Sewing Basics 1

Project: Sew the Nocturne Pajama Pants

Price: $129, which includes the Nocturne Pants sewing pattern, pattern pieces shipped to your door (free shipping in the US), 6 hours of video instruction, and lifetime membership in the Learn to Sew support group.

Pajama pants are the BEST first project – low stakes, very useful, and a perfect form of self-care. The Nocturne Pajama Pants are perfect for loungewear, but depending on the fabric you choose, you can also wear them out and about. The pants feature a simple, comfortable paper bag waist, with the option of a lower rise, basic elastic waistband. The pockets, of course, are deep and luxurious.
