What materials did you use? Pajama flannel.

What are you most proud of? The contrasting trim. And the buttonholes. I sewed these pajamas on my Bernina 830 Record. All but the buttonholes. Those were sewn on my Singer 600E using a buttonhole attachment. It makes perfect buttonholes.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be aware that it runs big and make the proper adjustments to the pattern.

Very cute! I too like the detail on the top...the details, combined with your fabric choice create a nice retro look. Nice work!

Thank you. Yes, I was pretty excited to find the retro 70's flannel. You'd think I'dd have had enough of those colors, having grown up in the 70's. Come to think of it, I seem to remember our house having kitchen linoleum almost exactly like that. LOL! Speaking of the 70's, and your screen name, my mom used to raise Dachshunds and one of the puppies was named "Screaming Mimi".

What material did you use for trim? Is it bias tape? The PJ's look great.

I used the same fleece fabric that I used in the pants. Trying to tie it all together.

Great job on the pj's they look warm, I was cold all night last night, and thought I should make myself some pj's, yours are inspiring.

Super pjs crazyhippi! I'll have to give them a try. I run "big" too so I have trouble finding things long enough in the stride as well as sleeves and pant legs. Will look for the pattern and have a go. Great to see you posting again. Hope you'll finish your BOM! You have such great fabric and your quilt will be not only unique but gorgeous!

I'll be getting back to the quilt right after the holidays, Jean. I got bogged down with the gardening, and bees. This was my first honey harvest. And then I ventured off into sewing clothing. So many fun things to do and so little spare time.
