252 Beach Pyjamas
The 252 Beach Pyjamas sewing pattern from Folkwear. Beach pyjamas, made of silk, linen, or cotton, often in bright, cubist-inspired prints, were the height of summer and resort fashion in the 1920s and 1930s. They were worn from the afternoon to the evening as a fashionable summer style. They generally consisted of wide-legged trousers and a jacket of matching fabric. Slightly more casual one-piece pyjamas for daytime wear sported decorative collars, bindings, or sashes, and were sometimes worn with coordinating bolero jackets.
This one-piece, sleeveless version features a full shawl collar that wraps in front and falls gracefully over the shoulders in back. The wide palazzo pants give the appearance of a skirt, and a contrasting or self-fabric sash ties around the waist. For daytime wear you may want a cool linen or cotton, and for evening a silk or rayon with nice drape.
