Easy to make perfect size. I love her pattern writing style. Used this pattern to make several pairs of pj pants family and friends. Only thing I did not like is same front and back. Found a tutorial to change rise which is super easy to do and now they are perfect.

This was the first pattern my daughter made all by herself when she was 11. The instructions are so clear, she had no problem creating two pair for gifts without any help from me. Since then (5 years ago!), we have made countless pairs of Easy-Fit pants. I can always trust Carla C patterns.

Super easy. Great intro to sewing! highly recommend. Doesn't have a ton of room in the bottom because of the design but it is for pajama pants.

by Foret, Amy

by M. Laffranchi
on June 16th, 2013

Super easy pattern, I have made many pairs of these. I've turned some into jammie shorts, some I made with ruffles, some are all one fabric, and some have a different cuff. They all turn out perfect.

by Park, Erika
on June 8th, 2013

Super easy to print the pattern and cut the fabric. I'm short-waisted and don't like pants baggy in the crotch. However, it was super easy to sew the fronts/backs and the leg seams, try them on and then mark where I wanted the waist to actually be before I made the waist casing. So, a very useful and versatile pattern to work with. People who are complaining about the front/back being the same should try that simple solution (and, it is mentioned in the description here that the front and back are the same anyway). I definitely plan to make some more linen summer crops and capris from this pattern. I might try adding side-seam pockets sometime, too.

by Rose Wilmott
on May 23rd, 2013

An excellent pattern especially for beginners. I love making myself and the whole family comfy pants out of this pattern. Add frills to pretty them up for the girls, instructions are so easy to follow.

by Smith, Linda

I've used the kid's version of this pattern many times. The adult's version is just as easy to use!

by Miller, Melody
on February 1st, 2013

This pattern is super simple and easy. I made my husband a pair, and they are they only PJ bottoms he wears in the Winter. I also made myself a pair out of some old cotton sheets, and they were a great PJ pant for the Summer.

Once again a very easy to follow pattern. Keep the great patterns coming.

by Holder, Heike
on January 5th, 2013

I am disappointed by the pattern. Front and back are the same. This cannot fit. Or are your tummy and your back all the same? It might work for little kids but not for adults.

by Brinkley, Monica
on January 3rd, 2013

Pattern is easy to understand and planning to use very soon.

by dertinger-dollahan, wanda

by Barron, Diane
on January 3rd, 2013

I made a pair of these for my husband but I wasn't sure he would wear them. I was so wrong. He loves them and wants another pair. They are very easy to make and the fit was perfect. I used my serger for the seams and they were made in less than an hour from pattern to finish.

by Fiona
on December 30th, 2012

A fantastic pattern! Love the multiple sizes. They are simple to sew and so comfortable to wear. A great pattern for beginners to sewing. I have made dozens of pairs of these.
Thank you Carla!

by Billy, Amanda
on December 24th, 2012

Super easy and the detailed instructions are awesome! It really helped me figuring out length on my 6' teenager and my average height 9 year old. So many sizes in one pattern--and I used them all for this Christmas!!

by Sew Savage

by Rosa Dolce Designs
on December 5th, 2012

This is by far the best e-pattern for pants/pajama pants I have used. I make these all the time, not only for my four girls, but my two older girls cheer team mates!!! I highly recommend this book.

by PurpleEars
on November 10th, 2012

The pattern is very easy to follow and the pants came together in no time. However, it is important to note that the legs can be slim fitting to some people. I used this pattern to make a pair of pajama bottoms for someone and the recipent found the leg openings to be too narrow for comfort. I may try the next size up the next time.

by Burdette, Teresa
on November 6th, 2012

These were very easy to follow and I am NOT a sewer. I recommend these if you are new to sewing and would like to make something that doesn't take very long and is very easy.

by Sipe, Kelli
on October 23rd, 2012

So terribly easy to make, whipped up a pile of these in no time! So glad she made a pattern for adults for these. This is the ONLY pajama / lounge pant pattern you need!

