Mix and Match PJs
I picked up some really cute cotton jersey with a trick or treat theme, in pink and lime colours on white. I paired this with plain white to make two sets of mix and match pyjamas.
The pattern: Simplicity 5874 (now out of print)
I chose a pattern with a raglan sleeve, and very glad of it. I think it works best with the use of two fabrics and contrasting neck bands, and went together far more quickly and easily than a set-in sleeve would.
Neck and cuff detail
Two finished sets
Made from a home-drafted pattern, this was a quick dress made up from a lightweight stretch denim, decorated with woven daisy flat lace and recycled brass buttons from an old garment. Oddly, the lace was the first thing I found, with the design working from there. I added pleats to the front and back of the skirt to add interest and extra volume.
