Just before I decided to join the dress challenge for the Indie Pattern Month on The Monthly Stitch, I had cut a pair of pyjama for my son. I bought the 11th Gear pattern by New Horizons Design, another US based company and a new to me. The pattern has got so many variations. I saved this project for the third week of the challenge since it would fit the category, sewing a US designed pattern in the UK!
I was planning to make the straight leg bottom but he decided he wanted pockets too… so I added the pockets.
The pyjama is of course an easy sew and the pattern is very good. The only change I made was to add cuffs at the bottom of the legs so that it would not move up his legs while he is in bed.
For the top, I used the straightforward long sleeves tee version.
Both are made from fabric I bought from Fabworks last year. Most stash busting which makes me feel so happy too!
And this was my first sewing clothes for my big boy! He is very happy with it and already wearing his new PJ tonight! Now to make some for his sisters….
