Now you all know me by now, i am a sucker for a cute and quirky print and this fabric just fits the bill nicely! I picked J226 Yummy Cookie Love Heart Food Print on Liverpool base fabric.
I was a scaredy cat and didn’t make a dress but used this fabulous fabric to make myself a Tilly and The Buttons Juno Shortie PJ set. This pattern is from her latest book – Make it Simple which it really is and its a range of patterns from using woven fabric to jersey and in between.
Now on reading the measurements and on previous makes recently from her book at started with a size 6 for the shoulders, size 7 for Bust and Waist and finally a Size 8 for the Hips. I decided for a bit of contrast, i used black ribbing for the neckband.
The instructions on altering the bottom pants were easy to follow and i added an extra 3 inches to the length of mine as i ain’t one for showing masses of wobbly legs hahaha!
As usual, when i ever i try a fabric that i haven’t used before, i try a few stitch lengths to see which one holds the best and turns out Mr Singer behaved with a short zig-zag stitch. As always make sure your bobbins are full, nothing wose when running out of thread at the bottom when you are nearly finished!.
These do really sew up really quickly and i added a Kylie and the machine “You can’t buy this” label to the neckband whilst sewing it in place. Which of course was quite apt for these unique Pjs!
Now to be brave of using Black thread for my top stitching detail! Yeah… i like to live dangerously!
Then onto sewing in the sleeves, hemming the Tee and then remembering to pull the ends through on the threads on the right side to the wrong side and knot. Phew one Part of the Pj’s made! Yas!
Now onto the Shorts!
I lengthened the shorts by 6 inches are i ain’t one for ‘short’ shorts! but that was pretty easy to do in the book as Tilly shows you how to make the PJ long pants that were close fitting into short style and it’s not as hard as you may think.
These were a breeze to make as they are elasticated and they were sewn in no time at all and finished my hem with twin needle stitch and voila here is cute set of Pjs!
