Christmas is almost here! Can you believe how quickly this year has gone by?
Every year I promise myself a pair of matching PJs and this year, I finally did it.
I used Simplicity pattern 8803 and made a nice matching set. I used size M for the pants and size S for my top. Truth be told, I probably could’ve gone a size up in the top.
My fabric is from Minerva. It’s a quilting cotton fabric with a Scotty dog pattern. It really reminds me of something that you would see out of J. Crew (which I guess is why I’m so attracted to it).
The sewing pattern included a really nice piping detail. This is optional, but I’ve never done piping before –and it was actually really easy. I highly recommend getting a piping foot for this, but if you don’t have one you can also use a zipper foot. My piping foot is from Madam Sew, but I’m sure you can buy it from any manufacturer.
Overall, this was an easy project, and also very practical since I brought my PJs with me on Christmas vacation. I definitely will make another pair in the future. Maybe white or navy blue with complementary accents?
Happy Holidays! Xo
