This pattern comes with amazing options that just aren't available in the glut of free pajama patterns out on the market: side stripes and pockets. You could spend all day hacking a free pattern to add these things...or you could just get the Robin pattern, with side stripes and pockets already done for you. Oh, and a better fit with a nicer shape. And it's not just for pajamas, either! Because of the great fit with clean lines, they make excellent boardshorts.
As my girls have grown, I have some older fabric cuts that won't make much in their sizes anymore. I was so excited to find the Robin pants. When you use the optional side stripe, you can use narrower pieces, which means I can puzzle this pattern onto some of those older cuts. Plus, the side stripe is such a cute feature to add a little something different. And the best part of these pants are the pockets! A great simple sew with style. Goes great with the Avery!
