My lovely friend Justine purchased and fabric swopped the latest oliver+s patterns with me.
The SleepOver pajamas was one pattern we didn't originally order. We both intended too but at a later date.
Then we spotted these and had to have the pattern immediately!
I do measure my tribe but find with most patterns a sizing trial is useful to gauge the fit. The finished garment will fit someone-sometime.
Zara and Elsa have a camp next week and some new pajamas were in order. My favourite BedTime Story pattern are getting a bit tight on the old botty region so I went with the size 12 in the SleepOver's.
I made them in knit with a woven trim which made them quicker as there was no need to ease the sleeves-they stretched to fit and I overlocked all the seam staggering them at the hems.
The size 12 fit my 14 year old Hugo.
He doesn't generally wear pajamas but he reckons they will be great for after a shower.
I used a City Weekend fabric for the trim and some lovely white river stone buttons.
Hugo is average height small build but very muscle-y so a woven would not have fit him.
Hugo is an also an incredibly good sport!
Doncha love his shoes?

PS I have cut out the 10 for the Twins and they have chosen the fabric........
