Women's Pajama Pants
Here's a pajama pants pattern available in a PDF that fits sizes XXS through XXL. Just measure your waist and hips and choose which size you need from the pattern chart. Keep in mind that the leg is meant to be wide on these, and you'll want to taper the pattern down first if you'd like them more fitted.
The waist is both made from elastic and knit fabric to make it extra comfy. This pattern allows you to add pockets if you prefer, too. There's also a pajama shorts pattern available. A serger is used to assemble the pants but you could carefully use a regular sewing machine instead.
