I really needed a quick make after making up so many Sutton Blouses and doing the sewalong so I decided to make some pjs up for my kids with some fabric from my stash. I know that a lot of people like to make pajamas for their kids around the holidays so I thought I would share in case it helps anyone out with theirs.
Both of the main fabrics are from Art Gallery Fabrics. I’ve said it before and I will say it again that I really love their knits for kids stuff. They have some really fun prints, but most importantly I just feel like the weight of the fabric is just right, especially for kid clothing. It holds it’s shape well which makes it easier to sew. It’s a good medium weight which is good for lots of washings and abuse from my two kiddos. The navy rib knit for the cuffs and neckband was from Fabric.com. It’s much thinner, but it worked well.
For the top of the pjs I used the flashback skinny tee from Made by Rae. I have used that pattern so many times. It’s just a great basic and perfect for a simply pajama outfit. I followed the pattern exactly with the 2 inch cuff option and just did a simple zigzag stitch for the turned up hem. Super simple and fast.
For the bottoms I traced a pair of leggings for both of them. Pretty simple to do, but if you don’t feel confident there are tons of free patterns online for leggings. I did a 2 inch cuff on the bottom and a 1 inch elastic for the waistband.
How about you guys? Do you make new pjs every year for yourself or kids? Do you have a go to pattern? I’m still looking for a good nightgown pattern for my daughter if anyone knows of one.
