Free Pajama Pant Pattern
This is one thing I hardly ever buy, is pajama pants. They are so easy to make yourself if you have a good pattern or instructions. Unlike regular pants, pajama pants need to fit roomy and loose. They are really hard to mess up. I’m sharing a free kids pajama pants pattern for sizes 10, 12, 14 and 16. My son is 10 years old right now and that is all he wears to sleep (plus a tee). He loves the fit and the feel.

I always use flannel fabric for his sleep pants. If you have never sewn with flannel, check out my tips for sewing with flannel.
The pj pants in the featured image above are made with the luxurious flannel called “Teepees” on mint green from Northcott’s Teepee Time Collection by Deborah Edwards. I ADORE this collection!
If you prefer knit pajama patterns, then you might like my free kids pajama pattern. My son loves straight cut PJ pants and my daughter loves her snug fitting knit pajamas. I was the same way but nowadays I love loose fitting PJ pants myself.
Here is the cutting chart:
Be sure to check the finished inseam column before you hem the legs. You might have to cut the legs a tad shorter depending on your child’s inseam!
What you need to make PJ pants:
- Fabric (you can use fleece, cotton or flannel fabric)
- Download the crotch/leg template <=======

My son loves his new comfy sleep pants! The fabric is amazingly soft and washes well. I always wash and dry my fabrics before I sew them.
Here is another pair I made, this time in this cute sheep print on lavender. This fabric is not available anywhere anymore.

Awesome!! Thanks Pam!

Thanks so much for this. Finding a pj pattern in these sizes seems almost impossible until now. I have a question about taping the two crotch pieces together from your pattern. There is no line indication where the two pieces should line up before taping them together. Can you post a picture of you taping them together, or give the length measurement of the piece after it is taped together? (Tip of point to top of piece once taped together). Thank you so much for this great tutorial!
Thank you for checking out this free pattern post! The crotch template gets taped on their short/straight ends. I don’t have a picture of this but it’s super simple.
Sherry S says
Yes, but do they get taped together without trimming the paper, or do they get taped together after trimming the paper to where the drawing lines start? A measurement from tip of piece to end would be great if you don’t have a picture.
I love how this pattern is written. SO MUCH easier than trying to tape 20 pages together! Great work. I’m wondering if you might have this pattern for smaller children as well? I see your knit PJ pattern, but my 4yo likes the loose fitting pants.
So happy to hear you like the tutorial! For simple/straight lines I always minimize the amount of templates needed. I don’t have a free pants pattern for smaller sizes but my patterns for sale are almost always on sale 😉 Please see the pants pattern here: https://tidd.ly/6f88adc7

Thank you for this opportunity that you gave me. I liked the YouTube. The making looked easy to me as a beginner. The illustration was good and encouraging . I am very enthusiastic to make a pj for my grandson using your free pattern. .
Thank you so much!! I appreciate your comment and wish you lots of fun sewing!!
Thank you so much for a PJ pattern for the older kid! My son is 10 and has outgrown all the kid patterns I have for him. I had to re-size an adult pattern for his Christmas PJs. It was fine, but not great. This is simple, quick, and I love it! Thanks again!
I am so happy to hear you like this free pattern! Happy sewing!
Where is the flannel pattern? Found the knit pattern but don’t want that one.
Scroll down to where it says “how to make the PJ pants” and click on “crotch/leg” templates. The fabric gets cut by provided measurements from the chart in the post.
This looks like a great way to make pyjamas and I’m keen to try it. I was wondering what size would the size 16 equate to in womens sizes? I want to make some pyjamas for myself and would be a size 10-12 (Australian size).
Hi Sue, so glad you like this free pattern!! Unfortunately I don’t have women’s sizes just yet.
Oh, I have been looking for a multi sized pants pattern to make for charity. This is wonderful and I love the templates. What a fabulous idea! I am making sleepwear to send to Houston in October. I have plenty patterns for toddlers, but those bigger children need things too. And I am doing just as you mentioned, nice bottoms with a tee. So comfy and cozy. Thank you so much for making this pattern.
I made these today for my son for his birthday. I used fleece rather than flannel, though. They were so easy to make. Thank you!
Hi there, I have used your pattern a few times. Ow and love it! I’ve just gone to make another pair but the video tutorial has gone. Do I measure down 1 inch from the top to allow for the front and back?
Hi, I can’t find the pattern, only the crotch template, am I missing something? i really want to make these. Thanks
You must be a mom, because this method is GENIUS! Thank you for sharing. I’ll be making these for my big kid 🙂
How can I adjust this for a bigger waistline. TIA
