Lately, I have been doing a lot of sewing for my Falafel. For one, it takes a lot less fabric to sew for her, than anyone else in our family. The Bee, though has noticed this, and made a request that I sew her up some pajamas. How could I refuse my almost adult daughter?!Especially when I really love sewing for her too.
This is one of the most straightforward, easiest patterns EVER! Like all Blank Slate patterns, this one was spot on with sizing. I didn’t even muslin.
After seeing the cozy fleece jammies I made for Falafel, my Bee wanted some of her own. It was no problem at all to work with the fleece. I did embellish the pattern just slightly by adding rib knit cuffs (there are only cuffs on the short sleeves option), and because these are pajamas, and I wanted the neckline a little higher, I sewed on the rib knit neckline a little different. I folded the tube in half width wise and sewed the raw edges to the neckline. Done.
For the pants portion, I just took a pair of knit pants that fit her, and used them as a pattern.
The fleece doesn’t fray, so no hemming required!
This was the perfect quick project that allowed me to sew something practical for my 17 year old, while not breaking the bank.
The best part is, she LOVES these. Especially the shirt. She wore it to bed atfer we photographed it, and then to her Archery tournament the next day. She asked me to make her another. THAT right there, is proof it’s a winner.
