Pajama Party Sew Along

This summer I have been lamenting the lack of proper pajama's for our unusually hot weather.  Now you know I love the heat, but it does require proper attire.  Seeing as how we only have 2 opportunities to sew together in August at Nicolet, and understanding how busy everyone is this time of year especially here in the North Woods I thought a Pajama Party Sew Along would suit perfectly. 

If you are a beginner, pajama pants or capri's are a great place to begin your garment sewing experience.  If you have very little time to sew this summer, pajama pants or a nightgown would be the perfect small project. 

I will post once a week in August possibly more for this sew along and you can check in and sew along at your convenience.  Now I have designed a pair of pantaloons for my summer p.j.s, which I will post in a day or two,  but you are welcome to sew any garment that you would wear for sleeping or lounging. 

We will begin August 5th (Friday) and you will need to let me know your joining by commenting below.  I f you will be making pajama pants you will need the following supplies
  1. Pant pattern such as New Look 6160, McCalls 3432
  2. Required fabrics and notions per pattern instructions.
This will be your opportunity to ask questions of me through the site which I will do my best to answer in the form of pictures or videos as the case may be.  So dust off your sewing machine, dig through your stash and lets do some sewing together.

To get you thinking about your pajama's here is some inspiration.

Nighty Nights

These look like they would certainly do the trick for hot summer nights.  A pattern made by Favorite Things and found at their on-line store The Sewing Garden

Chinese pajamas

For something elegant you might want to try these Chinese pajamas from Folkwear patterns

Princess slip

 For the lover of vintage nostalgia, this Princess slip from Folkwear  would make a beautiful nightgown

Free Pattern from Sew News
Keeping it simple this pattern is available on Sew News as a free download.  So all you need is a printer and some tape. 

I hope you are all fired up to join me for a Pajama Party.
