Grandpa’s PJs to Summer Boxers

#69 Back to School Wardrobe

REFLECTIONS: Six weeks till end of the school year, so thinking about summer wear.
  • Summer at the Texas RanchHouse is hot.
  • Love to sleep and lounge in boxers and t shirts.
BEFORE: Men's PJs gifted by family
  • Fair game for me.
  • Some went to the rag pile due to wear.
  • One smaller set was pieced to enlarge pants.
STEPS:
  • Cut legs and sleeves to shorten. Serge and hem.
  • Wet and iron dry Rick Rack  from the stash to pre-shrink. 
  • Top stitch center of  Rick Rack. Hand tack the points. 
AFTER: Ready for end of summer: 2 sets of summer PJs and 2 pair of boxers.
