Pyjamas for Lj
Independent Lj no longer wants to wear an all-in-one sleep suit to bed since she discovered a pair of pyjamas in her wardrobe. I think she enjoys being able to pull the trousers and top on herself. However the pyjamas which she found are too large so I thought I would have a go at making her a pair to fit. I knew I had some cotton jersey knit in my stash from a trip to The cheap shop last summer and thought I could use a pattern from Clothes kids love by Nancy Langdon which I also purchased last summer.
I'm so pleased with the results for two reasons...
:: I have never sewn with a jersey before so was a little unsure of how it would hem etc
:: It was the first time I had used a pattern from 'Clothes kids love', as previously I have looked at and loved the clothes in this book but felt to daunted to try making them myself.
The turquoise sleeves were not in the original plan but I ran out of fabric and thankfully had an old top in the fabric bag which I could cut up and use.
Lj seems to like her new pj's too!
