Description

I thought it would be cute to make my guys matching jumper jammies. I’m really pleased with how they came out. I don’t really think that my husband will be wearing them very often. I really liked the idea at first but then he thought it looked weird in them. It’s OK though, they fit me too. They aren’t very flattering on a person of my size but they are super comfy. I think I may see if I have enough leftover fabric to make my hubby some matching pj pants.

They were fairly easy to make, although, I did make it harder on myself by enlarging the pattern for my husband. I thought that the XL size was going to be too tight in the shoulders and too short in the torso. I ended up having to take it in quite a bit. I didn’t follow all the directions for finishing the cuffs and collar. Instead I used elastic. In hind sight probably not a good idea for the neck. It kinda makes it look like a clown costume. I had thought about adding feet using a spat pattern but decided against it. I’m sure I will make it again. When I do, I think I’m going go with the XL size and I think I may add a hood. I’ll probably use fleece too.

    I adore the first photo – father and son in matching PJs with chicklets on them – this is so cute and made me smile quite a bit (:

      Thank you so much. It was cute when my husband was trying them on for the picture my son got upset thinking that Daddy was trying to put his on. I think I’m going to try to make a matching one for my son’s teddy from Build-a-Bear too.
