sherbet pips jammie pants

A spur of the moment type thing this weekend.  Decided I needed to cut into the lovely Sherbet Pips puppy fabric I had been hoarding (by the lovely Aneela for Moda).  I kept thinking pajamas for these prints. And maybe I’ll make coordinating pajama tops for these pants someday, but I just don’t think they’d wear them.  But these pants will definitely get worn, the last set I made has definitely been outgrown.  

I used the Slumber party Jammies pattern by Make It Perfect.  It was already traced and ready to go, so that made things even easier.  I changed the cuff a little so I didn’t have any hemming, and used 1″ elastic instead of 3/4″, hopefully that’ll help keep them up where they belong!  (The cuff fabric is a random polka dot from Hancock Fabrics and the other is Hello Pilgrim by Lizzy House)
I keep thinking how my kids are in a phase now where they aren’t wearing much of what I make them, usually whatever I make gets worn a couple times and then they forget about them.  The soft knit shirts and pants that I’ve made get worn the most.  So I’m thinking I’ll try to be a little more selective when making them clothes, hey, maybe I’ll just end up making more clothes for me instead!

    How sweet! Your girls are just adorable in those 🙂
    I know what you mean about them having their own ideas when it comes to choosing what they wear, I get that all the time too.

    Very cute, but you’re a worthy clothing recipient too, don’t forget it!

    Those are really cute!!! And you have such happy girls 🙂 Definitely the perfect jammy pants fabric. PJ pants are on my list of things to make for my girls. I found that they do wear the yoga skirts I made them last year pretty regularly, but I can’t see them wearing anything else that wouldn’t be super comfy. If my simplicity pattern doesn’t work out for the pants, I’ll definitely check the one out that you used.

    Such cute jammies. Enjoy while they’ll wear them 🙂 I am going to make summer PJs for my teenage daughter, just because I want to, but the odds are good that she’ll turn up her nose in disdain. My 15-yo son will occasionally ask me to sew or knit him something (he likes funky hats), but I’ve pretty much decided all my making has to be for me. At last!!

  11. Laura says:

    They are lovely pjs, so cosy and your girls look so sweet in them.

  12. So adorable! I agree-Sadie has tons of tops in her drawer that she never wears-she prefers comfy dresses. At least I know what she likes, I guess!

    oh i love that fabric and it’s great your girls are happy and cozy! i’m with jess – my little gal goes straight for dresses every day – peasant dresses or other loose-fitting ones. i guess it’s just trying to figure out what they will wear and trying to be creative within that, eh? 🙂

  17. QuiltyGirl says:

    Too cute! I love pj pants. And they are a great project when I need a sewing pick me up. So fast and easy. 🙂

  18. I always wonder about that… I’m learning to sew now that my little one is a toddler so she doesn’t get much say in what she wears. I make it, she wears it lol. But later on I know she won’t WANT to wear some of the things I make, just like I didn’t want to at times. Oh well I’ll just take advantage of this time.

  19. So adorable!! Love the fabrics! And I second you sewing for yourself. I just got some new fabrics to make some clothes for myself…finally.
