I wrote this project for Sewing World magazine it was published last year. I was very chuffed that it made the front cover of the magazine too!
The very pretty fabric was sponsored by Makower. I knew what the fabric looked like before I started designing these pyjamas. The plan included writing a project for a coordinating dressing gown for the following issue. It wasn’t difficult to be inspired by such a lovely print.
I am quite a fan of classic styling so decided to go for some classic touches like piping and covered buttons. I finished the waist of the bottoms with a sumptuous satin ribbon and included the piped detail near the hem of the trousers.
The flat peter pan collar gave the style a nod to eras past. Hopefully achieving stylish, comfortable pyjamas and an interesting project to sew.
As always I love to hear your comments and see pictures if you made this project, if you missed it and would like to make it you can buy back issues from the Sewing World website. Of course I would also be happy to help you make them in one of my sewing classes if you are Leicestershire based.
