I don’t think there is such thing as Easter Pyjamas!? Well, this is the pattern I bought to make the girls Christmas nightgowns, but they were never made until now, oops! At the time, I also bought the fabric (a flannel), lace trim, elastic… but didn’t made it, though. So I bought a lighter fabric (flannel didn’t looked appropriate for this time of the year despite not being warm outside) and gave it a go 🙂
The pattern is Simplicity 1575 view C for both girls. I decided not to wait for next Christmas because I really love this pattern and only go until size 6, which is the girls’ age already, however later I realised that I will be able to use the patter for a couple more years, apparently!
For the fabric I’ve selected a cotton lawn with pink spots for Little Lady M and duck egg spots for Little Lady F.
For Little Lady M I made a size 4 and although she is a bit taller than the high in the chart, it turned out huge on her! Against M’s will, because she wanted her nightgown to be like the ones from the princesses, I had to shorten it a couple of inches and still is really long on her.
It’s big on her slim figure but she loved it so much, she kept asking me to take more pictures of her.
Knowing already that the sizes were a bit big, for Little Lady F. I also made a size 4, although she as the high of a size 5 and still is roomy on her. Despite not being a princess kind of girl (there are a few exceptions) she liked a lot her new “pyjama dress” as she called it.
This is F’s favourite book to help her fall asleep, because just like Sam sheep, she can’t (doesn’t want) go to sleep.
It was the first time I used a Simplicity pattern and was a little afraid of the instructions I must say, but despite not giving much information on the finishing I now feel a bit more confident and decided to try it and I’m glad I did it. I made everything as told in the instructions and just added the lace trim on the neck ruffle.
Have a great weekend 🙂
