Comfiest pjs!

Welcome to the comfiest pjs ever! The racer back means that the shoulder straps don't fall down and dig into my arm when I'm asleep.

I made a pair in double gauze which are really comfy, and a slightly fancier pair in satin.

One point to pay attention to is the top is cut on the bias! I forgot with the second pair and the size is a little snug. That's my error and nothing to do with the pattern!

Reef Camisole & Shirts Set

This pattern is beautiful with clear instructions.

I made this pyjama set out of an old duvet cover and some leftover lawn.

The pattern has some elements that are more taxing than a beginner one but it goes together really well. I made them over a few days in stages and my daughter loves them. They are pretty and comfortable.

You could easily make shorts and a cami top with appropriate fabric instead of pyjamas. A very versatile pattern.
