Wear it Out!

Here it is again! Blouse pattern Simplicity 8523 being used as a pajama top. The dotted fabric is a cotton T-shirt knit. The top was cut horizontally above the bustline for a different look. A 1 1/2 inch strip of fabric was folded in half,  gathered, and added to the front neckline. Another strip of fabric was cut and added to the neckline to form a bias trimmed neckline. This was my way of eliminating the facings.

The gray top is made with rayon jersey knit fabric from Fabric Mart. It was embellished with some of the dotted fabric on the front panel, some of the gathered trim, and two gray bows.

The pants were traced from my purchased pajamas. I widen the legs a little more on the dotted pair. This gives me four interchangeable outfits. They are very comfy.

  2. They are very lovely pajamas- must make some just like them one day. I like the interchangeable aspects, which means you can vary your lounging look considerably. Nice early morning outfit as well!
