Yesterday I spotted on Instagram that Shelley from Bartacks and Singletrack blog had made some PJs too.
For convenience sake, I'll just quote her: "If you make nothing else for your kids, make pyjamas! They always get worn!"
I could not agree more!
So here is the pair I made for my daughter.
I used the Billie T-shirt pattern by Zonen09 for the top. For the shorts, I self-drafted a pattern by using the Hudson pants (by True Bias) as a base. I just added 2 inches of height at the top so I could fold this over to insert the elastic. And I widened the legs a bit.
The shorts turned out perfectly (high five to myself).
To finish off the neckline and sleeves, I opted for the super lazy option: I just stitched on strips of "raw" unfinished fabric. And as thin strips of jersey do, they curled up nicely. This is the first time I tried this, and for pyjamas I think it looks pretty good. It confused my husband until I showed him a store-bought T-shirt with exactly the same finish (made me realise I must have paid way too much for it!)
Our little Miss Sunshine was pretty happy! And she's totally rocking that "fresh out of bed" haircut isn't she?!
