I first sewed this pattern years ago for a friend’s son. It’s so lovely to be able to sew a pair for one of my own children!
Elena has been growing like a weed lately and, with the recent spell of cooler nights, we’ve discovered she has grown out of last winter’s pajamas. Elena is so tiny that I’ve made her the 12-18 month size. I measured her about 10 times and she always fell into that size range. I must confess I’ve held my breath about the fit. So far, so good. I’ll have my complete answer when I finish the pants off this evening.
These pajamas are her first ‘grown up’ pajamas – before now she has just slept in all-in-one sleep suits. I hope they keep her nice and toasty.
We tried the top on for size this morning as we went out to check our pot plants.
Quick check to make sure Hugo’s still inside.
