Unisex Child's Teens' and Adults' Pajamas
Child XS-XL and Adult XS-XL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I don't generally look at them except for cutting out the pattern - and I wish I had bought more yardage to have more layout-flexibility with the fabric's pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Got the Jammies I wanted.
100% cotton from JoAnn's (on sale from $7.99/yd) but later found it on Hancock's site for $4.79/yd. Go figure.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened all parts by an inch (as I'm 5'2") and I rounded off the collar to better accomodate the piping I used. Also, the pattern had the cuffs laid out perpendicular to the sleeves and legs - which would look great with stripes - but not so well with a deliberate vertical print. Buy extra yardage if you want options. I had to sacrifice the pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Most definitely - great gift idea for teens or something, too. I don't normally wear jammies, but it's nice to have a pair for travel and such.
I made these on short notice for a Pajama Party theme night at a bar that I was called in to host karaoke. I figured the hostess should be stylin'. The bar is pretty rockin' so I chose a fabric that I probably wouldn't normally choose for myself. I added the lime green piping to set it off. I rec'd a lot of compliments throughout the night, but it's definitely not cost effective. With the fabric, buttons, piping and elastic (had interfacing on hand), it cost over $40. Obviously I could have bought some nice jammies for that price. But I wanted to stand out - and I definitely did.
