Sharing is caring!

Learn how to make adorable pajamas for your little ones with this kids’  pajama pattern. These pajamas can be made with or without cuffs. This tutorial comes with step-by-step instructions and free templates to sew the kids’ PJs from 12 months to 5 years.



This is an extension of my earlier tutorial, easy baby leggings in 5 steps. The only difference is that I added a cuff to the leggings and made them available in higher sizes.

The Christmas season is fast approaching and it is high time we grab our Christmassy fabrics and start sewing t-shirts and Pajamas for our family. These Christmas PJs for kids make a great Christmas gift for all the children in the family to wear on Christmas eve.



You can make this Pajama pant pattern in coordinating fabrics with my t-shirt pattern to make your kids look adorable in them

This kid’s pajama pants sewing pattern is not as hard to sew as most of my beginner readers might think. You can easily sew them if you have a ballpoint needle and you have some practice with knit scraps. So, join me as I take you through the fun tutorial.

If you would like to read about the guidelines while sewing with knits refer to my kid’s t-shirt tutorial.


*All the fabrics used here are of 60- inches width.


*The fabrics shown here are only for illustration purposes and as such may vary from the original.


*The seam allowance is 3/8-inch unless otherwise specified.


*I suggest you read the entire pattern once before starting to get a general idea.


Approximate Finished Measurements


  • The pattern is for snug-fit pants. If you would like a more relaxed fit, choose a size up.



Fabric Requirements




Adding The Cuff


Cut off  2-inches from the lower edge of both the pant legs.


Cut the two cuff pieces, using the template given in the PDF.


Take one cuff piece and fold it width-wise with the right sides together and matching the edges. Sew along the side to form a tube.


Next, fold the tube halfway up, bringing the raw edges together and the right side out. Press using a mild iron to set the fold. Repeat the steps on the other cuff piece.


Let’s attach the cuff to the lower edge of the leggings.


Keep the leggings with the right side out. Keep the folded edge of the cuff, facing the lower edge of the leggings, and slide the cuff over the pants. 



Line up the raw edges of the cuff and the pants together and pin all around. You may have to stretch the cuff a little to match the raw edge of the pants.


Sew the cuff to the leggings, removing the pins as you go. Repeat the steps on the other leg with the other cuff.


Turn the cuff over to the right side. You can topstitch ( using a zigzag stitch) 1/8-inch away from the seam line, all around for a better finish. Your cuffed pants are ready!
