A day late, but I showed up to the Pyjama Party with a giveaway!

I made the above pajama pants out of McCalls 5248, my old favorite. This time I added pockets and posted a tutorial here. The above position is the most common view I have in bed. Yes, my assistant sleeps between my legs and gazes dreamily out the window. OK, mostly she snores and drools, but it is how we sleep. When she is not there I can't sleep and when I am not there she can't sleep. Poor Mr. Thinks He Can.

Here is a sad picture of me modeling my pockets. I'm a week out from losing an organ people! Give me some credit for trying. :-)

Joann's had McCall's patterns on sale this weekend, so I bought an extra copy of this pattern.

I figured I may show up late to the party, but I also brought a cool consolation prize. To enter leave me a comment with a way to reach you. I will choose a winner on May 5 at noon CST. Or as we say in Houston "at high noon on Cinco de Mayo." Viva!

Oh yeah, and what am I reading? The Summer edition of Interweave Stitch Magazine This magazine comes out quarterly and always has at least three projects I want to do. This month featured an article by Gertie on Alfred Shaheen Hawaiian Bombshell dresses.


  1. I have never made pj bottom. But love your idea of seersucker for summer hang out in the housewear. Cool idea to add pockets. cma21317atsbcglobaldotnet

  2. Would love to make these drawstring shorts, but I might be tempted to wear them outside. Oh well, I don't have to tell that they're pjs.

  3. Ha! I think I had a blouse made from a similar print. :D Those look super cozy! Perfect for resting during your recovery. I hope you're feeling better!

    Also, that is a fantabulous pattern! I REALLY like the top and nightgown. SIGN ME UP SCOTTY!

  4. At least you made it to the party. I love the fabric you used.

  5. These are really cute. I love the seersucker comfortable , isn't it?
    Happy sewing..
