Of course such an occasion needed a new pair of special PJ's:
Aren't they fun? The PJ's included some of Piper's favorite things, fairies. The fabric is a flannel with Tinkerbell fairies on it. I started out just making the pants and had a blue long sleeved t-shirt that matched the piping that I added a Tinkerbell appliqué to. Piper's critique was that I needed to make the top, so I did.
I added some cute blue piping to the contrast on the cuffs and yoke/placket on the top. At first I wasn't going to add piping, then I was going to add white piping but I was afraid that wouldn't show up against the light blue of the main fabric so I ended up with the blue piping. I like the blue, it's a nice pop of color.
I enjoyed making these PJ's, they were quick to come together. What I most like is how soft the flannel is. I have always disliked american PJ's because they are either scratchy polyester or so tight that you can barely wiggle your little ones chubby arms and legs into them. I will definitely be making more of these, based on comfort factor alone.
Here we are at music class:
I tried to get Piper to model them while she was "sleeping", she's not the most convincing model :)
Her jammies sure do look comfy though, don't they?
