Fashionably Late

Oh hello there! It's been forever, but here I am and I'm excited to share a new project! 

Back on April 28 my blog reading list was full of lovely ladies showing off their new pajamas for Karen's pajama party over on Did You Make That? Not wanting to miss out on the party fun, I got to work on my own pajama set. I would have joined in by making pajama pants, but didn't have enough fabric, so I made a tank and shorts instead. 

For the tank I used an old McCall's pattern that I bought secondhand some time ago, and for the shorts I used a pajama pattern from BurdaStyle. The fun cotton fabric I used was a great find by my mom. Someone in her neighborhood put some fabric out on the curb and she scooped it up for me. Nothing like free fabric!

My favorite part of these pajamas is the ric-rac trim! I've always been afraid to use it because I worried it would look tacky, but to my surprise, I quite like it! I think I'll have to try to use it more often.

  1. totally adorable! I love using ric-rac (and whatever crazy trims I can get my hands on) on baby/kid's clothes and pajamas. it can get a little weird on other items, but makes sewing a bit more fun. :)

    love the top variation on the far right too!

  2. These are so, so cute. I love that fabric and the trim is darling. You make the cutest jammies. I'm still dying over those tie-dye sets that you made forever ago.

  5. I love these too! I've always been a bit wary of ric-rac for 'grown-up' clothes - but this totally works. Cute!

  7. Very late to comment here (just catching up with my favourite blogs), but I have to say that these PJs are soooo cute! And what an amazing fabric find! The ricrac trim is soooo lovely!

  8. Those are adorable! I believe that fabric is an Alexander Henry print so that "free" fabric is high quality and was pretty expensive at one time. I've always loved that print. Lucky, lucky you!
