Most of the sewing I do is for Kallie. And if I do sew for myself its usually a test pattern that may not actually be may own style. It's just not that often that I sew something all for myself. Yesterday I finally sewed up some new jammies that I actually cut out a month or so ago but never got around to finishing. I'm so glad I did. There's just something so satisfying about wearing items you've made yourself.
The top pattern I used is the Boston Boatneck by Peek-a-Boo Patterns. The perfect combo of a raglan with the boat neckline that is my absolute favorite. The neck is a breeze when you use Wash Away Wonder Tape to stabilize the fabric and it keeps the fabric from going wavy on you. .
With a gentle curve at the bottom hem its perfect
For the bottoms I used the Yoga Mom Pants also by Peek-a-Boo Patterns. UGH, they are seriously just so stinking comfy! I swear I could live in them!! Yeah, I don't even know what else to say about them...Comfy just completely 100% describes them...
I wear the typical baggy PJ pants sometimes but I greatly prefer yoga pants. Not that I do a single bit of yoga. I tried it a couple years ago and it lasted a whopping 1 week I believe. I just feel so much frumpier in baggy pants and nobody likes feeling frumpy. These are fitted at the top but no where near as tight as leggings that make the nervous about every single flaw that they're screaming to the world and the hubby likes me in yoga pants. Who doesn't like getting compliments even when their completely comfy in their jammies. That's a Win-Win in my book.
The fabrics are both Cotton/Lycra knits form Raspberry Creeks CLUB line. They are so soft and a dream to sew with! And their prices are their custom designs can NOT be beat.
