Pyjama Party

June 24, 2015

Pyjamas for Kids
Summer holidays are finished for Ms H and i’m not sure if they are a hit or not. I had very little sewing time but the kids enjoyed the unstructured time despite a very hot summer.
The last 2 weeks of the summer holidays are spent sewing pyjamas for the kids. Its actually Baby J who is in need of pyjamas as she outgrew all her sleep suits but its Ms H who got the better deal. Ms H appointed herself as my fabric shopping assistant and choose the fabric for herself and her sister.

Strawberry Pyjama Pants
Sew-Strawberry Pyjamas

Fabric: Polycotton strawberry print from cotton street.
Pattern: pattern O (wide leg pants) from Sew Chic Kids.
Size: Size 2
Notes:
This pattern makes excellent pyjama pants.
With no back pockets and with the front and back pattern pieces kind of merged together to get a single pattern piece before adding the seam allowances, its easy to cut and a super quick sew.
Its a bit tight in the back and is teeny bit short, so will upgrade to size 4 next time.
Being pink and full of strawberries means that it will be worn a lot.

Flower Power Pyjama set
SEW-Floral Top

Sew-Pink Flower Pyjamas

Fabric: Cotton flower print from cotton street.(very thin and light fabric but not much drape)
Pants Pattern: Pattern O from Sew Chic Kids.
Top Pattern: Pattern C with extended sleeves of Pattern T (Sew Chic Kids)
Size: Size 2 for top and Size 4 for pants.
Notes:
The sleeves are from pattern T, lengthened (seems i have to add more both in length and in width).
H said she likes short sleeves, so might hack them sometime in future.
I made the bias tape a bit wider and shorter due to general laziness.
Should enlarge the neck opening as her head barely squeezes in.

Sew-Ms H-Floral Pyjama Set
Mr A said its a lovely set but the fabric is a bit thin. Ms H likes the set a lot especially the top.

Toothy Karate Pyjama set
SEW-Brushy Pyjama Set

Fabric: Cotton fabric from cotton street (60″ wide)
Pattern: self drafted kimono style top, Sunny Day Shorts turned into pyjama pants.
Size: 9-12m bodice used for drafting the top, 12-18m for pants
Notes:
Kind of messed up with the top while drafting which i realised only after Ms J wore it. The sleeves are too long and the top itself is a bit short.
No more kimono tops, not because they are difficult to sew but dressing up a wiggly 10 month old baby in a kimono with ties is not for me.

Sew-Ms J-Brushy Pyjama Set
She does look like she is out of a chinese martial art movie…

I signed-up for this seasons KCW and finished Day1 and Day2 with lots of brainstorming and little sewing…. for some reason unless i complicate an easy pattern i cannot sew šŸ™‚

    All of these jammies are so cute! I think the lighter fabric will make them feel really comfortable to wear all night.
