Pajamas, Part 2 - All finished!

I am all finished with the pajamas I posted about in my last post.  They turned out super cute and the fit is pretty good!  As I finished these on Thursday (but was lazy in posting about it), it counts for Sew and Tell so I am going to post my linky over there!

PJs 1


The pants are a little big around the waist, so I know next time I'll just use a little bit shorter elastic to tighten it up a bit.  Also, just as I suspected, the velcro on the shoulders is very bulky.  And my daughter wants to grab them and rip it open.  So next go around, if there is one, I will do a button on each shoulder instead.

But overall I think they turned out quite nice. As I mentioned, I made the size 1, although my daughter is a size 18-24 months/2T.  So the sizing is definitely off.  Just know it runs big.

PJs 2

But I'm very pleased with myself, given the fact that this is really my first finished garment that is wearable. 

I already ordered some more flannel from Joann's (did I mention that already?), including a Christmas print that I'm going to use to make matching pajama pants for me, my husband, and my daughter, for us to wear on Christmas morning.  Dorky yes, I know, but I think it'll be cute!

Great fabric. I am wanting to make jammies for my girls so I am going to check out your previous blog entry to see if you mention the pattern.

Those came out great and I love the fabric to. :o)

(That is not dorky because it's a family tradition in my house to have matching pj's for Christmas.)
