New pyjamas at Christmas has become a bit of a tradition so I made a classic comfy pair for both of my daughters with plenty of growing room so they can get lots of use.
The whale fabric is supersoft organic cotton interlock by Birch Fabrics with a decent weight and not too tricky to sew (ie it doesn’t stretch out too much when hemming or tend to curl). The whale design has little hints of orangey pink colour for their mouths so I echoed that in the collars and cuffs with orange ribbing. The fabric is from new-to-me online shop Maud’s Fabric Finds which stocks lots of fabrics that are otherwise hard to find in the UK.
Along with Olu, from Needle and Ted, I’ll be sharing some makes from Maud’s range throughout the year. Find details of the lovely dress Olu made here.
From 2 metres of fabric I managed to cut 2 shirts and 1 pair of leggings but there wasn’t quite enough for the long legs of my older daughter so I used some plain jersey for the last pair of leggings.I’m not really a big fan of actual Christmas themed pyjamas so to me these happy whales made pretty perfect Christmas jimjams.
