Unlike other designs in the book, there is no ease in this design because it is intended to be worn either for layering or as pajamas. However, it features a stretchy waffle knit pattern (a Grow-With-Me-Tip!) so you don’t have to worry about it being outgrown overly quickly. Still, size up if you’d rather it be worn as an outer layer or just don’t want as snug of a fit. Shown in size 6. Check out the bottoms here.
