Seriously...Seriously I made these pajamas 2 months ago. For a hot minute I thought about pretending that I made them for the pajama party last weekend and faking all of you out. But then my conscious got the best of me. These pajamas are crazy and my life is crazy right now and I'm crazy for not posting them yet.
I think this is maybe the first vintage pattern I bought on Etsy. Back in the days where I just bought the pattern because it was cute and didn't pay a lick of attention to the size. Luckily, the sewing gods were smiling on me because this one turned out to be the right size out of sheer luck because I sure as heck didn't care back then. It's an adorable pattern and it's slightly Asian inspired and I love the idea of vintagey, slightly dressy pjs since my natural urge is to wear really hideous vintage polyester nightgowns to bed.
Yikes. They were huge, both in height and width. I basically chopped about 4 inches off the top and then added elastic which seemed to work out alright...
Here's how they turned out. I added flat black piping which turned out imperfect but pretty cute. The fabric is a Asian lantern print flannel from JoAnns. It jumped out at me from the pj flannel aisle and screamed "make those vintage Asian-ish pjs with me!" So I did.
