Pajama Pants Turned Into Maxi Skirt 2

I have a couple pairs of pajama pants that I’m no longer wearing, because I have too many. I hate to give them away, though. They’re so comfy with thin cotton knit material! I thought I would attempt to turn them into maxi skirts. I could wear them around the house without looking like I was in my pajamas all day, yet still have the comfort of them! Every stay-at-home-mom’s dream!

How To Turn Pajama Pants Into A Maxi Skirt


Start off with your pants laid flat.

Cut straight up the inner seams to the crotch. The back and front should be separate now.

Turn inside out and spread flat on either side so the front and back are out to the sides.

Mark and pin going down at an angle from the waistband to the end of the pants. Do this on both sides.

Sew up where you marked. I just used a straight stitch. Trim the excess fabric. The seam looks curved in this picture, but it needs to be straight.

Turn right-side-out and lay flat. Cut slits up the sides of the skirt if you want. It will be very difficult to walk in, otherwise. Mine weren’t high. Just enough to make the skirt easier to walk in.

Does it look comfy, or what? Do you think you’ll trade in some yoga pants for a couple maxi skirt pajamas?
