Pattern Sizing: Sizes T1-T2-T3-T4; I made a Size T3.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Kwik Sew (KS) has great instructions when it comes to working with knits. I wish the Big 4 would adopt their construction order, written directions and photos. Just one small example: Why would you sew a sleeve in the round when you can sew it in the flat?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pattern had standard directions written the same as most KS patterns. I found myself not even referring to them at all. I'm actually starting to believe in this phenomenon of not looking at the directions.
Fabric Used: Cotton Interlock purchased from a seller in the SEWITSFORSALE Yahoo group. The 100% cotton ribbing was purchased from Jo-Ann's back in 2001 when they still carried good quality ribbing. I'm not a big fan of the ribbing they carry now.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. I sewed up the pattern as-is for my hairdresser's son.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I know I will be using this pattern again. Although this is an OOP KS pattern, I would recommend anyone interested in buying a copy check the usual online websites.
Conclusion: This pattern is a good one to use to learn to sew with knits. Ribbing application is very common in T-shirts and there is ample opportunity to learn how when making these pajamas.
Simple and cute pattern for a little boy or girl. Winter pajamas could be converted into summer pajamas by shortening the arms and legs when warm weather rolls around. Use View C pattern pieces for proper length when doing this.
