Tilly and the Buttons
Buy the Fifi Pyjamas sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons. Make your own delicate camisole and shorts set – lovely for lounging in at home or wearing to bed. The camisole is cut on the bias to create a flowing shape, with soft pleated cups, a gently shaped princess seam back and bias binding straps. The shorts have a narrow stitched-in elastic waistband and cheeky curved hems. Oh là là!
A treat for stitchers looking to advance their skills, the instructions will walk you through techniques for sewing bias cut fabric, creating binding and finishing the insides with impressive French seams. Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Fifi includes jargon-busting instructions, handy sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – helping you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
Suggested fabrics: Lightweight drapey fabrics that feel nice against the skin, such as cotton lawn, voile, viscose (rayon) or silk satin. Best to avoid directional prints as the camisole is cut on the bias and the shorts on the straight grain.
