Marking And Drafting Of Simple Pajama From Close Side :

1. First take fabric equal to double of (length + 4 inch) lengthwise and keep it in two layers.

2. Now fold this doubled layer fabric widthwise equal to 1/3rd of hips + 2 inch as pajamas are of loose wearing.

3. After that fold 2 inch from top and bottom for cord/elastic band and foothole fold respectively.

4. Now take crotch length + 0.5 inch (sewing seam).

5. Draw another line (range of width gap is 1.0 to 2.5 inch) parallel to crotch length line.

6. Take 0.5 inch extra from the range gap on the crotch length line (if width gap is 1 inch, then take 1.5 inch lengthwise from bottom on crotch length line).

7. Join 0.5 inch extra lengthwise mark in a curve manner with the width gap mark.

8. At bottom (foothole) mark half of foothole + 0.5 inch (sewing seam).

9. Join the outer crotch length mark to foothole mark and then continue it in outer direction so that it matches the upper line of foothole mark.

The crotch length curving pattern is as follows :
