PJ Party: The Sleepover Pajamas
I am officially sewing again! Our house is settled enough to justify some quality time with my sewing machine. I’ve not really sewn in the last month, so it is a very welcome change in my routine.
Alas, the majority of what I am sewing can’t be shared for fear of a recipient seeing a Christmas gift early!
Instead, I’ll share a project from October. Our son, Graham, turned two and I made him a pair of Sleepover Pajamas from Oliver + S as a gift. I used the Children at Play fabric from Sarah Jane of Michael Miller Fabrics. (fabric found at Fat Quarter Shop) The bicycle print is flannel and the trim is regular quilting cotton. The jammies are at once sweet and cuddly and very “boy.”
The best thing about the pattern (other than the fact that it is so well written and has so many professional finishes) is that the cuffs at the sleeves and pant legs can be let out and folded down by clipping one little stitch. The photo above is from mid-October and Graham has gone on a growing binge lately. It’s time to snip those threads already!
The Sleepover Pajamas pattern offers an option for adding a ruffle at the collar and cuffs, perfect for a little girl. I’m going to be spending part of the weekend working on a set of PJs from the pattern for both kids to wear on Christmas Eve.
Those, I could probably show you before Christmas. I’m pretty sure you won’t tell my kids.
