Just in time for Christmas, I made pajamas for my kids – because that is what us sewists are supposed to do at Christmas time, yes? ;-). And then, because my kids insisted on wearing them immediately and I failed to photograph them, they of course: wet the bed the first night, spilled breakfast on them, had one clean while the others were in the wash, and endless winter gloom. You get the picture!
Finally one day I took some indoor pics of them, edited the pics, and then couldn’t work out if people would even be interested in pajamas now that Christmas was well and truly over.
…And then the entire world got quarantined and suddenly every day became pajama day.
With the launch of Frozen 2, my girls suddenly became interested in Frozen fabric again. My eldest demanded Frozen 2 pajamas and since she typically wears undies and a tank top to bed, I decided to make a long night dress rather than traditional two piece pj’s.
Ottobre Winter 6/2009 happened to be in my stash and includes a night dress and two piece PJ set. The dress is basically just a longer version of the pajama top (also in that magazine issue). It’s a super quick and easy sew with raglan sleeves with cuffs and neckline binding.
For my son, I’d been hoarding this Star Wars fabric (JoAnn remnant!) and paired it with black cotton lycra and white ribbing (which I ultimately ripped out from the neckline and replaced with cotton lycra because it was stretching out way too much). His were also really easy to make and were also a hit! Yay! He is totally obsessed with Lego these days so I was happy I could satisfy him with “not-Lego”.
Anyway, my kids are all loving their pajamas which are all getting a lot of day time workout right now!
Stay healthy friends! ❤
