You say Ikea quilt backing, I say.....

.....new pyjamas!

I have had this top in my head for some time, yesterday I took the bull by the horns and got it sewn up. Trouble is the bull decided it needed matching pj trousers too!


new pyjamas!r
(Spot the photo bombing toddler!)

So now I have lovely breezy new summer pj's in text print with neon pink trim, perfect!

The top is the Tiny Pocket Tank from Grainline studio and the trousers are the free Simplicity 9871 which Kerry will be teaching at FQ Retreat next month. Both are pretty simple to sew up, great for beginners, so what are you waiting for? I want to see matching jammie buddies at FQR!

Oh and if you see me wearing the top during the day, I am TOTALLY not wearing my pj top in public, it was always intended to be a daytime wear, its just those jammie bottoms crashed the party and made it into a set!

They are so, so cool!

Charlotte said...

that's ACE! I have about a million metres of that fabric and never thought to make clothes with it. Clearly I am slightly, umm, challenged.

Very cool Emily! But your selvedge skirt and glasses top take some beating! Wonder what you will wear this time?

I just saw Sarah's comment above as I was scrolling down and can't stop laughing. You must wear your top to the FQR!

I have ikea fabric for my jarmie bottoms in Kerry's class too, although not this print. I have about 5 metres of it, so now you've got me wanting to make a matching top too!!!

Just super! They're fab.

I wish more people made clothes in text prints! These are adorable and elegant at the same time. What's the fabric made of?

If you're up for joining, I'd love to see these in the sewing section of Kollabora, the online crafters' community. I'm looking for pajama ideas appropriate to this stifling weather, but there haven't been many such projects over there recently for some reason.
