I joined a pj sew-a-long on the American Thanksgiving weekend. These pyjamas are a long time coming. I had problems with the evil pattern book. But you can always count on Kwik Sew to make a dependable pattern. I love Kwik Sew. It took longer to drive out of town to buy the pattern then it did to sew the pattern.
For the girls, I used 2811. I made two pairs but I have a photo of one. Because it is such a basic pattern I thought that I should add something. I shortened the length and added white pom-pom trim.
My oldest daughter loved them so much she is either wearing them or washing them. They do look cool as I made them from a vintage sheet. It says "Sock It To Me" and other Laugh In lines. She has always had a retro vibe and started wearing vintage clothes in junior high.
I was planning on making matching Christmas pyjamas for the family but---. I have the fabric and the patterns ready for next year.
I owed my daughter's boyfriend a Christmas gift. I had planned this for awhile but was too sick to sew. His favourite car is a 1962 Corvette. I searched everywhere and found the flannel. I used Kwik sew 2257 to make the pyjama pant. They are triple stitched. The waistband is elastic and cording.
More sewing soon!
Thanks for dropping by.
