Jalie 3243–Pull-on Pants

I’ve made this pattern a few times before. It’s an easy pull-on pant. Pretty simple, but wicked awesome. I’ve made my son pajama pants and my littlest daughter a pair of rain pants from this pattern.  I think I’ll be making shorts using this pattern this summer.


Here are three more pairs for my man-child. I’m still using size M (size 9) for the waist, but I added two inches to the length so they fit for a while. He’s lean, but growing up like a weed.


Nothing too exciting here as far as sewing, but my son loves them and he loves that we had a mom-son outing and he got to pick all the fabric. The angry birds pair was the only annoying pair because I had to match the pattern across the side seams.


I love the topstitched pockets. One day I’ll make them a contract fabric so you can really see them.


I love the shaped facing that you sew in and fold over to make the waist casing. It goes in so much smoother than other pants like this. I added labels to all the pants. I also put the elastic in, finished the casing, and then stitched through all the layers at CB and CF to make sure the elastic didn’t twist all around.


See the pockets? Yea, me neither. Rest assured though, he was excited when he saw them and that’s all that matters to me. <3.


I finished my April Burda so I need to take photos and show you!

Great job on the pjs! I like this pattern too. It makes some cute summer shorts for my 8yr old DD

So have you ever sewn any for an adult from this pattern? I need an easy pull on pants pattern that doesn't make me look like I have an inner tube around the middle!

I haven't, but I have traced out my size. I want to do that for a pair of cozy pants for ME!
