I don't know about you, but my pj's are not very cute. In fact, my pj drawer is basically a graveyard for old clothes that are too far gone to be worn in public. The embarrassing, stained, over washed clothes that I love too much to let go, eventually make their way into my pj drawer and, basically, that is all I have in there at this point. Nothing cute. Nothing I want to even wear outside to take the dog out to do her duty. It is finally time for me to do something about this.
I have lots of great fabric my mother-in-law gave me that is light weight and screams comfy, cute pj fabric. You know how I feel about this by now … when fabric talks to me … I listen!
I decided to use a grey floral and a peach lining fabric.
I wanted to make a cute button up top, so I pulled out one of my dress patterns.
I have used this pattern once before to make my 4th of July Dress. I figured I could use the bodice pattern and just hem the bottom to make it into a top.
For the pj pants, I pulled out this new pattern I recently got, but haven't yet used.
I really like this pattern. I had to take a lot off the top of the pant to make them fit correctly and I omitted the pockets because I didn't have enough of the fabric to make them. I love the way they look and fit, though, and see a lot of these in my future.
Here is the finished product:
The pants are so comfy! The bodice might even be a little too cute for pj's.
I love the cute little vintage buttons :)
The print is super cute on the pants, too.
Now I can I look less like a homeless person and far more presentable when I go outside in my pj's on my lazy, lounge days.
I think I see one of these days in my very near future.
Gotta wear in them jammies!
