Occasionally I do some unselfish sewing and recently made a pair of Thread Theory Eastwood Pajamas for Matt.
- Sewed version 3 with button fly in size large
- No alterations
The fit is good, but the size large says it has an an inseam of 31″ and Matt has an inseam of 32″, so these pajamas feel like they are generous on the inseam. I know pajamas are supposed to be on the long side and pool at the ankles a bit, but these seem even longer than the pajamas in the pattern photo. It’s fine, I’m just noting it in case anyone is worried about having to add length to this pattern.
I’ve been working my way through some amazing fabric I got at a sewing swap held by my Seattlesews group. Somebody from our group brought a literal carload of fabric from someone she was helping move. A neighbor, maybe? A hoarder, perhaps? All I know is there was a shit-ton of denim, wool and flannel and I scored on all fronts. There was so much of it, I think we all went home with some pretty awesome fabric that day.
I feel like I am pretty decent at plaid matching these days, as I sew with plaid fabric quite a bit, but when I was cutting this fabric, something went awry with the back right leg. At the time, I was convinced the plaid was off-grain. It was old fabric, so I guess that is possible, but I’m not totally sure what happened. It’s either that or I cut off-grain slightly. You can’t really tell, except that the back pocket isn’t quite lined up the way I thought it should be. You can also tell at the cuff that everything is at a weird angle. The way these bag at the ankles, it’s not noticeable. In the end, it doesn’t matter that these are off-grain (especially since these are pajamas), it just had me scratching my head a bit at the time.
I don’t think Matt is generally as big on pajamas as I am. He usually just wears regular clothes to bed, like shorts or old work-out pants. Or maybe he just needed someone to give him some nice pajamas! Either way, he seems to like these jammies, as he has been wearing them to bed every night since I gave them to him.
I love that sewing has upped both of our jammie games and Matt and I are lounging and sleeping in style this winter!
