First were some sleep shorts. I made these from some polyester that was on clearance at Spotlight when I first started sewing. I'm not really keen on the shinyness of the material, so used some on these shorts.
They should be really simple to make, just 2 pattern pieces, with the tie for the casing being enclosed in self-facing. However the fabric was horrible, it shifted about when I was cutting it and I ended up with one front piece being longer in the leg than the back, and the other front leg being longer at the top than the back, so was real fun (not) trying to match these up.
The pattern is also meant to have 1/8" cording in the piping. I elected not to put any cording in, so just had the bias fabric showing in the side seams. I also embroidered a little white cat on the bottom of one leg.
The waist is tied with a drawstring, I used twill tape, the drawstring is inserted into buttonholes which are made on the top side only of the waist casing. I've tried to show this in the photo below.
