I have been searching for the perfect pajama pattern and I have found them in the Movie Night Pajamas from Sew a Little Seam! These pajamas are so comfortable, that I don’t want to take them off. So, I just keep making more to wear. Not only is this an amazing pattern, but it is also a free pattern. The Sew a Little Seam facebook page has reached 10,000 members, which is so amazing! As a thank you, you can get both the women’s and children’s pajama patterns for free. Just head over to the FB page to get the codes. Currently there is also a code for 20% off all patterns!
The first time I sewed up the Movie Night pajamas, I made the long sleeve, scoop neck top and pants with cuffs and elastic in the waistband.
Next, I decided to try out the crew neck with the placket. I knew from sewing up the Birch button up, that the placket instructions would be detailed and easy to follow. I had no problem sewing up the placket, however adding the buttonholes was a different story. My machine did not like how thick my placket was, and I could not get it to sew the button holes. So, I decided to hand sew them. To do this you start by marking where your button holes will be, just like if you would be using a machine, however when sewing by hand you will cut the opening first.
I used embroidery floss to sew my button holes and simply sewed a whipstitch around the edge of the opening. I made sure to keep the stitches close together to fully enclose the edge of the cut fabric.
The fabric I used for these pajamas is a fun Marvel print from Jo-Ann Fabrics. My husband knew I had been looking for this particular fabric, and surprised me with it one day when he came home from work. He bought the last 2 yards that our store had. Well, after making my pajamas, my girls all wanted some too. I checked online, and saw that the store near my parents house (in another state) had 6 yards, and so my girls called Grammy to see if she would pick it up for us, and of course she did! I can’t wait to get the rest of the fabric so we can all match.
After hearing how comfortable my pajamas are, my youngest asked for some. She has been wanting a nightgown for awhile, and I saw that another tester had made a beautiful nightgown for her daughter. I used the top of the girls shirt pattern and extended the length and width starting just below the waist. She also requested 3/4 length sleeves for her nightgown. For my matching pajamas I made a short sleeve, scoop neck top and pants with cuffs and a yoga waistband.
These patterns come with so many options, and I know that I will continue to sew up many more versions of these pajamas. In fact, I already have fabric ordered for our matching Christmas pajamas!
Recommendations: Make a lot of these pajamas, because you will never want to take them off!!!
