Cheeseburger Pajamas | Simplicity 0100
Weird title, huh? Cheeseburger pajamas. I made these a couple months ago with no intention of showing them on the blog. Then I found these photos on my hubby’s phone and figured it’s a good enough excuse to come say hello to my sewing friends.
I’ve been crazy busy making bows for the middle school cheerleading squad, butchering chickens, back to school shopping, and trying to get some farm income rolling in. I’ve been feeling a bit like “a chicken with its head cut off” trying to get everything done from day to day. And now I know what that expression means because….yeah.
I have some sewing projects and some bow tutorials lined up for ya, I just need to get my butt in gear and take some pictures. I’ll get there, I swear. If I could have paid help I wouldn’t even wish for a maid or a chef, it would be a photographer.
The fabric has fast food junk all over it, which Bella loves. I used Simplicity 0100 and the sizing was spot on. I don’t like the interior of the pajamas where the lapel meets the collar. I think I’ve read about a nicer looking contraction method but I can’t remember where. I normally avoid collars because meh.
Too bad I have no detail shots of this make. I added 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon to the interior neckline and that part looks really professional. I think I’ll do that to all my woven necklines. I’m a sucker for a pretty interior.
The buttons are pink zebra which doesn’t match but who cares, right? I added piping to the collar, pocket, and button placket to match the buttons. Clash hard or go home.
No mind boggling techniques or helpful tips in this post. Just a pair of cheeseburger pajamas that are cool enough to wear out in public. (Only I would brag about my kid wearing her pajamas out in public.)
