Very cute pajamas/muslin! You should definitely make it again!

Cute pajama top! I think that when you make the "real" version of this, if you use a stretchier poly-something knit, you'll also get more drape and some of that volume below the bust will hang better.

Have you lost weight? It looks like you have in these jammies. What a pretty color!

I did lose weight, but in NYC I think I gained it all back. :(

Cute top! I love that you used it as a pj test run, too!

Absolutely fabulous PJs. I have made some for everybody in the family but me! You have inspired me with those adorable bedtime couture! Great review and glad you are back!

What a cute PJ top! I would be tempted to wear it all the time. :) I bet the daywear version is going to be fantastic.

It turned out very cute on you. I never thought about using the pattern for a PJ top, but it's adorable. Love the fabric.

I like how this turned out, skimming but not too full. Can't wait to see the top.

Cute PJs! Nice alternative for the sunshine top.

Sherril, you probably walked off all the pizza you ate in NY! This looks great - and yes, you did buy a few fabrics that might work for the next version.

very nice. I thought it was the sunshine pattern.Beautiful job, i really like it.

All versions that I have seen here are more enticing than Butterickie's! That neckline looks fab on you! You convinced me to add this to my list!

very cute. I have this pattern and now will try this out.

I love that you use your muslins for PJs! I have this pattern, too, thanks for a great review, I really appreciate the information about fit.

Very attractive jammies. You should make more!

Thank you for reviewing this pattern, Sherril. I've looked at that pattern and thought it would look like a maternity top on me, but it doesn't have that look at all on you. It looks like there are more gathers in the drawing. So, maybe it would work on me. It doesn't look like a muslin in the picture. It looks very wearable in public. Cute fabric, too.

Dang it all! Every time you review a pattern, then I think I have to have it. :o) This is a GREAT top, and I would have never thoguht to make a PJ top out of it. Believe it or not, I've JUST been mulling over what I might use for PJs when I go to Galveston. Unfortunately, I can't buy Buttericks around here without traveling to Lincoln, which I don't have time for right now, but I might be able to find something similar in McCall's or Simplicity. Thanks for the inspiration. :o) You look great!

Cute and pretty. Very whimsical fabric. I like it! You look nice in it. :)

Very cute, as is everything you do. Slimming the bottom of the sleeve would give a sleeker look and the right flowing fabric. d

Thank you, thank you! I feel the same way about the neckline being too wide open, but hadn't decided how to fix it yet. Thank you for figuring it out for me, lol. I think it looks really cute on you. For myself I'm considering a light weight floral with contrast for summer. When I do an FBA on these gathered tops I have less "bust droop" if I move the FBA closer to the center front, or where the bust point will be when the top is gathered. I hope that made sense. Thanks for your informative review.

Ritzy looking top, Sherril! Great look on you! BTW: Did you have to alter more due to becoming more slender? You look fab!

Nancywin said...
Sherrill, this turned out well. Do you think the "swag" could be coming from narrowing the neckline? I don't see it in your pjs top. It does seem as if raising the CF might solve it. I like the contrast yoke you added to this - necessity the mother of invention and all that. Nice job.

Cute top. I especially love your PJ version! The color of your PJ version looks fantastic on you!

I like the contrast yoke! Really, I think you're being too hard on yourself with the swag--really, who in real life is going to notice that?

Sew4Fun said...
Lovely top! I particularly like the yoke in a different fabric. Sometimes these happy accidents are for the best. :)

Beautiful top. I like the contrast neckline. Now, you've got me thinking. I need to pull out this pattern. :)

Lovely! Your pajamas are cute and the final version looks fabulous! The yoke is a nice design touch.

I really like the newest version of this top. Great work!
