I love pyjamas. I’m one of those people that get home from work and change into their pyjamas as soon as possible, before dinner, whatever. I have about 20 pairs on the go at any one time and my favourite moment of the YEAR (yes that’s right – the YEAR) is Christmas Eve when my mum gives me a new pair of pyjamas to slip into – it’s the best feeling in the world and the fact that I’m not a child anymore and actually a grown woman of 33 doesn’t matter one jot. I love pyjamas.
So anyway… I’m amazed I haven’t got round to making these before.
I used the gorgeous Japanese cherry blossom and asanoha stars fabric from Fabric Tales. It’s incredibly soft – almost like brushed cotton. I traced around an existing pair of jammy bottoms as described in this excellent tutorial from instructables.com.
They look massive in this picture don’t they?! It was fairly easy sewing them together although it was my first elasticated waist and it was a bit bulky first time round, so I unpicked it and did it again, with better results.
I love the trim – it was only £1 a metre from John Lewis. Everyone needs a bit of pompom action at bedtime don’t they?
Is there anything nicer than slipping into new self-made pyjamas? Nighty night.
