Completed Project: New Look 6932 Children’s Pyjamas

December 10, 2012

More pyjamas?  You betcha!  This time for Little Tweedie – and it isn’t the first time I’ve used this pattern – but still worth a quick show and tell.

Here are the previous versions I’ve made using this basic pattern:

Pyjama bottoms made for a friend’s son using Alexander Henry Lorenza Onyx Stripe fabric. I am totally going to make my own son a pair the same as this in the near future!

Floral and frilly! Made for my daughter.

Another pair for my daughter, this time using the jersey tshirt option.

The floral and frilly ones have had so much wear this past year, and have been admired by all who have seen them.  They are so pretty, and the small floral print gives them a very vintagey feel, so I absolutely had to make a new pair in the next size up.  Cue more floral fabric…

Age 3 version with a small scale floral print again.

The only thing I totally forgot to do this time was to cut leg ruffles for the trousers.  I didn’t notice until I began sewing, by which time the leftover fabric had been discarded.  Slightly disappointing, but thankfully it was only a decorative feature rather than a key component!

Frilly top with plain bottoms

Judging by how much the previous pairs got worn this year, I feel these will be a great success, and will get made again and again as she gets older.  Next time, I’m going to use a different print – perhaps polka dots or stars – for a bit of variety.

The pyjama top. Love those frilly cuffs!

This pattern has already been so useful and will continue to be so as I go on to have a baby boy!  I like the fact it come with patterns for a jersey tshirt, and the fact that you can make either top long or short sleeved, or the pyjama bottoms long or short.  Plus, the pyjama bottoms are extremely quick and easy to sew and would make great gifts.  Not that I’ve got round to that yet… 😉

    Love making jammies for my kiddos too… every year! This year my 17 year old told me she had too many jammies and didn’t need any for Christmas. :-/

    Can you help me out? I’m making these now, and I’m at the yoke stage. I’m a novice sewer, so maybe I just don’t get what it is telling me, but I’m having trouble understanding the instructions and what it wants me to do. Did you put the pieces of the yoke together before attaching (directions aren’t clear, but neither method — apart or together — seems to e yielding results like the picture). And did you actually use the second piece of front yoke it said to cut? I’m seriously a day away from scrapping the whole thing and keeping the PJs off-the-shoulder. 😦 TIA!

      Hi! I’m away for the weekend currently, but if you can wait until Monday I’ll have a look at the pattern and get back to you…

      Hiya. I had a look. You should have cut two front yokes and four back yokes. One of the front yokes will act as the facing, as will two of the back yokes. So: instruction 12 on pg 4 says to take one of the front yokes and stitch a back yoke to each side at the shoulder seam, so you have assembled the yoke which will be on the outside of your garment. You pin this to your pajama top, right sides together and with notches matching seamlines etc, and stitch. Next (instruction 13), you take the OTHER front and back yokes and sew them at the shoulder seams like the other yoke. Then, pin both yokes right sides together. When you’ve stitched them together, turn the yoke to the inside of your top.

      Does this make sense? I hope I helped a bit! Email me at tabathatweedie@gmail.com if you like!
