While I do not have anything against baggy pants (PJs not included), sometimes I buy something that begs to be altered. I went to the local thrift store awhile ago and purchased some white pants -- they were my size, but they were quite boxy and baggy when I tried them on at home after they went through the wash.
So . . . my fabric scissors, white thread, and needle came to the rescue.

Of course, I could have stopped right here. But no!
I took out some black acrylic paint, mixed it with a little pit of water, and then I got down to some business:
And then, the finished project:
I have a feeling that I'll be wearing these a lot in the future.
