Completed Project: New Look 6932 Children’s Pyjamas
More pyjamas? You betcha! This time for Little Tweedie – and it isn’t the first time I’ve used this pattern – but still worth a quick show and tell.
Here are the previous versions I’ve made using this basic pattern:
The floral and frilly ones have had so much wear this past year, and have been admired by all who have seen them. They are so pretty, and the small floral print gives them a very vintagey feel, so I absolutely had to make a new pair in the next size up. Cue more floral fabric…
The only thing I totally forgot to do this time was to cut leg ruffles for the trousers. I didn’t notice until I began sewing, by which time the leftover fabric had been discarded. Slightly disappointing, but thankfully it was only a decorative feature rather than a key component!
Judging by how much the previous pairs got worn this year, I feel these will be a great success, and will get made again and again as she gets older. Next time, I’m going to use a different print – perhaps polka dots or stars – for a bit of variety.
This pattern has already been so useful and will continue to be so as I go on to have a baby boy! I like the fact it come with patterns for a jersey tshirt, and the fact that you can make either top long or short sleeved, or the pyjama bottoms long or short. Plus, the pyjama bottoms are extremely quick and easy to sew and would make great gifts. Not that I’ve got round to that yet…
