|Rearing to go party hardy... with a good book?|
All week I've been looking forward to the Pyjama Party hosted by Karen, at Did You Make That? Work was crazy cramped and stressful, my body was tired, and I had nothing else planned for this weekend! (See previous post to understand how rare and aMAZing that is.)
It was only by Saturday morning, as I was doing work at the yoga studio, that it dawned on me that SATURDAY, not Sunday was the pyjama party. And I had nothing to wear. Well, nothing pajama like that I had made yet, at least. And it took me only a little while longer to realize that I needed a nap.
Yesterday consisted of a lot. of. sleep. And a mind that wouldn't stop thinking about sewing. It's a painful mix, folks. I had a dream last night that I cut before adjusting the pattern. I think it had something to do with these PJs.
|Sooo... where is everyone? The party is today (Sunday), right?|
I used a vintage cotton fabric I got in a barter. I say it's vintage because of the design, and because the selvage was much smaller than what one gets these days. I actually had to add some extra fabric to the inner leg/crotch portion of the back legs, because the selvage was so narrow. In truth, though, I'm not really sure about it's true age.
The pattern I used was the lovely little pj pattern that Kat sent me for the Moon Munkie Mystery Make, as I'd mentioned before: New Look 6924. I didn't want pants, so I shortened the length. I didn't, however, actually pay attention to the length between top and crotch. Dangit!
Folks, I could have worn the pair I cut out originally over this belly relatively comfortably. Or my pjs would have been pants with the MC Hammer low-crotch. Either way, it was good I slept on it, because I woke up fully lucid and just chopped off about 2.5 inches from the top. (That way, these would still be loose on the hips, lowish in the crotch, but not re-dik.)
|Well, while I'm waiting, I'll just read some.|
|*Yawn* Wake me when the party gets here.|
|If you want to see seams and print details on the fabric, I'm sorry, but you have to look at my bum.|
I also plan on making a pair or two of yoga pants as well, but they'll have to wait for when I finish making a dress or two for this week's special events.
Thanks Karen for hosting the fun party! And darn it, I wish I could try that Sweeteeny Tini! Oona, do you think Ruggy would make me a post-labor cocktail? I've got some homemade ginger-blood orange vodka I'm steeping over here...
