|My two heartbeats :)|
So, I won't tell you how long these M6458 pajamas have been languishing in my sewing room. Let's just say according to the husband, "He's surprised that they still fit!" LOL... What can I say? I am a selfish seamstress, yes even with my love bugs:)... This was my first time sewing a button down shirt of any kind, which I find to be odd, seeing that I have sewn at least three jackets. But never had I sewn a button shirt, hmmph... I'm intrigued now to say in the least, so much so that I am finally going to tackle that craftsy course on shirt making. I can't be the only one that buys these courses, and then take forevah to use them!
|Excuse the thread this was hot off the sewing machine!|
Okay back to the pajamas! My boys are so fascinated with transformers, like seriously it is not a game lol! I have to say that the instructions for the top were fantastic! I even made one shirt with piping, which was a first for this technique and it went in without a hitch! I didn't notice within the instructions that they required a lot of hand stitching and I'm sorry but I'm really not about that life HA! Other than obscene amount of hand stitching required for this top, this would really be a great pattern to get your feet wet in sewing shirts/blouses..
|first time adding piping...|
I purchased this flannel fabric from fabric.com several months back ,and had to purchase two additional yards after I realized that I needed to lengthen the pattern for my oldest son.. Thankfully they had more, whew! The bottoms were your typical pajama bottoms, no need to read the instructions there.. I also purchased the piping and buttons at my local JoAnn's.. Although it took me a minute to finish, not because this was a difficult project, in fact it was extremely easy. I now know that I am a selfish seamstress and I embrace that, yes I said "embrace"! LOL.. Oh, before I get out of here let me post a recent pic of my little bit, who is two months as of yesterday...
Well, ladies I hope you have wonderful week ahead! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue stay fearlessly fierce!
