Hilarious 70s pajamas!!!

Chicago, Illinoi...






This is from a Simplicity pattern my mom gave me as a joke. I made the babydoll top, gathered and ruffled “panties”, curler cap and a pair of slippers from a 1948 pattern. I kind of made them as a joke, knowing they look absolutely insane, but they are very striking!

They used lots of elastic and some green pom-pom trim as well. The fabric is flannel printed with wiener dogs, which I bought at JO-Ann with a coupon. They were maybe $20 total.

Soooo many more pictures on my blog, and a pattern giveaway! Thanks for any comments!
