It is Valentines Day, so I thought it would be fun to sew up some new cute pjs for the occasion. I’ve been wanting to try out the Ogden cami as a pj top for a long time and so this seemed like the perfect excuse. I just needed to locate a cute bottom that I could pair it with.
After doing some digging around I decided to try out the Lexi boxers from Evie la Luve. Knowing that Hannah has a whole line of lingerie sewing patterns, I was pretty sure that the Lexi boxers would be the right style and I was right. They were cut and sewn within an hour and turned out great. I realized after cutting them out that I was supposed to cut them on the bias. Ooops. But luckily the fit was still good. I opted to omit the lace trim which did make the hemming a bit more tedious, but nothing crazy and I also did not add the buttons or bow to center front. They are short, but in the perfectly appropriate for night time kind of way.
I sewed these pjs up in the petals fabric from Workroom Social that I had leftover. The fabric is so great. Nice drape, but still not see through, and compared to my other rayon fabrics, this one hardly wrinkles at all. I have some black sandwashed rayon set aside for another pair once I get the time. And this time I won’t forget to cut the shorts on the bias.
