Oh I'm so late posting these! They have been finished for over a week but what a busy social week we have had :) Our busy working summer is over and we have been enjoying life once again. The nights are now drawing in and the evenings are longer and cosy. So here I introduce my Pj's for these longer and cosy nights....
Despite loving these pyjamas, being pleased at how they turned out and how cosy and comfy they are to wear I can't deny that I didn't enjoy making these at all! And I have have no particular justifying reason for that statement either!
I started with such enthusiasm and cut out and made up the pyjama bottoms first. I took my time, did nice french seams and I even made some piping to insert on the lower legs (omitted the fly as I didn't think it needed it for the women's). But the piping for some reason gave me a few issues; which were resolved, but once the trousers were complete I'd suddenly lost interest in the making .
So although it was all with good intention to pipe the collar, pocket, sleeves and centre front seam, due to the now lack of interest, they never happened! So I made the top as per the pattern (not even the french seams got a look in!) just to get it finished quicker. Perhaps getting new fabric in the post for the next project whilst the pyjamas were still in the making, may have had something to do with wanting to get them out of the way....? I wonder has this happened to anyone else, where you have lost interest half way through a project? Have to say, 'tis a first for me!
And I feel so warm, snug and cosy wearing them. After all, Is there anything better than snuggling up in a cosy pair of pyjamas with a hot drink and a good book whilst Jack Frost works his magic outside?
