In a slight departure from my usual projects, I’ve decided to make my first pair of pyjamas. They’re easy, adorable, and I hope to be whipping up numerous pairs as xmas gifts. Is £2.76 too cheap for an xmas present? I’ll supplement them with something. Or I could buy some fancier fabric.
Anyway, in addition to your fabric (I suggest a cotton or polycotton), you’ll need a piece of elastic, and if you like, some lace or trim to go around the edge. This part is totally optional, and if you don’t fancy it you can just do a little rolled hem around the edges. However, if you think you’ll end up making more than one pair of PJs, I discovered that you can pick up nearly 10 metres of lacey trim for 99p off Ebay. It’s from abroad so may take a while to arrive, but I think it’s a savvy investment.
If you’re too shy to make something and wear it with pride out and about the following day, this project will give you good practice on a couple of techniques, and will ease you in gently to wearing your own creations. Let me know how it goes!
