Nearly 90 of you responded to my recent blog post about Home Clothes. Which I think means we like them!
My recently made Tofino pyjama bottoms are now too hot to wear in the heat, but I prefer some decorum as I lounge on the sofa. So I decided to make a much shorter pair out of brick red double gauze. I also used a grey polka dot and lace bias tape and hemmed using a decorative stitch in contrasting white thread.
I think Ella approves:
I left out the buttonholes and belt tie on the waistband. The inside leg seam measures no more than 7 inches – these are shorties! Would I wear them in front of other people? Sure, at a pyjama party with good friends or relaxing with loved ones. Maybe if I was camping at a festival and on my way to the portaloos at 6am – defo wouldn’t care then. Attending a barbeque or sitting in a pub beer garden? No way! Know what I’m saying?
These are perfect for their intended usage – Home Clothes to wear in the heat. Testament to the versatility of this pattern. They’re going to get worn to death.
