PJS SEWING PATTERN DETAILS
The lovely Coconut Pjs sewing pattern features a delicate and feminine design offering two different options to choose from that can be mixed up as you wish. For example, version A comes with long sleeves and trousers with slant pockets, while the collar features a casing with elastic that creates a lovely ruffle effect, which is repeated at the bottom of the sleeves. This can also be achieved with the known as shirring technique.
Regarding version B, it is perfect for the Summer months. You can also add a casing with elastic next to the hem, which is hidden on the wrong side of the fabric -achieved in a similar way using shirring. In this case, the collar is also elasticated without creating the ruffle effect, but a collar option is added on top. Having said that, all elements are interchangeable.
Last, if you prefer to opt for a simpler version pf the pjs, you can leave out the added collar or the ruffle on the sleeves or trousers and in addition, both blouses can be worn as daytime tops. Imagine the possibilities and how cute these two blouses would look paired up with a skirt or jeans!
With lots of detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results, we are sure you will love making a pair, or two! of the Coconut Pjs sewing pattern. And to help you with some of the techniques, you can follow our special tutorial on the CocoWawa YouTube channel.
