87 #Decemberbdaysew - Never Enough Time...

...I intermittently think about sewing all day long - what I'm going to sew and how much I can get accomplished when I get home - Yeah right!  And then when the clock does strike time to go home, there's always one or two errands to run that seem to alter all my sewing plans.  Today it was State Election Runoff, egad somebody had better win this time!

I've been watching lots of people making pj's for their entire family, what a nice Christmas tradition.  Decent PJ's are something I always seem to be in desperate need of but never take the time to make.  Today I decided to make a quick pair as part of my #Decemberbdaysew Celebration.

They won't be the tailored type that I'd really like, but I think they'll be sort of cute.  I'll be using this recently donated knit fabric


and combining these two patterns.
Burda 6630 Ragland tee rather than buying another popular Independent Ragland pattern that I'm in love with, and
Butterick 6296 pants even though it's a woven pattern, I'll go down a size for my knit fabric
Now to see how far I can get in sewing these up this week...

  3. Good Luck to you Ms. Faye! Yes, me made PJs are the best! Yours will be great in that fabric too! I have that Burda pattern and have not made it yet, so I’m looking forward to seeing yours completed!

  4. Knit pajamas are the way to go--so comfortable, and this stripe will be fun Faye! Sure enough I have a round of flannel jams sitting on my table right now. I actually just posted about planning out gift sewing for Christmas complete with a free mini planner. I can't wait to see how your birthday sewing shapes up!
