Winter has well and truly reached Melbourne and Paige was in desperate need of some new pyjama pants.
I had to use this picture of Paige jumping off her bed - it cracks me up!
A quick rummage through the stash and I found a couple of pieces of knit fabric and a new t-shirt that I bought a couple of years ago. I used Butterick 5853 (so old it's not even listed on the website) for the pants - just one pattern piece so they were super quick. The t-shirt was a little bit short in the sleeves so I added some contrasting cuffs and to give my horse loving girl a bit of a thrill I added an appliqued bright pink horse too.
Then in a recent trip to the fabric shop I picked up some horse print flannelette - I couldn't use my one piece pattern as the narrow width and directional print made it impossible to fit so I pulled out Simplicity 3577.
Paige sat and watched me hem the pants so that she could put them on straight away! I love sewing pj pants - they're pretty much instant gratification and you know they're going to get plenty of wear. AND that's one more thing crossed off my list.
