Sewing for boys.........

Or more likely in this house, Sewing for a man!, Actually this is the first time I've sewn anything for Mark, I finally convinced him of his need for a pair of "mummy make Pj pants", except that sounds a bit wrong, I think we will call them "wife made"!
I used the "Pajama's for Everyone" Pattern from "Weekend Sewing" by Heather Ross. I settled on the large size, but didn't have quite enough fabric for the length so I chopped 3" off the bottom of the legs, and was intending to add a cuff after Mark tried them on, I'll mention here that Mark is approx. 6'4", so in no way even average sized,  When he tried them on, It was obvious that a quick Hem and no length put back on, would finish them!

I cut two pair out at the same time, the other pair are the same just in a green camo. Surprisingly Mark loves them, says they are comfy, and is even wearing them to bed! I think he is a little chuffed to finally have something I've made all for himself! Can you see Miss Laura in the above photo? she thought it was terribly unfair that I was taking photo's of Daddy without her in them!!

Thank you all for the advice on my last post, I've done some test quilting, and settled on a Pale pink for the front and white for the bobbin, and if I do say so myself, it is looking awesome!!! I can't wait to show it off!!
