It doesn’t get super hot here on the NorCal West Coast, but that just means that we’re acclimated to cooler temperatures. So when the thermometer does rise, we’re easily overheated.

This summer, I made pajama shorts for Brother and Young Son, to help them stay comfortable through the night. I used a simple pattern and finished all four pairs within a few days. They are all 100% cotton and I used fabric from my stash, so they didn’t cost much. The only thing I had to buy was the non-roll elastic for the waistbands.
