Blimey, it’s been a bit of a while!! I have been quietly lurking, but I haven’t sewed anything but dog collars recently (which is my actual tiny business) until now, Xmas holidays = time for making more lounge wear!!!
I picked up this brown and white knit fabric up for a sweeeeeeeet £1 per metre, not my usual brightly coloured or all black (cos I’m weird like that) but I thought it would be great for some snuggly pjs, or just lounging around the house
Since I often have really warm arms and shoulders in bed I figured a cold shoulder top would be perfect, albeit apparently my shoulders aren’t that wide as it came out more cold upper arms than cold shoulders, but I still really like the look.
NOTE: I made the trousers with my sewing machine, but the top with my overlocker/serger, and looking at the close up above I really need to play with the dial tensions on my overlocker!
Now, I also get really hot hips in bed, but thankfully for you cold hips trousers isn’t a thing (even though it techically wouldn’t be difficult to achieve ) so I just made some nice wide leg bottoms, but with pockets… obviously!
I will say, it may have been a daft idea to do the photos outside, cos even though it’s quite mild here at the moment I was still frozen, rofl.
Brown and white knit from Pound Fabrics, alas it already isn’t in stock anymore cos they sell out super quickly unsurprisingly!!
I used the Anniversary Top pattern by George & Ginger (affiliate link) for the top, and I used the free Wide Leg Pants pattern by So Sew Easy, which I’ve used a few times for pj bottoms (and also once to make some Palazzo Trousers with a woven fabric because I’m a dumb*ss and didn’t realise it was for knits…duh!!!)
See ya next time and Happy Holibobs!
