like to recreate tutes on things I see for sale at small Mom and Pop shops. Feels like stealing money from someone’s pocket who put their hard work, time and effort into their product. But the GAP or JCrew on the other hand – watch out! HA). Upon further investigation, this shop seems to no longer be in business. And in all reality, it is really just a pair of pajama bottoms with a ruffle along the bottom.
So when I received such an outpouring of requests for a tutorial for these cutie patootie bottoms, I did what I could to accommodate…
First, you will need a pattern for pajama shorts or pants. I like to self draft mine from a pair of pants that I know fit well to begin with. You can find a tutorial on how to self draft pant / short patterns HERE. And of course, if you are lucky enough to have a Size 2/3T child, Dana offers a free pattern as well!
