This is because I love you.

Well, folks. I would like to tell you a story. It is story of a pregnant girl who desired new jammies. See, my old pjs are fine, I have like... three pair of pants mixed with the random t-shirts, you know?

But, I felt a hankering deep down inside for NEW ones. I had the fabric, and NO PATTERN, and a flat tire on my van. So I figured, NOT A PROBLEM, I can whip up little boy pants with no pattern in 30 minutes. NOT A PROBLEM.

So, I began.

And well, folks. First, they were too small. This was a marvel unto me considering I'd used MY OWN PANTS as a pattern. But, the original pants had been stretchy. WHOOPS!


Rather than start over (I had enough fabric), I decided to just ADD PANELS.

This, my friends, was a mistake.


But I continued, imaging the fantastic post I'd write for you about how to save a pair of PJs.

But then the crotch was too low, (we call that a "rise"). NOT A PROBLEM said I. I just decided to add ANOTHER panel to to the top.

Except I failed to measure, and came up 5 inches short on the waist. AND I sewed it on upside down and backwards.


So now dear readers, I give unto you, Morgan's epic fail for the week, in pictures:
I am wiping away tears because I was laughing so hard. Don't feel bad for me. It was seriously hilarious. Made more funny because my 16 year old brother was there to witness, and Erin came in there at the end and took the pictures.

And the crotch was still too low. I could barely climb up on that chair. Note Henry laughing at me as well.


You're welcome.

ETA: My hand is on my chestal area to HOLD UP the stupid pants.

I love that you re-invented the overall (albeit completely by accident) of the most amusing moments I've had recently.

Love the fabric. Glad you can laugh at your failure.

P.S. Why didn't said 16 yr old bro change the flat tire?

Amber- not a bad thought, except the spare was also flat. I could go NOWHERE!

Somehow this reminds me of a certain person getting certain pajama pants stuck on her head....Another exceptionally amusing moment brought to you by the Bills' pants. Get it, YOU'RE the Bills! ;)

I am glad you have a sense of humor because I would have been bawling by that point. My only question is...exactly HOW pregnant are you planning on getting?

I still have my Christmas PJ's in my needs fixed pile for low crotch issues. And the last maternity thing I sewed ended up around my ankles at church. There is a reason it was the LAST.
