LOVE these pajamas, they're super chic so you can look fancy while being lazy. The online tutorial for the notched collar was a huge help, as were the tutorials about adding piping (which is a super sleek addition). It makes me wish I could just live in pajamas forever!
I have not had a chance to make this beautiful caftan,! I am in the process of moving and when this is over, I will get back to my sewing. Hope to make this for my summer wardrobe!
Super handige uitleg, heel gemakkelijke jurk om te maken. Het model is zoals voorgesteld heel gemakkelijk (+-2uur aan gewerkt) en comfortabel om te dragen. Super kleed, veel complimenten over gekregen en heel blij mee! Ik ga in de toekomst zeker nog patronen bestellen.
Yep, I’m obsessed with this pattern. I’ve made 3 pairs in the past month or so. Used the very helpful tutorials to make my own piping for 2 versions and to figure out the notched collar. I have plans to make 4 pairs of the shorts for my college-age nieces. The fit is awesome tho if like me, over 50, you might want to lengthen the shorts a bit. Feel very fancy lounging about!
I will definitely be making more pjs with this pattern. Love the fit and ability to lengthen or shorten. I lengthened the top and bottoms by 1 inch for my daughter who is 5’ 10” tall and they were perfect.
Overall fairly good instructions, and I’m having an experienced sewist help me decipher the pattern speak; picture of “view a” shows cuffed pants, but pattern for view a does not include the cuffs. I didn’t realize this until I got to the pant hemming instructions.
