Carolyn Pyjamas

p9181601.jpg
There’s something really inviting about nice sleepwear although I rarely use them for sleeping. Add some piping and nice fabric and I can’t resist to sew up a pair.

I made a set of Carolyn Pyjamas view C in a flanell fabric when the pattern had just come out. Ever since I wanted to make another pair with more piping and long pants. I opted for the short sleeved version again though as I thought it would be more practical. This set turned out pretty summery though so I might have to sew a pair of matching shorts in the future.

I really like this pattern but if I make the long pants again I would adjust them so they aren’t so wide at the bottom.

Pattern: Carolyn Pyjamas (Pajamas) by Closet Case Patterns
Fabric: Quilting weight cotton Notting Hill by Gütermann

My Minoru is Fantastic

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Wow, this is a long time coming. I finished this coat in the fall of 2015. We shot the pictures a few months later but somehow I didn’t get to posting because it felt as though I had to write so much about this project.

Since I made this coat I have been wearing it pretty much everyday in the colder months. To be honest I’ll probably not wear it as much next winter since most of the buttons have fallen out and it could use a wash (but the lining makes it unwashable).

Since it’s been a while I’ll just shortly write about it.

Pattern: Minoru Jacked by Sewaholic

Adjustments: Followed this great guide by Sallie Oh for removing the gathers.

Added a front button placket.

Added a removable hood.

Added furry lining to the body and quilted lining fabric to the arms.

Added rib knit to the lining arms.

Added bellow pockets.

Added a drawstring at the waist instead of elastic.

Shell Fabric: Dralon (water resistant with teflon) from Stof & Stil

Main lining: I think it was this fake fur

Arm lining: Quilted lining fabric
