I think the above accurately sums up my mood! I’m soooo happy at how people have engaged with our Pyjama Party – Tofino Style. I’ve appreciated every comment saying how useful the sewalong posts were. Tutorial blog posts often receive few comments because of their nature – they’re not a conversation. So it meant a lot that people took the time to let me know I was doing okay.
On Friday we had our Shindig event with Tasia of Sewaholic! I had no idea what to expect, having never done anything like this before, but it was really fantastic. We were treated to a very intimate and privileged insight into Tasia’s creative process, business management and design ethos. Did you know that she added that piping in order to visually lengthen our legs – PJ bottoms being so blocky. Clever, huh? I was also thrilled to see one of the participants actually sewing as we had our video chat. Talk about multi-tasking! A huge thank you to Tasia for taking part – I think we were both stepping outside of our comfort zone.
What do I think to my Tofino pants now that I’ve had chance to wear them? It’s love. I think my favourite detail (after the piping) is the back waist section being drafted deeper than the front. This means that you can lounge around, all cross-legged and reaching for the next slice of pizza, and you don’t need to worry that you’re showing your butt! So, so clever. You can see this detail really well in the below photo. See how the back sections rise up significantly higher at the waist?
So, over to you! Did you make some Tofino pants or any other sort of pyjamas? Feel like sharing?

If you don’t have a blog, you can email me photos at didyoumakethat[at]fastmail[dot]fm. The giveaway will close on Friday 28 June, midnight GMT.
Right. Anyone fancy a pillow fight?
