Fancy PJs with some skill required

A review of Closet Core Patterns Carolyn Pajamas

Reviewed by Belle Citadel on 23rd January, 2021

The Carolyn pyjamas are a wonderfully elegant pair of pyjamas, with tons of detailing and features. I made the shorts and short-sleeved shirt with piping. I’m not a massive sleepwear fan, but these are sized perfectly, with a great balance between comfort and attractive fit.

I made the 18 and the top fits great, with a lovely level of ease. The shorts are too low-rise for me and I would raise the rise by a couple of inches next time, but this is a pretty normal adjustment for me.

The only reason I gave the Carolyns 4 instead of 5 stars is that I found the collar and lapel construction rather tricky and thought the instructions needed to be beefed up a bit. I used the website tutorial at Closet Core Patterns, which helped, but still needed to look up other resources.

All the details and more pics are on my blog here if you’re interested. 🙂
