|Pattern Description: |
Children's sleepwear, boys or girls, several options
3-6 and 7-14. I used the 3-6, making size 3. I am fairly confident this will fit the 3 year old GD, based on her measurements from several weeks back.
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 honestly did not use them very much.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I struggled with the collar, and the front facings ended up sort of hanging loose at the shoulders. I did end up topstitching the facings down all the way. I think if I make it again, I will either leave off the collar completely (create my own back neckline facing) or add a back neckline facing even with the collar, and it would be easier for a clean-looking finish there. I did end up hand-sewing the collar on the inside of the neckline. I don't mind the hand-sewing, but seems that there must be a better way and/or I need more practice with collars on size 3 garments.
A cotton seersucker from the stash, which washed to a soft touch. The plaid was an odd scale and not symmetrical, so it seemed like better to use for PJs. About 20" of 3/4" nonroll elastic, a smidgeon of bias tape to mark the back of the pants.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I took out about and inch or so in length of the shirt and front facings at the foldlines. For the pants, I ended up cutting off a couple inches, then hemming another 1.25".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would sew it again, and also recommend it.
I was disappointed with my results on the collar, and plaid-matching across the front. But the side seams and facing seams of the shirt are matched very well, as are the pants seams.
