I tried coming up with a catchier name, but in the end I decided it was unnecessary.  They’re pajama pants….but who am I kidding?  I sometimes let nighttime blur into day time…and then I just like to call them pants.

We could even call them the number one thing I get asked to make for large families pants.

Or the I don’t know what to get you for Christmas, so I made you pajama pants (pants).



PDF sewing pattern for loose-fit unisex pajama pants.

The options include:

  • Regular and low-rise
  • Side seam pockets
  • Elastic waistband
  • Cut lines for shorts, capris, and pants
  • Optional drawstring
  • Optional trim accent on legs
  • Tested on both men and women.  We recommend women go down one size.

These are loose fitting and we recommend using the outseam for sizing purposes.   Outseam can be measured from waist to hem, on the outside of the leg.  This pattern can be made in quilting cotton, flannel, knit or fleece.  Sizes include XXS – 5XL.  The pattern pieces will include separate files for 8.5×11, A4, and A0 formats.  PLEASE only use the A4 format if you are using an A4 printer (ie, not in the US)! The tutorial will be a separate file.

    This pattern is great! Such an easy sew with many different options to make the perfect comfy pants. The directions are well written with excellent photos and images to help guide you. There is even a layout guide for your fabric! Most PDF patterns do not include this. Also the sizes are layered in the PDF so you can create a pair of pants that fits perfectly! This was my first 5 out of 4 pattern and I was very pleased with everything. There are also 3 different printing options for U.S. and international printers. If you need a pair of pajama pants this is the pattern for you! They’re not just for lounging around the house though because I’m planning on making a pair out of linen for the beach next summer too!

    I wanted to make pajama pants for my dad as a christmas gift and I was having trouble finding a good pattern. I made a pair using a store bought pattern and I hated the way they came out! After asking around I was introduced to this pattern so I gave it a shot. SO glad I did! These pants came out perfect, exactly what I was looking for and an easy to follow pattern. I can’t wait to buy more patterns from 5 out of 4.

    A great, simple pattern. Easy to follow.
    I measured up at the very low end of an XL and I like quite roomy pajamas so went with the XL. They fit well, but in hindsight, I’d go for the L as the finished pajamas really are roomy (it does say this on the pattern, it gives finished measurements too, and also suggests if you’re between sizes that you should choose the size down – but as a larger woman I’m stuck in the mentality of bigger being the safer option!).

    Great pattern! My son loved the fit and pockets. I was able to get a pair of size medium high rise out of 2 yards of 60″ wide knit and have enough left over for a size medium men’s boxers and still have a little left over.

    While I haven’t made this yet, I LOVE the layers, so much easier to then print on a black and white printer. This will work perfectly for my 10 yr old I can’t find anything that will fit her well.

    Easy to sew, good directions. End up very baggy though despite following measuring guides.
