When the temps drop the girls love nothing more than staying indoors in their jammies, with some hot chocolate, popcorn and a movie. Who could blame them? Out of everything I have ever made them the handmade pajamas and nightgowns get the most wear. The dresses and tops I make them don’t always make the cut when getting dressed for school (so sad), but the cozy flannel nightgowns and waffle knit pj’s get chosen again and again. When I came across this black and white bow print waffle knit at (of course) Girl Charlee I jumped on it and bought a few yards. You can’t go wrong with the price! You can find it here.
I don’t think I would sew with this particular fabric again though- I think the bow print gummed up my sewing machine- the serger kept skipping stitches and my sewing machine broke a needle! Not sure if it was just a bad day for me or if it it was the “paint” used to make the bows (they are a bit raised and imprinted on). Either way I was so frustrated and they took MUCH longer to make than they should have- but I finished them! Seeing how much Isabel loved them totally made it worth it! I self drafted a pattern for the top using the same construction as my Skater dress pattern (but added a banded bottom), and the pants are made from my Go To leggings pattern.
