Pajama Party

Nice pajamas have been on my to-sew list approximately forever, but somehow I am only now getting around to them.  Our family summer vacation will be at a resort where I am fairly certain that, at least once, I will wind up bringing the kids to breakfast while feeling a little rough from the previous night.  I’m thinking that if I have nice pajamas, I can just wear them to breakfast and change later.

The pattern is from an older Burdastyle.  It was definitely a November issue.  November 09 perhaps?

The top is constructed like it has a front opening, then sewn shut as the final step.  You put it on as a pullover.  This is brilliant.  I’m  pretty sure I would not want to sleep with buttons down my front anyway.  The sample garment in the magazine has the stitching visible on the outside, but it was easy enough to just sew the right front facing to the left front, so you can’t see the stitching from the outside.

The fabric is medium weight navy linen, and the trim is silk charmeuse.  It’s not actual piping, because I could not find my cording.  I know I have some somewhere.  I’ll buy more when I get a chance.  Anyway, the trim is just a bias tube that I caught in the seam.  It looks good enough.
