Growing in sewing

Lorraine Meets Margot in Pyjamas

I needed a pair of pyjamas for my summer trips and was inspired by the movie “The Help” (great movie BTW) and the sixties pyjamas in one of the scenes.

My local Stoff och Stil Store has a range of retro fabrics that I have been eyeing for a while and at my latest trip I found two cotton fabrics that I thought would work good together as a pyjamas.

20140718-204032.jpgI made the top out of my Lorraine pattern, taking in the sides a bit and adding a pleat in the back instead of gathering. For the armholes I used self made bias tape.

20140718-204326.jpgFor the bottoms I used Tilly Walnes’ “Margot” pattern from her book “Love at First Stitch“. I shortened them, added an elastic in the waist and drawstrings at the calves. I’m planning to write more about Tillys book after I have tried out more patterns.

I love to be creative, especially to sew, finding new patterns and fabrics is always rewarding and fun. I've grown up with the craft, my mother is a quilt-shop owner and her love for sewing has rubbed off on me.
