Self drafted pyjama set inspired by a Simplicity pattern (S618) illustration from the 1930s.
The top has circular cap sleeves and they and the bodice hem are finished with a narrow contrast colour bias binding. The V-neck is finished with contrast fabric facing and there is a bow- tied belt.
The pj bottoms have a wide 28’ leg. I made the waist slightly elasticated and there’s a side placket that fastens with snaps. The top just pulls on over the head.
I put a free pdf pattern just for the pyjama top on my website ( UK size 10/12) and will upload it here on Burda too in a few days.
Just for fun I’ve illustrated my PJs as if they are on a vintage pattern envelope.
Thin Italian silk satin in a ‘jockey’ print.
