Since it’s a holiday week and all I can think of is cozy and comfy, I thought I’d share these lawn pajamas that I made earlier this year. I’ve been LOVING them, and as we move into cooler temps it might be time to make another version–maybe with long sleeves/pants and out of flannel…?
I’ve made several pajama sets and a bunch of separates that I wear as pajamas, but this is my favorite “pajama pattern” so far. It’s really wonderful. The pattern is a free (!!) from The Assembly Line, and it all comes together quickly and easily. The construction is a fairly simple, drop-shouldered top and elastic shorts with pockets. There are many things I love about the PJs, but they fit really well and came together so easily.
One thing I love about following patterns is learning new things. My favorite patterns and pattern designers are the ones that show me new ways to do stuff. That’s definitely the case here. I loved how the pattern is written, and especially how the hemming and elastic band channel is handled. I found it to be not-fussy and super smart. It made things easier and a bit speedier, and I’ve been employing this approach for other garments since then. I haven’t made any of their other patterns, but after making these, I’m very inclined to trying more of them. They have such cute styles!
As for the fabric, I used a novelty lawn from Bunny’s (sadly closed now). The fabric is delightful and so comfortable. The lawn has made it perfectly airy and light for the summer. I’ve been trying to use some of the more-precious fabric in my stash, and this was the perfect project for doing so.
