I absolutely love it! I wear it everywhere I go. It is so feminine and yet so comfortable. You have to know that I intend on buying up all of the cotton jersey pajama pants in the nation for more of these! The tutorial has some [badly drawn]photoshop images because I over-complicated the original process. Also, this was one of those things that just didn't offer up the right opportunities for clear, instructional photos. regardless, it is so simple!
Full tutorial after the jump.
Pair of pajama pants
Optional but very helpful tools:
Rotary cutter (scissors of course will work but I cannot reccomend a rotary cutter enough!)
Gathering foot (If your machine shirrs with elastic you can do that too, if you cannot do either you can hand ruffle it takes a bit more time but not much. I'll link to two good tutorials at the end.)
Quilting guide (Super helpful in keeping gathering stitches somewhat straight)
Gather in rows every inch (or less) across the width, with your stitches following the length of the fabric. Do not worry if your scarf starts to shorten on one side, you can always run more gathering stitches on the longer sides to shorten it up. You can also trim the fringe to give it the look of being evenly gathered.
Oh, and if you have lots of leftover fabric like I did, you can create some matching accessories like this brooch and hair clip.
