Weekend project: Striped Pajamas

I started working on Colette's free mini bloomers pattern Thursday during Runway. My material is a thrifted yellow and white striped bed sheet (99 cents!!)Decided to finish the shorts last night, and they are SUPER cute, but SUPER skimpy...

...So I made a fun babydoll top based on a design of my own to go with. All together I am really pleased with my new pajamas!

Hmmmm, what next???


  1. Thanks, Laura! I'm new to the blogging (and sewing) world, so I really appreciate it!

  2. Oh. My. That is the most darling set of jammies I've seen in a long while! I downloaded the pattern but haven't made it up yet. I think my daughter and I need some new pjs....

  3. Thanks, Heather! They're super comfy too! I substituted elastic for ribbon in the legs so I wouldn't have to worry about them coming untied all the time. Also, the rise in the bloomers is really low (REALLY low, as in, I couldn't take a photo without the top on)! I'm going to make these again (I think they'll make darling gifts for my girlfriends), but I'll add a little length to the crotch this time!
