Making Summer PJ'S [Colette Violet Pattern]

Summer PJ's
[I  am so ready for spring!!!]

 Two Toast Made several pairs of comfy pj's..After  seeing
them.. I decided I needed to make my self some. I liked
her button up loose style, for comfort.  After checking
all my pj  patterns, I didn't have a button up top.. So,
I  decided to use the Colette Violet blouse pattern, for
the top.. [Just  enlarged it from my regular 14 to a 16
and added 2 inches to the length]
I wanted some cool summery fabric, I had this cute orange
floral stretch cotton.. But not enough to do both top
'and pj pants.. So, I made the pj pants out of  an orange
gingham check..
Check out Two Toast 's blog, to see her cute pj's.

                                                Waiting to be worn...

  4. Oh goodness, friend, those look SO summery and delightful! We only have about 4 weeks of snow left here in the frozen tundra. Weekend forecast? 10-12 more inches.... ENOUGH.....My flannel is wearing quite thin! Looking forward to lighter weight clothing and some spring sewing. Have a sketch of a 20's or 30's shift I want to make in cotton. Just need to get me some grid paper and work it out. Keep you posted.... D.

    I haven't bought a Colette pattern yet. Did it sew up easy and was the fit, true to size on pattern?

    1. Thank you Sherry..
      I love Colette's patterns.. I have bought several of them.. The instructions are very easy to follow.. They run a little bigger than the big 4 patterns.. I think I read, that they are based on a D cup.. I always cut a size smaller in her patterns.. [Makes me feel better ,any way,ha]
