We needed some summery pajamas around here. So, with KCWC motivation, this was one of the projects I wanted to tackle.
Using the same McCalls M4643 I used for the littles' Christmas PJs, I made Little Boy some summery shorts. The t-shirt is a hand-me-down from Big Brother. These are super simple. One pattern piece, quick and done. I added zigzag stitches to the hem to jazz them up a bit:
I also like the stitch over the casing to keep the elastic from rolling.
For my girls I pulled out these lovely vintage pillowcases and made nightgowns. The nightgowns were from my great-grandma, and I think she embroidered and crocheted them.
The bodice is based on McCalls' 5744, used for pjs for Big Sis. I altered it a bit, and using Gingercakes' tutorial as a guide made a similar design for Baby. I had the fabric in my stash I used for the bias tape detail. Wasn't that pink pinstripe perfect?
My girls look a bit like little angels don't they (even if their mean mom makes them take a picture after just getting up)?
I'm still finishing up a few projects. My Baby decided to run a fever all day yesterday, and so not much happened. Thankfully it was a 24 hour bug because she woke up feeling fine today!
