GLEEFUL LAKESIDE PJS





gleeful lakeside pjs-7199 I've been wanting to make up some of Grainline's Lakeside PJ's for awhile now. Mostly because I love everything she makes. Also because it is crazy muggy and hot in NYC right now and we don't have central air. Yuck. gleeful lakeside pjs-7201 When Caroline of Sew Caroline contacted me about trying out some of her new fabric from her Gleeful line I knew that this would be the perfect project. I hadn't ever worked with voile from Art Gallery Fabrics before, but I can honestly say that it's beautiful and soft and high quality. I wouldn't hesitate to buy voile from them again. gleeful lakeside pjs-7203 Like all of Grainline's patterns the Lakeside PJ's went together seamlessly. She has a really clever way of sewing the shorts together and attaching the tape. It's simple and fast to sew up and fit perfectly. My only regret is that I didn't take the time to make my own bias tape. It takes 7 yds of bias tape and I really didn't want to make it. Instead I bought some in the garment district hoping that it would be better quality, only to be disappointed. It is a beautiful color and I love the contrast, but it's not soft at all. These pjs will still get tons of wear, but next time - and there will be a next time - I will make my own bias tape for sure. It's definitely worth the effort. Take it from me. gleeful lakeside pjs-7208 * disclaimer - The fabric for this post was provided by Art Gallery Fabrics as part of the Gleeful Blog Hop.
