I made these jammies just for me: extra long with floor-sweeping luxury. At 5 feet, 10 inches, most anything I buy from the store that is meant for legs sits right at "flood stage" on me. So not cool.

Luckily PJ bottoms are nice and easy to sew (trust me, or I wouldn't even attempt them) and a cinch to alter, length-wise.

I used a funky lime green cherry printed flannel and accented with a hot pink satin at the bottom. They are so cozy, if I didn't have a strict rule about not wearing PJ's to the grocery store, I'd be wearing these babies 24/7.

Anyone else craving a cherry-lime ricky from Sonic? Anyone, anyone?

I gave up my "No PJs at the grocery store" rule awhile ago. I go early on Saturday mornings and it's pretty much dead (this morning I couldn't even find anyone to check me out), so I don't worry too much about it. I love your PJ pants and I am completely addicted to cherry limeade and grape limeade from Sonic (along with several other combinations....the drinks are .99 before 11 and I get them on a regular basis on the way to work!)

We live for Lime Rickeys! I haven't tried a cherry one though. Totally cute jammies!!!! You are awesome. I'm not much of a sewer (is that the right spelling?) but after seeing what you've created I'm tempted to dig my dusty sewing machine out of storage and give it a whirl.

OK, I would wear jammies to a store if they were that cute! In Utah, I would never go to the grocery store unless I had full makeup on. It's like going out to a nice meal with your husband. You have to dress up. Just last week, when I was in Utah, this lady came into Target and her girls were all dolled up with ribbons and everything ( and it was 9 in the morning!)....made me long for laidback Oregon!
