Such a good feeling waking up in a lovely pair of PJs!
Greetings from the gazebo, a colorful escape and peaceful refuge to start my day. In April, I borrowed a pair of my friend’s Carolyn Pajamas by Closet Case Patterns and at last I have my own. If you’re a Bedhead fan then you’ll love this pattern!
For the shirt, I sewed the front and back bodice, lower pocket and arms in Soul Mate It Takes Two in bone.
The cuffs, collar, upper pocket and facings were sewn in Soul Mate’s Power Point, Cocoa. The collar, facings, pocket and cuffs were piped in turquoise.
As a newbie to embroidery, I’m exploring my new machine‘s capabilities and embroidered the pocket with my monogram.
(Hoping to order monogram software soon! )
Last but certainly not least! ……
Secura Thread is a game changer in my books!
Coats & Clark recently introduced me to this awesome product, available in six colors.
This innovative thread is heat activated by steam which causes the thread to lock to itself. Simply attach the button with the thread and steam with your iron. No more loose buttons or embellishments! Once you try it you’ll never use anything else 🙂
My preferred taste is to use smaller buttons for shirts, unless I want a decorative look.
The bottoms are sewn in the reverse colors of the top. This time the main parts (legs) are sewn in the Power Point Cocoa and the contrast (waistband and cuffs) is sewn in It Takes Two. I piped the pockets and the cuffs for a polished result.
The only downside of my new PJs is not wanting to get dressed 😉
Cheers to lazy mornings and a good night’s sleep!
