Seeing as the weather is wet and gloomy I think I'll stay in my pyjamas all day! Thanks to Karen who has created the most exciting vibe for a sew along, means we all should be in our pyjamas today, and what's better is that they are all shiny new, hand made lovelies!!!
My own pyjamas are a from two different patterns. The top I have actually already made four other versions for the OWOP project so no. five was easy! And like the pattern said so where the bottoms, although if you had a wider bottom I don't think you would have that much space!
When they where finished I felt so pleased, I really took my time and made nice seams and ect ect and the end result is something I love, far to often I have to learn to love what I make. So so excited we had a really fun photo shoot!
Everyone seemed to get very excited about my new pj's. The fabric is a light weight cotton, which had a previous life of a duvet cover. I really like the way it had a more intense pattern at the bottom of the legs.
And this is the book I'm reading, it's wonderful! I recommend it. I am also on Good reads should any of you want to join me and become friends http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/8180872-charlotte I always have a few reference books on the go too, this is the latest.
So thanks to Karen I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and have a pair of pyjamas which as long been on my to do list! I'm so impressed that I'm thinking of starting to make a few more pairs up as presents. Will also be showing this off with Justine at http://www.sewcountrychick.com/2012/04/sew-7-tell-saturday-april-28-2012.html
