Yup, “Leisure Suit Loopy”, that’s what Mr Loops calls me when I wear this (as I am today as I post this!)
I of course prefer to call it loooooounge wear, or everyday clothes since we barely ever leave the house these days except to walk Rosie!
And yes, I am drinking wine… in the morning… in my looooounge wear
I saw this fabric in I think June and I HAD to order it to make some snuggly pjs or something despite it being super hot at the time, lol. And finally today it’s got cool enough to enjoy, yey, it’s soooo soft and snuggly and comfy, double yey.
I did cut the pattern pieces to waste as little fabric as possible, so the naps don’t match on the back and front… but I don’t care!
And finally… arty shot of the fabric dimples that Mr Loops made me include.
I used lilac dimple fleece from Pound Fabrics but they don’t have it anymore cos they sell out of the cute fabrics pretty fast, but I’ve seen it around all over the place
I used the Teen Spirit pattern by George & Ginger (affiliate link) for the top, it’s one of my fave top patterns (I’ve made it at least 5 times now I think), plus it comes with a hood but I didn’t have enough fabric for that, bah!! And I used the SOS Knit Pants pattern by Patterns for Pirates for the trousers, which is a great pattern (I’ve used it once before) but perhaps wasn’t the best choice for these just because it’s more of a [stretch] jeans type pattern with a yoke on the back and such, so next time I would prob use just a wide-leg trouser or pj pants pattern.
See ya next time!
