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

Q&A with crazihippichic

Screaming Mimi asked:
Very cute! I too like the detail on the top...the details, combined with your fabric choice create a nice retro look. Nice work!
crazihippichic answered:
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".
Davesmom asked:
What material did you use for trim? Is it bias tape? The PJ's look great.
crazihippichic answered:
I used the same fleece fabric that I used in the pants. Trying to tie it all together.
Lynne O asked:
I really love your jammies, you did a fantastic job making them!
crazihippichic answered:
Thanks Lynne. :-)

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!
crazihippichic answered:
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.
