Vintage-style toddler pyjamas

June 10, 2015

The daughter of a good friend of mine is turning three today, and although I live 100 miles away from her, I was passing in her general direction over the weekend and so was able to pop in to personally deliver her present – a pair of hand-made pyjamas!

Birthday girl!

I’ve used this pattern several times now – New Look 6932 – and always been pleased with the result.  The pyjama top is a bit fiddly, especially the yoke and its facing, but nothing a few deep breaths, gritted teeth and pint of gin can’t get you through.  The thing I love most about these pyjamas is the leg frill: it’s so cute!  The last time I made these for my own daughter, I forgot to trace that particular pattern piece, but this time I made sure I had it.

I’ve had the fabric in my stash for over three years – funnily enough the only thing I had used it for before now was for an applique heart to put on some personalised baby bunting…the baby being none other than the beautiful three year old recipient of these pyjamas!  When I bought the fabric I had no idea it would be destined for her and her alone!  It’s a medium weight cotton and the background colour is white, although on some of these photos it looks almost pinky but that’s down to my photography/lighting/camera.

I didn’t really expect my friend’s daughter to be so excited by the gift, to be honest, because I assumed when it comes to presents most children would rather have toys, but she liked them so much that she demanded to wear them immediately!  This was brilliant as it allowed me to get a few snaps of her wearing them!

Pyjamas: perfect for......the garden?!?!

Apparently she has declared all her other pyjamas are rubbish! 🙂

      They are a lovely design. It makes a change from regular pyjamas. I think the pyjama top is nice enough to wear as a blouse actually (in a different fabric).
