Butterick B6296 Pyjamas for Matilda

 Please be aware of a moving slideshow in this post, take care if you are photo phobic. 

Oh, Lisette pyjamas, how do I love thee?

I do enjoy piping so I love sewing fancy pyjamas.

When you think about the amount of time we spend in pyjamas they are completely worth the time is takes to make them.

Tilly needed new japamas for Show camp. On a shopping trip in Mt Gambier I popped into Lincraft and, serendipitously, they were having a huge sale. I picked up this brown, irregular dotted flannelette for $3/m. I purchased 5 metres which enabled me to cut a full set of long sleeved/legged pjs plus a bonus pair of shorts.

This fabric is bonkers, it is so thick and soft. Think the Amy Butler flannelette of past, soft.

Originally we were going to do black piping but a last minute swop to white pleased everyone.

Once again, I piped every seam that I could pipe.

As usual, I neatened the back yoke and seat seam before adding the piping other wise it is an uneven sew.

I also interface the cuffs, facings and pocket tops as well as stitching down the front facings. It keeps it neater after laundering.

I do like to enclose the cuff seams too, topstitching from the right side.

Job worth doing and all that!

We do have to shorten the legs for us wee Kellers but that is not a hard fix.

Such a nice pattern and a super sew.

Thank you for reading xx Nicole
