Weekend Sewing - Lounge pants

Maggie from Vingt Centimes and Liz from The Quilted Turtle are hosting a "Weekend Sewing" projects from Heather Ross's book. I decided to join and made these lounge pants for my niece Ashley. I had to change the pattern a bit. First of all she wanted the pants to hang on her hips. So I cut off 4 inches at the top. Then I added a drawstring instead of elastic. Made from one of my sheets she had picked out. When I got the sheet she wanted a dress from it. I started to cut it out and noticed white paint on the sheet. It just wasn't enough for the dress, but the pants work. Can't wait until she sees them.

I have been thinking about making these next. I have some other pj pant patterns that I don't love, but these look baggy and comfy! I might use your tip and cut some inches off the top too.
