Closet Core Carolyn Pyjamas – Now I know why this pattern is a best seller!

These PJ’s have been on my sewing radar for sometime, but I have to admit the illustration on the front has always put me off. Then I see someone wearing them on Instagram and I want to make them asap.

I made the shorts version (it was summer) and plan on making a brushed cotton full length set very soon.

A superb pattern, the cut is perfect and the instructions are easy to follow and well illustrated. My top tip, read them twice, slowly, before diving in!

My details

I sized up from a 12 to a 14, I like a comfy fit for my PJ’S. I made no other adjustments this time. But I will make my piping as fine as possible next time. I will also leave out the lapel interfacing. I don’t feel its needed on comfy pyjamas, especially if you want to sleep in them.

I did add the cutest little bow . . .
