Description

I had a bunch of lace left over from a sweater embellish project I did back in November. What with Valentine’s Day coming up (kill me) and my complete lack of a Valentine (kill me again) I thought I would make myself some cute pajamas in a very Carrie Bradshaw (kill me a third time) I choose me move.

I got some satin at Jomar for 2 dollars a yard (Good LORD do I love Jomar), and printed the Jane Pattern which I had purchased eons ago and forgotten I owned. I like the pattern, it’s fairly easy to use and I can see all sorts of possibilities. I’m going to make some more of the shorts as the weather gets warmer. I’ve been endlessly inspired by all of Colette Patterns embellishment tips for their Nutmeg pattern, and I bet I could apply these to the Jane. You can check those out here:

This was my first time working with satin. I was concerned it would be insanely slippery, but it was actually pretty easy to use! It is, of course, synthetic. I wonder if that makes a difference?

So now I have fun wine colored pajamas all trimmed in lace. Now if only my hair weren’t a mess…
