Take the photos before handing over the sewing.
I made these pyjamas, B6296 , last year for Elsa.
My favourite pyjama pattern.
And not just because I am a total Liesl fangirl, well, maybe just a bit.
A replacement pair for her worn out watermelons
I truly love sewing these and go all out, piping everything I can.
I like to use pre-made poly/cotton piping (less chance of colour run) and I use my method of applying it to the cuff before sewing it to the garment and then top stitching it in place.
This incloses those seams for a neat finish.
I also favour interfacing the facings and top stitching them in place. This stops them curling in the wash.
I like to top stitch my pocket bags down too.
I like to 'wrap' my waistband too.
Attaching the waist band to the inside first and then topstitching it in place.
*If piping the back bottoms yoke seam it is best to neaten both edges first as it is quite tricky to run that seam through the overlocker after piping.
The first time I made these pyjamas we found the shoulder was a little wide and the legs are way, way too long for us shorties.
I find whatever size I make, I do this alteration.
Apart from that, a perfect pj pattern.
As stated previously I love my loungewear, so when it comes to pjs I want something warm and snuggly.
They definitely hit the mark not to mention they have alpacas (or I should say llamas) on them!
I still have my watermelon ones which I have worn to the point that they are wearing thin.
Thanks mum, definitely will commission some more!
I always enjoy sewing these pyjamas.
The first time I sewed them I was so surprised at how long they took to make but now I know, it is a very enjoyable marathon.
I have made them five times now and have a shorty Shibori pair cut and ready to sew!
I *think* there may be an errata with the collar notches? I have traced my pattern piece and corrected it but be aware of that is you have troubles.
In conclusion, if you are tall and have broad shoulders this is a perfect pattern for you!
If you are a little shorter and petite it is a very easy fix to make this a perfect pattern for you. i.e. Shorten the leg and trim and inch or so from the shoulder!
