Do you like your PJs fancy or plain? Loose or snug? Long or short? Perhaps you prefer a onesie? Or don’t much care!
JJ is very particular about his sleepwear and there is a distinct lack of suitable RTW options here, so a few months ago the hunt was on for a home made option. After a few trials (some hilariously too tight in all the wrong places) we found the perfect pattern and this is it, dating from 1966 no less.
They were lovely to sew, coming together quickly with no alternations needed and to date I have made four pairs all in a crisp but soft cotton, gentle elastic and french seams (no scratchy serged finishes please).
What a nice way to dust off the sewing machine – the hum of the machine, the smell of steam and freshly pressed cotton.
