PJ Day

During spirit week this year one of the days was PJ day.  Easy enough right?  Except that the girl can't wear nighties unless they have bottoms and no one can wear tank tops.  No big deal if it weren't also hot.  I know I could have gone shopping and gotten both kids new pjs but finding any for Emily that truely fit the rules would have been hard and finding any for Elijah that were topics he liked would have also been hard so I decided just to make them instead.
Emily's Pjs were made from a 90s pattern I picked up a while ago, Simplicity 9943.  I made shorts instead of bloomers to go under it though to keep up with the dress code.  Elijah's shorts were made from burda 9641.  Not a pj pattern but a shorts pattern that I had on hand.  I bought the fabric for Elijah's shorts since I don't have much boy fabric in my stash but the fabric for Emily's set has been hanging out in the stash for way too long.  There was a time when I would have said it was too nice for PJs but now I figure if its been there more then a year just using it is the ne goal.  Elijah's shirt was done with freezer paper.


  1. Smart Mama.. both pj's are so cute... Know the kids loved them too.. What a sweet pj pattern.

  2. Try to make jammies fit a dress code? Ack!

    But they are great-looking pajamas! I enjoy making the boys' fun boxer/pajama shorts since the fabrics for their normal clothes tend to be boring.
