The Pyjama Party, that is...
But hey, just a day late? That's akin to a miracle for me.
PJs are a funny thing, dear Readers. I sleep in the most ghastly things - old torn t-shirts, usually - the kind that you toss into the rag bag automatically. For me to pick new fabric and make myself a pair of PJs? - that seemed ultra luxurious.
In for a penny, in for a pound, I say! I picked out newish fabric - I'd bought this white and black polka-dot fabric at King's Textiles pretty recently. I'd originally had it earmarked for a blouse, but I threw caution out the window, and instead made a pair of PJs.
For a pattern, I used New Look 6523. I cut a size 12, and lengthened the pattern by 2 inches at the hem. I sort-of-followed Melissa's tutorial for elastic insertion.
The best part of making PJs? You can have a bit of fun taking photos.
The orchids on the night-stand are gorgeous, no? They are a birthday gift from my parents.
I'm still in the PJs, I can tell it is going to be a lazy, lazy Sunday. Perfect.
