Top 10 Pyjama Indie Sewing Patterns

Sewing your own pyjamas may seen like a self indulgent sew but if you wear pjs at night you are in them for over eight hours! Let me tell you there is nothing nice than a handmade pair. They also make wonderful presents for friends and family so if you wanted to get ahead with Christmas presents (I know I’m sorry I mentioned the C word) then there are some fantastic options in here. We’ve also included a couple of dressing gowns too if you wanted to really pimp your loungewear.

Agnes Pyjama set from Paper Theory:

The Agnes pyjama set is a fantastic option if you wanted to make a classic pair of pjs that have a simple construction. The pattern comes with a short and trouser option and an elasticated waist. The top has grown on sleeves, patch pockets and a designed to be a loose fit. We think these would be great for confident beginner.

Pipit Loungewear Set from Common Stitch:

The pipit loungewear set has been a firm favourite within the sewing community and we can see why. The pattern features a button up v neck front and flared sleeves. This makes it perfect if you wriggle around in your sleep! The top flairs from the underarm seam and the shorts are loose fitting with an elasticated waist. A great sewing pattern for warmer weather.

The bottoms are elasticated at the back of the trouser and have a drawstring at the front. Again choose between leg length on these.
