I have been meaning to make Tana Lawn pyjamas for a while as I couldn’t imagine anything more luxurious and when I received an exciting delivery of Wild Flowers I knew it would be perfect for summer PJs. Being a one-directional pattern, this print is ideal as it runs perfectly down the front of the trousers – for this set I mixed Wild Flowers colour way A with colour way C.
I based my design on Tilly and the Buttons’ Margot Pyjama bottoms however added additional ‘button’ holes for the belt and elastic at the back for fit. I made this set simple as I wanted to simplify the clashing prints however if I made another set, I would be tempted to add turn ups in contrasting fabric or patch pockets.
For the top, I used a free PDF pattern from SewLoft – the Diana Cami. This camisole is designed for daywear however it has enough room in it that it’s perfect for PJs. I really like the french seams in this pattern and although it is a beginner’s pattern and very simple to make, it gives a professional finish that is perfect for nightwear as it is extremely comfy. I piped around the neckline, armholes and created the straps using homemade contrasting bias binding.
I am sure I will make a similar set of pyjamas again and with the basic pattern, there are so many possibilities. On my list are summer shorts, winter fleece, and endless combinations of Liberty prints.
And here they are in action – I had a visitor as part of the lounging test because if anyone knows how to lounge it’s cats.
