Summer Pajamas!

I've been meaning to sew up these kimono style pajamas for Etame since winter.  Now, they are finished and I have to say, I love them!

I used an Oliver + S Pattern for the first time.  The directions were easy and made for a crisply finished product.  I will definitely go to these patterns in the future for kids clothes.

Etame seemed to enjoy modeling her new pajamas.  I used some fabric from my stash that I picked up a couple years ago on a trip to Philadelphia.  The garment district there is great, and was my first introduction to such stores where the fabric is crammed in a narrow small store, on long round bolts, and you have to ask for help to get anything down.  They climb all the way up to the ceiling for you to get down something if you think you may like it.  This fabric was a vintage print they had down in their basement. 

The pattern I bought at Bolt in Portland last year when visiting with my good friend Michelle.

I think she likes them!

Next up: curtains for my friend Carrie.  Then possibly more curtains for a neighbor friend.  Busy sewing!


  1. Love the pj's...great job! I love to sew, but can never find the time or motivation lately. I think if we buy a new home I'll try making curtains too...curious to see the curtains you make.

  2. What a cute pattern. I will have to look it up. And I am in love with that fabric. The whole thing is so cute.

  3. Very cute pajamas. The fabric is very...you!

  4. How cute! And what a cute model!
