Why hello there! why don’t you snuggle into that big pink velvet covered couch just over there under the dimly lit lampshade with the tassels hanging from the trim, here is your cup of peppermint tea to sip on while I tell you all about these cute little pyjamas I made for this weeks Sew Weekly theme appropriately titled, ‘loungewear’.
These cute little Pj’s were cut and sewn from Simplicity pattern 6278 using a gorgeous cotton candy pink fabric with a printed chain of hearts pattern running throughout, perfect bedtime print don’t you think? she has a peter pan collar which ties up with a cute little black bow and a row of tiny matte black buttons down the front. The bloomers have an elastic waist and thinner elastic around the bottoms which of course forms a gathered frill for added sleepytime cuteness. They’re perfect for lounging about in I’d even answer to the complete stranger knocking at my front door asking for a charity donation in them as long as I was wearing my heels and a full face of makeup of course. I’d even put on a voice and all… Oh Daaarrrling of cooourrssse I can help your cause…
Loungewear? that’s a funny name for it, loungewear! for lounging about in. Who has time to lounge about anymore? I can’t even sit and watch a movie without thinking I’m wasting precious time, I’m always thinking I could be doing something a lot more interesting with my time, but in saying that I’m wearing them now so I guess I’m ‘lounging’.Woohoo!
For this challenge I did contemplate on making a slinky silky slip which I’d find very comfortable and wearable, yes! but, I just couldn’t answer the front door in it, too revealing, and you know how I like to be generous with my charity donations and all, the last thing I want is for the person to drop the donation tin, that would be just too awkward, me having to fumble about helping pick up the coins and all, tragic. So you see, I was thinking of everyone involved before I settled on making this cute bedtime ensemble. Aren’t you lucky?
Yes there have been countless nights where I’ve woken up in my heels but that was when I was young and dangerous darlings. *coughs* now my heels are all packed neatly in boxes awaiting their perfectly sewn outfit.
That cute little book up there is the perfect bedtime companion or for just ‘lounging’, I’m a sucker for watercolours and illustrations ‘Tucked in’ by Meredith Gaston will have you lounging in no time.
Happy Sewing! have a great week and I’ll hopefully see your well rested self here next week.
