Happy Wednesday sewing friends! I have the cutest pajamas to show off today! I am awfully lucky to have several really good thrift stores near my house. They sell some of the best vintage sewing patterns, sewing notions, sheets, and even boots! You never know the goodies you’ll find, which is most of the fun of thrift store shopping. It’s like a treasure hunt!
Well I snagged this sheet almost two years ago and finally found the perfect pattern to pair with it! Toni of Make it Perfect just released a new pajama pattern for kids. I don’t know if this just happens in my house, but pajamas are always needed here. Both kids are growing so quickly and always telling me their jams don’t fit!
I sewed Sweet Pea the Catnap Pyjamas (I love how pajamas is spelled differently in different countries!) in a size 10. I love it when sewing pattern designers make patterns in larger kid sizes. My almost 12 year old is getting so tall that she definitely needs the larger sizes.
I lengthened the top of the size 10 pajamas by one inch, and left the shorts as instructed. The instructions Toni put together for the pajamas are great, and the pattern came together easily! I’m just a little bit jealous I didn’t save this sheet to make myself some jams.
