About six months ago, I made a pair of winter pj’s (long sleeves and long pants) out of polyester flannel-backed satin. The pants are just simple elastic-waist pull-ons, and I’m happy with the fit.
I started a pair of summer pj’s (short sleeves and shorts) with the same pattern and just finished the shorts. The shorts are not comfortable..they pull down in the back. I compared them with the original pants, and the only difference I can see is that the shorts have more elastic in the waistband — it looks like about 2 inches difference. Shortening the elastic seems couterintuitive — is it really that easy?
