Still pyjama-ing

A summer set for the smallest girl:


Made with New Look 6641 again. Spawned from my indecision over whether or not I liked my dinosaur drawing for the applique. It grew on me. Now this set can be mixed with her winter set for these changeable spring nights.

A winter set for the biggest girl:


Same pattern. The pant fabric is from an old pair of my pj's with a torn seat. They were well loved so it's hard to see the egg print now, but they're still there if you look hard enough. That calls for an egg-related embellishment. How about our beloved dipping egg and soldiers?

Hannah loves them. I mean really loves them. Wouldn't-take-them-off loves them. So I love them too, even though the super soft knit was a [insert expletive] to sew. It was worth all the effort after all.

Thank you to Sew, Mama, Sew's Pyjama Party for the incentive to clothe two little girls in new jammies.

I adore these. And I am all about making some for my little guy.
I came across this european clothing site for kids. And I was like "no way, I can make this myself."
That's the plan.
