Sweet cotton pyjamas!

Sweet blue pyjamas ~ OTD

Sometimes Im so busy sewing things for other people and doing repairs on clothes, I run out of time to make clothes for my own kids.

I decided to spend some time making my eldest daughter some pyjamas. Where we live is quite temperate and so I decided to make long-sleeved and long-armed cotton pyjamas.

I used this old pattern I found at an opp shop recently.

Simplicity pattern 8325

 

I thought I would make the girls’ version, thinking it had a yoke. Nope! It is actually a giant collar! So I didn’t use the collar; instead adding lace.

Lacy sleeve cuffs <3

The sleeve cuffs are probably my favourite 🙂

Snap fastening on pyjamas

 

I loved making these pyjamas. Cutting them out well, pressing everything as I was making it, overlocking, putting in the lace..  They came out looking professional, and I feel assured that they will easily last both of my daughters because of the high quality fabric.
