I won this fabric as a contestant in the Super Online Sewing Match II hosted by Sew Mama Sew last summer. I ended up being a simi-finalist. You can see my entries herehere, and here. For the last entry, we had to make Carolyn Pajamas by Coset Case Files. Out of the 4 remaining contestants, I was eliminated in this round. I was disappointed of course, but I was proud to have made it that far.

I chose this cotton knit fabric with the abstract giraffe design with one of my coupons. With this lovely soft fabric, I made a pair of Carolyn pajama bottoms. There wasn’t enough fabric for the top, so I purchasedd a couple of RTW soft tee’s to go with them.

My daughter is a petite five foot two each person, so I made a few alterations to the size 8 pattern. I shortened it by about 2 inches on the lengthen/shorten line and also shortened about 3/4 inch above the crotch.
