Easy To Sew: PJ Shorts

You know, I'm calling this "easy to sew", but somehow I always, always, sew shorts and pants together upside down or backwards the first time. But I know it's only me - that never happens to anyone else ;) Other than that, these were really fast and really cute, I think. (They're for my 11-year-old). I used Pajama Elastic which sped the project along. (And yes, I know, I started these a month ago, but the hold up was our busy schedule and not a complicated project). Also, when your daughter picks out some really cute Jennifer Paganelli fabric and you only have a half yard, it's really fun to use another half yard of a coordinating print. I love how they turned out!

The pattern is Butterick B5153, but I can't help but think that the instructions are overly complicated (and it's a "Fashion Express 1 Hour Pattern). Also, there was a problem with the back pattern pieces and I checked, double checked and triple checked to see if I cut it right. The back was about 6 inches longer than the front. Weird. Luckily, I could just cut that off. 

Do you have a go-to pattern for PJs?
