Description

My sister was struggling to find nice PJs for her boys, 2 and 6, so she commissioned me to make some ;) Print fabrics are from JoAnne red tag. I like the tractors and jeeps a lot, but I sense Wall-E is really a 70’s robot…think it’s his color-way :)

Patterns are Simplicity 9499 and New Look 6932

I used the waistband technique from Cheeky Panties for necklines, banding sleeve ends, and the bottom of the Wall-E top.

Material Notes

trousers are: tractors – cotton, Wall-E – Flannel.
Everything else is some kind of jersey.

Difficulty

Intermediate

    At first glance these look store bought! Totally professional!! You really mastered the fabric coordination, and the overall look is super. I bet your sister is so thrilled- and the boys, too!

      Hey thanks – they were a lot of fun to make and a good way of trying out techniques with jersey.
