Summer pjs


The kids are growing and the weather is getting warmer; time for new pajamas!


The pattern I used is Alex & Anna Winter PJs from Peek-a-Boo Pattern shop. I modified them by making them short sleeved and made two out of the four bottoms into shorts. Peek-a-Boo patterns does offer summer pjs in this style however if you don’t feel like modifying the winter version.


I’m very happy with the pattern and the finished product. These pjs look like I bought them from the store! Check out that neck finishing! I’m still only a novice..maybe intermediate knits sewer, and I pulled this off. Anyone with a twin needle on their sewing machine can make some great looking pajamas using this pattern too!


For my daughter I sewed her pair in size 4. She picked out the fabric she wanted from a huge tub of knits I still have from my closed cloth diaper sewing shop. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough of this print so the back is done from the pink fabric I used for the binding. I think it still works and my daughter loves them 😉


For my boy I sewed his pj’s in size 18 months and they fit him wonderfully! I also used stash fabric and got to use up a few of my favorite prints. NASA? Yes.


This print is by David & Goliath. They have some very witty and downright awesome fabrics that are great for sewing kids clothes from. I love this “Far Out” print and it’s probably my favorite of the bunch!


If you’re looking for organic knits, check out Lillestoff. They are a maker of very high quality imported fabrics who just keep cranking out the cutest prints. “Night Fox” is one of my favorites.


Some “Ring around the rosies” pj action 🙂


And of course a pj dance party!

  1. I love those Lillestoff ones! Drroooool. You have great tastes in fabrics! I love sewing PJs for my kids. They can be picky about clothes, but they always wear knits.
