Students in Rachel Silsdorf’s clothing construction class at High School West will be ready to show off their pajama pants during Holiday Spirit Week at the end of the month.

Using techniques learned throughout the course, Silsdorf’s students are producing the pajama pants from start to completion.

They use a pattern template and cut the shape of the pants. They then sew the outer seam, waist band and hems.

“It’s all techniques we started on smaller projects,” Silsdorf said. “And now there’s the culmination with the pajama pants.”

Students in the course may choose to advance to Clothing Construction 2 next academic year.
