Free Women’s Pajama Pants Pattern (+ Download PDF)

Hello peeps. I’m proud to announce my first PDF sewing pattern – pajama pants for women. And it’s free! Sign up for my newsletter here and download the pattern.

Make sure you download 2 files - the pattern and instructions.

For the longest time, I’ve been on the hunt for a free PJ pants pattern because I’m cheap and hate spending money. Many generous sewists have designed unisex pajama pants patterns and offer it for free. Their patterns are designed to be loose and baggy to accommodate all genders and sizes.

As comfy as these patterns are, I wanted something flattering to a woman’s body and similar to lounge pants I’d find at a retail store. After scouring the interweb for months without success, I said to myself, “Someone should really make a free pajama pants pattern just for women.” So I did it, and here it is.

Here are some features I’d like to highlight in this pattern.

The tapered leg

I drove my pattern maker crazy trying to get the tapered leg just right. It took us five tries to get a perfect curve that got rid of excess bagginess while providing comfortable ease.

A flattering rise

To elongate the front torso and allow for full coverage in the back, I made the back rise higher than the front.

Check out your ready to wear pants, and you’ll see a similar difference.

Easy to sew with just one pattern piece

Looking for an instant gratification project? With just one pattern piece, these pants sew up fast because there’s less cutting and sewing. New to sewing? This is a great pattern for beginning sewers.

Available in 5 sizes XS – XXL

This pattern is available in XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL. I designed the sizing based on ready-to-wear measurements from the big box stores. If you’re used to buying a specific size at a big box store, our corresponding size should be very close.

Designed for comfort

Fit and comfort go hand in hand with these pajama pants. The elastic waistband provides ultimate comfort for a lazy weekend at home binge-watching Netflix. There are no drawstrings to get in your way.

Final thoughts

I hope you enjoy this free pajama pants pattern. I made this pattern free because I want to help sewers unleash their creativity and express their personal style through DIY clothes. I look forward to sharing more free sewing patterns!

  • Thank you! I am going to make these for my DIL. She's not close and I am just guessing at her size. I will let you know how they come together and my success at the fit. I might even make some for myself.

    • Update. These went together super quick. Hardest part was putting the pages together to make the pattern. I didn't read the instructions and I ended up sewing the front and back first and then the leg seams, starting at the crotch so it matched perfectly. Cute jammies! Did them in flannel for winter, but I think some jersey would be perfect.
