Natty's Tie Dye Pajamas

Added Jun 14, 2011

Berkeley, Califo...






Lately, most of my sewing time has been spent working on a big pajama project. I’m going on a vacation with two of my best friends this month, so I thought it would be fun for us to have matching pajamas. And then I thought, why not make matching pajamas for my sister and cousin who both have birthdays coming up?
I have now made 5 pairs of matching tank tops and shorts. Phew!
For the tank tops I used Grainline’s Tiny Pocket Tank pattern , but altered the back by adding a big cutout and crisscrossed straps.
The shorts were based on the Jane pattern from BurdaStyle. I altered the shorts pattern by rounding off the corners on the side seams, adding bias binding all around the leg openings, and using a few rows of encased elastic for the waistband. I used french seams and a bunch of bias binding so that everything is nice and neat.
After all the sewing was complete, I tie dyed each pair in a different color combination.
This project was really fun and I can’t wait to run around in matching pajamas with my friends!

    So you tie dyed all the poajamas after sewing them? I thought you had used printed fabrics! You did a great job, the back of the top is very beautiful and I LOVE the colors!!! :) Now you should organize a pajama party with your friends, your sister and your cousin all together!
