...them bring summer pyjamas
and it being summer...
Having stocked up the little goddess' piggy piggy jam jam drawer for summer nights,
I have been procrastinating on making the boys' PJs.
As soon as it "has" to be done,
it becomes a chore.
And while making 4 pairs at once,
a few thread colour changes aside,
is a quicker process,
it smacks of production line
and that seems to kick in a persnickety little "boredom" gene.
The bottoms are from Favourite Things Little Jammies pattern
modified to a completely elasticised waist.
The top are from Kwik Sew 3234 pyjama pattern.
These are a slim top so I made a size 10 for my boys.
(one is 5 and he...shall we say, takes after his mother;
the 7 year old is a beanpole...they share the same waist measurement)
These are loose fitting but a good size and if they don't get trashed through stretching tops over their knees and playing "hey I have a great idea let's see who can pull and stretch whose pyjamas the most"
(as happened with last year's pairs)
they might get more than a year's wear.
Fabrics: plain knit is Stella. Various patterned knits from the stash.
Embroidery: both from embroidery library,
embroidered onto felt
then sewn onto the tops.
And *ahem* I might just have made one more pair for the little goddess.
