This PJ was sewn quickly after this, this and this one, all a matter of using a cut pattern to its fullest. I originally planned on making a dress, but I was overestimating my daughters length (because she is growing out of all her dresses with an incredible speed) and ended up with a too long garment. The length was perfect for PJ's though, and seeing that she loves to wear PJ's anyway, this one will get a good amount of wear for sure.
Another reason why the dress turned PJ was because I wasn't satisfied with my finishing level. The first problem was that I cut the extended wrist cuffs too short (I wanted to try something else), so I sewed the two pieces together (to make one big one) and cut another big one. I ended up sewing the cuff inside out on the arm though, that is why the seam is showing, and I was not in the mood to take it off again (I was convincing myself it doesn't really show, but I was kidding myself). I hemmed the dress by just sewing a doubled piece of jersey on the bottom. Trying out something new, but even after I did an extra line of stitching, the bottom has the tendency to curl upwards.
I bought the fabric at Joyfits for just 11 euro's (a bargain for an entire meter of organic fabric). The fabric is out of stock now, but check out this section of the site for other bargains. Also the contrasting light blue is from Joyfits.
So, not a very successful garment, but I love the pictures though! I gifted myself a background and I love it, it is just plain white, but I feel it makes my inside pictures much more professional looking. Let's end with a true sneak peek of the garment I am testing, it is going to be great!
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
