2014 sewing continued.....
Some time last year I decided to pull out my bag of liberty scraps and sew up a few decent pairs of PJ pants. Included in the bag was the piece I used to make these. It wasn't actually a scrap but an internet purchase that 'wasn't really me'. I'm not one for small florally prints really. I also haven't been able to step into the world of collared button-ups, even though they look fabulous on everyone else.
I traced these pants off an extremely old pair of elasticised-waisted linen pants from Country Road. I drafted the pockets myself. I bound the pockets in black satin silk. I also threaded a black satin ribbon through the waistband.
I've been super happy with this make. They're the sort of thing you could get caught wearing at 2pm by a surprise visitor and not feel embarrassed. I've worn them heaps already.
I also made two additional PJs in shorts-length, actually from the scraps as planned. I'm yet to photograph these as they're always on rotation in the wash or under my pillow. One day!
Sweet dreams. ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz
