How to Resize Pajama Pants

Short Story of Resize Pajama Pants

Last week I have a day free so I started with clean up mission in the House. Sudden I realize that I have so much stuff that can be categorize as Ancient art of the world (kidding) So I made my all mess dump into cotton boxes. I realized that something unusual I have find out. It was my PJ which was given by my Aunt, I hardly wear them as if given by my cruel enemy  ( My aunt 😀 ).  The point is that why should I waste that pink floral Pj so I have decided to Re-Create it and give present to my younger sister. Nothing is useless in my point of view that’s why I’d dump everything in cotton boxes. The summary of all thing is that I am going to Resize Pajama Pants.

Steps to Resize Pajama Pant:

Step 1:  Lay down old PJ and then use desire size PJ (in my case 36”). For convenience mark points by chalk and do cutting. Use medium Scissor.
