Los Angeles, Cal...
I found this spectacular sheet set at the thrift store and fell in love with the cats frolicking all over it. The color, not so much. Since I really wanted to be able to wear it, but didn’t want to have people staring at the awkwardness of my skin next to that beige, I decided to make them into pajamas (and then post pictures of my wearing said pajamas online so people could see? Sometimes I don’t make any sense). I traced off a pair of existing pj pants for the bottoms, and used Colette’s free top pattern, Sorbetto, to make the top (minus the pleat). I used French seams everywhere so that these would last a long time. I was so excited about the pajamas that I made Walnut jump on the bed with me.