These are the best! Kids or adults, everyone I've made them for loves them! They're especially nice for teens. It's hard to find things to make for young men so it's great to have this pattern because you know the gift will be a hit!

by Smith, Jodie

Most used pattern I have. Works for almost the whole family (have the other pattern for the littlest kids ... also my favorite pattern). I love how adaptable it is. I use it to make pajamas, Capri pants, shorts, play pants, bloomers, and more. I love it! The only pants pattern I need. I love tht I only need to print out the size I need. Love this!!!

by VannaD
on May 17th, 2012

I LOVE! This Pattern!!
My children, husband & myself all have these pants.
The patern is easy to alter for even more design options and that is a main factor when I buy a new pattern.
The pieces and instructions are a dream for new sewers and quick and easy for advanced sewers like myself.

by Lewis, Tamara
on May 6th, 2012

Very easy pattern to follow. Made my son and husband matching lounge pants for watching football games together and my daughter loves her pants with ruffled bottoms in a cute horse print.

Just as my children were about the grow out of the kids Easy Fit Pants pattern, Carla came out with this version and saved the day! Now the whole family can enjoy Easy Fit Pants - and we do! I love how quick and easy these are to whip up and I know they are sure to please. This pattern is the perfect starter project for anyone wanting to learn to sew!

by Baker, Carolyn
on March 2nd, 2012

It doesn't get any better then this! This pattern and the one for younger ages is the best pants pattern ever! I have made TONS of pants using these patterns. So easy to follow! My mom even uses it and she's a beginner (I'm not much more than that myself). Easy to follow and quick to sew!

by Mock, Melanie
on February 23rd, 2012

I love all CarlaC's patterns, instructions are clear, sizing is very easy. I've only made the adults pants for myself, but in several different lengths. Absolutely fantastic!

by Cabrera, Flavia

Not enough good things to say about this pattern. Super easy and comes out GREAT!

by Crumpton, Rosa
on February 8th, 2012

This is a great pattern and it's nice to be able to make matching pants/pj's for the whole family. However, it's not really designed for people curvy bottoms. I really think there should be a bundle pack for the kids and adult sizes. That being said, Carla's patterns and instructions are always crystal clear. The fit of her designs are great too! I highly recommend this and all of her patterns!

by Normandin, Melissa
on February 5th, 2012

Great pattern! Thanks for another one!

by Bartleson, Lindsay
on February 2nd, 2012

This is a pattern you can use again and again. I made my son's pants for his Halloween costume and I'll use it for PJ bottoms in the near future. It's super easy and sews up quickly and a beginner would do well with it.

by Pyell, Beth
on February 1st, 2012

Great pattern, was able to make pants for the whole family! Thank You

by Caron, Robin
on January 26th, 2012

I did a little sewing back in my teen/ home economics years and I was able to make these pants in a multitude of sizes with no trouble at all. Directions were so well written and laid out it was all a piece of cake! I even made my son costume pants for his Order of the Arrow regalia that look really great!

by Smith, Christine M
on January 24th, 2012

Best pants pattern out there, just as easy to put together as the kids pants. Love it!

by Brasher, Jennifer
on January 23rd, 2012

Simply the easiest pj pants pattern ever! We range in size from 5'1 to 6'5 height and 90 to 250 lbs and this one pattern was a fit for all of us. Talk about cost efficient and time efficient. I would recommend this pattern to everyone. THANKS!

by Sudz-N-Seamz

I was so excited to get my favorite pattern in sizes for me. I love being able to make lounge pants for me in all the cute fleece prints that are available.

by Whelan, Tricia
on January 16th, 2012

Perfect PJ bottom pattern, glad there is now an adult version as both my boys have out grown the kids version.

by Woodson, Robin
on January 16th, 2012

These are very easy to make. A few years ago, I made them as Christmas sleep pants for my grown sons, who are both over 6'5". My older son loved the fact that they were LONG enough, as most commercial sleep pants are too short for him.

by seaman, teresa

by Renee M.
on January 5th, 2012

Pants in no time!! One design that fits both men and women. Now making matching pjs for the Polar Express train is a cinch!

by Mary Kate
on December 5th, 2011

I've made lots of pj pants by just tracing around an old pair and wasn't sure these would be much better, but they really are great! The fit is absolutely perfect and the pattern and instructions are so well written with some great tips. I'm making these for the whole family for Christmas this year!

by Ginger
on October 31st, 2011

I've made this pattern (and the kid's version) so many times I've lost count. It's a great pattern.

