Ruffled PJs by Once Upon A Sewing Machine

Ruffled PJs by Once Upon A Sewing Machine

I’m glad you’re here today, because I’m dying to show you the hottest new pdf pattern: The Ruffled PJs!


The Ruffled PJs pattern is designed by Rachel & Donna at Once Upon A Sewing Machine.

These jammas are Sofie approved.

OUASM has several free patterns available. (I featured the Peasant Blouse in my Best Free Patterns roundup!) The Ruffled PJs will be their first pattern for purchase.

Show some love if you head over there! Rachel has been working her little booty off on The Ruffled PJs, I know a little pat on the back goes a long way. She’s always so quick to leave a kind word :)


Here are some details of the Ruffled PJs pattern:

A long sleeved, lined bodice with skirting

Buttons in back

An adorable ruffle at the waist

And cute little pants with an optional cuff.

I used this cuddly soft flannel fabric with slides, merry-go-rounds, and park benches printed on it.

I remembered to pre-wash, and I did a cold water vinegar soak. I dried it on the gentle cycle, and now the dye is set & they won’t fade much at all.

I trimmed the neckline, sleeves, ruffle, and hem with jumbo ric-rac. I had no choice. Sofie claimed it as hers. “Mine. Wic-wic mine.”


I think it’s so cute when her little broken sentences include sewing notions! Her brother, Evan, can name piping, binding, and knows different fabric types. He can clean and oil the sewing machine, and knows the names of several different sewing feet. I’m training them to be my sweatshop later!

Visit Once Upon A Sewing Machine to get your pdf copy of the Ruffled PJ Pattern! You will definitely see more of these from me; I’ve got 2 pairs on the table now! If you don’t have time to make a pair, visit the OUASM shop!

These sweet little pajamas are featured at Sumo’s Sweet Stuff:)

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    Darling jams!! But then everything looks cute on little Sofie!! I always pre wash flannel since it can shrink quite a bit but I didnt know the vinegar trick. That fabric is so cute with a lot of my favorite things on it. The pattern is so cute I think if done in cotton it would be a cute outfit
