Oh man. Not only is today a release day, but it’s also a day that I get to make a fun announcement. Or rather, TWO fun announcements! Are you ready for this?
First, let’s talk about our newest pattern, and the final pattern in the P4P Summer of Wovens. The Walk the Plank PJ bottoms are super easy to make, even easier to wear, pajama bottoms that are a unisex pattern and available in sizes 3M – adult Plus 3X. Both the adult and youth patterns include three lengths (short shorts, knee length, and pant length). The adult sizes have a differing mens and womens rise, as well as varying inseams (30″ / 32″ / 34″ / 36″ ).
The Walk the Plank pant truly is a quick sew! All sizes were drafted to fit on a 44″ wide fabric, so you can easily use your favorite flannel or quilting cotton. The patterns feature no side seam, and no waistband piece, as well as a quick elastic installation. **Plus 3X were drafted with an extra side seam, so those sizes can use 44″ fabric as well.
Here’s a quick peek at the lengths:
We have been running a contest over the last week. You can read up on P4P’s Next Top Tester HERE if you’re interested in the process. We had 650 (give or take) applicants that we invited into our Top Tester group. These ladies went through some work for us! They didn’t know what they were signing up for, but we had them all test the Walk the Plank PJ Bottoms for us! Everyone did amazing, even amidst all of the chaos that testing in a group that size can bring. And guess what? We have a winner!
Well, we have four winners. These testers did an incredible job, on all levels of testing. It’s not just about taking pretty pictures. It’s about providing feedback, supporting fellow testers, being around to ask/answer questions, and help with marketing. We are so happy to have them on board with us!
Congratulations to our first ever Patterns for Pirates’ Next Top Tester: Amber Jones Zelenay 🎉🎉🎉
Our Second Place winner is: Karen Grimshaw
AND congratulations to the Runners Up: Bethany Tolman and Michelle Tobey

How do I print the pattern in the right size?
Hi- we have printing instructions with some images here: http://www.patternsforpirates.com/first-time-user-tips
Hi! Where do I cut the pattern piece in order to make the shorts version?
I love this pattern and I’ve done 2 pairs already for family Christmas pajamas! I’m now trying to figure out how to do the 3x size with the two panels per leg. I’m a little confused as to how to make it all work together. I thought I should basically follow the same process, leaving the side seams until the end, but I’m not understanding how to get all of the pieces to work together. For example, the inseam points don’t really line up between the front and pack pieces in order to sew that. Could you offer some advice or a quick tutorial? Thanks so much!