Being inspired by one of the tester's photos, I decided to make myself a pair of Easy Fit maternity pants. I made 1 size larger than I normally do. I used button hole elastic (leaving an inch-2 inch gap in the waist unsewn) and left extra tucked into the waist. As my belly grows I'm able to adjust the elastic. After the baby is born I plan to replace the elastic with normal elastic (and sew the gap closed) to fit my non-pregnant waist. These pants were made for pajama pants, so having them a little roomy after the baby is born will be fine. These are so much more comfy than my normal maternity pants. With different fabric they would be great for normal (non-sleeping) going out in public wear. I plan to make another pair for myself soon.

by Jennifer Avenell
on August 1st, 2001

This is a very easy pattern. I am a novice sewer and I made a pair in fleece for my daughter in an afternoon. She loves them! I have plans to make more for her plus some for my hubby and son to wear as lounge pants. Thanks for an easy to follow pattern.

by Robin C
on August 1st, 2001

I just made my first pair of pants! Because I have never sewn clothes before it took me a few hours from print to finish, but they were so easy! I plan on making many more now that I know I can! Thank you!

by Teresajoy
on August 1st, 2001

This pattern was so much fun to make!!! I was overjoyed when Carla told us she was making an adult version of one of my all time favorite patterns!!! These were so quick and so EASY to make! I had them done in about an hour! I love wearing my new comfy jammie pan)ts and plan to make many more!

by Kelly
on August 1st, 2001

I'm am soooo EXCITED! I've made these pants for my kiddos for two years now. Every pair is loved and worn to shreds! I just made a new pair in polar fleece for my 4 year old son - West Virginia Mountaineers - they're so comfortable he wore them for three days DAY and NIGHT. They are the first things he grabs out of the laundry room. I've always wanted a pattern for me... even Dad has asked for a pair. Off to sew......!!!!!

by christy

by JenZ
on August 1st, 2001

I love the earlier Easy Fit Pants pattern so much that I had to get this one. It's just as easy as the pattern for smaller sizes and just as quick to make. I usually make pants for my kids (and I used this pattern for my older niece) but I plan to make some for myself now :)

by Angel Sweezea
on August 1st, 2001

What a wonderful pattern! Easy to sew with great instructions and totally customizable. I am making them for the whole family!

by Tiffany

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pattern. It was SO easy and came together so quickly. I have enjoyed wearing them so much. I can't wait to make another pair!

by Rachel Flores
on August 1st, 2001

I am a big fan of CarlaC and this pattern is just as easy to make with excellent instructions as the rest of her patterns BUT this a a pattern for non curvy people, if you have some "junk in the trunk" these pants are likely not to fit or be very baggy in the front. My super skinny sisters thought they were great.

by Kristy Moroz
on August 1st, 2001

Another AWESOME pattern by CarlaC. I actually bought the pattern when it was first released but have not actually sewn it until the other day. I LOVE the fact that I can whip a pair of comfy lounge pants in about 45 minutes. The pattern is written extremely clear and super easy to follow. I even made my self a "skort" using a simple a-line for the skirt and the easy fits for the legs. It was perfect. THANK YOU so much Carla C for sharing your talent with us.

by April Byers
on August 1st, 2001

Wow!! These are the easiest pants to make. It took me less than an hour to cut pattern, sew, and give to my daughter to wear. I love Carla C patterns! Her patterns are the best!! Thank you Carla C!!

by Tina Brown
on August 1st, 2001

Perfect. Just as great as the kids version. Comfy cozy. Easy to make. I made my pair in about 1 and 1/2 hours. LOVE THEM
