Just finished this shorty pyjama duo, using all vintage cotton remnants from in my 70s fabric stash. I am getting used to making frills and thin piping now. It is fitted but comfy to wear. I actually didn’t use normal interfacing, and I also ran out of outer fabric, so I just used a medium weight white cotton for the inside lining areas. I literally ran scant when it came to the materials lol, I only had enough green fabric left in the end to make one tiny bow for the front center, instead of two, and barely had enough to make the straps. Location: St Mary’s Bay.

Material Notes

woven 70s cotton fabrics: lightweight/orange/spotted, lightweight/green, and mediumweight/white; 3cm width elastic; 5 small vintage green buttons
