Pajama pants from Easy-to-sew Simplicity Pattern

 Easy to Sew  Simplicity 8389 Using for Pajama pants Making baggy leg pants to go with Baggy Top I have this nice soft cotton knit with bicycles on it.  I made the top for the Pajamas by cutting accross the fabric folded over long enough to be the front where I wanted it and that was the front and back... held it up to be the right length and folded the two pieces over making a slanted mark for the shoulders and then a scoop for the neckline slightly for the back piece and a little lower for the front.  This way when I hold  it up I know the front has a lower neckline than the back.
