#getsetsewnovember Christmas Pjs
Ok hands up.... who doesn't love a cosy pair of Christmas PJs to snuggle up in over the festive period, I know I do 🎄🎅😆and the best ones are those you've made for yourself! So this year we thought why not have a #getsetsew christmas PJ challenge. Of course if you don't celebrate Christmas we're not leaving you out because who actually doesn't need an excuse to curl up in a lovely pair of PJs??
There are so may different styles of pyjama patterns that there is sure to be something that will make you want to join in with this month's #getsetsew.
Are you a full length sleeve and leg pyjama person, or maybe shorts and a t shirt or cami top. Or is your favourite full on luxury with piped edging and covered buttons? Do you prefer stretchy knit fabric, cool woven cotton and linen, or sumptuous silk? Or are you a nightdress or even nightgown person, maybe complete with a night cap, the Wee Willie Winky kind, not the alcoholic type, because as far as I'm aware you can't actually sew alcohol!! Although if you fancy a tipple then PJs could be the perfect attire for this!!
My favourtie pyjama pattern is the Juno PJs from the Tilly and the Buttons Sew Simple book, in fact it's a real Start to Stitch favourite with both me and Jackie having made these for ourselves and family. And it's also a big hit in the Stitch Sewcial Facebook group.
You could go one step further and make PJs for the whole family, maybe even matching ones? How great would the family photo's look on Christmas morning?? And remember you don't necessarily need to buy a new pyjama pattern, you may already have patterns that you can use. For instance you could use jogging bottoms / yoga pants / leggings and a long or short sleeved T-shirt to make a lovely pyjama set, with the added bonus that you already know what the fit is like! This is what I've done with the children's PJs in the pictures below.
There are some really lovely children's PJ patterns that we have included in the list below. And PJs can be enjoyed by even the tiniest of small people 👶 My gorgeous girls here are wearing the DIBY Anything But Basic Kids Tee and the Waves and Wild Four Seasons Joggers. The baby pyjamas were made for my niece and are the Waves and Wild Explorer Tee and the Sew 4 Bub Grow with Me Baby Hareem Pants. The dribble bib was a free pattern by @sweetredpoppy.
We've put together a list of free and paid for patterns with links for you as a starter for 10! There are some good ones here but please let us know if you have your own favourite PJ patterns and we'll add them into a resource guide in our Stitch Sewcial Facebook group.
