This week I decided to make summer pajamas for some of my kids. Two of my older boys decided they didn’t need Mom to sew them a new pair of “fun” summer pajamas, but the other 5 were interested. I had ordered some fun fabric panels from Peekaboo Pattern Shop with summer pajamas in mind. I just love the fabric she designs, and used it as inspiration for 4 of the 5 pairs of summer pajamas.
Allegra received a really fun pair of pajamas. I used the Lane Raglan to make her a fun graphic tee from the Crazy Hair Don’t Care panel from Peekaboo Pattern Shop. From the coordinating knit fabric, I sewed her a pair of summer pajama shorts using the Skyline Skort pattern and omitting the skirt. (Irony from Skirt Fixation!) The shorts fabric is currently sold out, but look at all these other fun fabrics designed by Peekaboo Pattern Shop!
Aria chose some french terry fabric for her summer pajamas. French terry is perfect for summer pajamas due to the breathability of the fabric. The shorts pattern is again the Skyline Skort with the skirt omitted. The french terry fabric is from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. The top is also a Lane Raglan from french terry which was a dress in it’s former life! This set is the softest ever…and I think she’ll be wearing the shirt outside of bedtime as well. I know I would!
When I saw this fabric panel at Peekaboo Pattern Shop, I knew it would be perfect for Annie. For her top, I lengthened the Camden Raglan to tunic length and used some more of a skirt I had in the refashion pile for the red striped fabric.
For the bottoms, I used Lil Luxe Collection’s Slim Trousers pattern and the remnants of another blue striped skirt. Annie sewed on the buttons on the back faux star pockets on the back, and there you have the perfect summer pajamas for Annie!
The little boys had to have something semi matching. When I ordered the I Want S’More fabric panel (sold out, but check out these other cute ones!) from Peekaboo Pattern Shop and the coordinating s’mores fabric I hadn’t planned on making each boy a set of pajamas.
But then when everyone was getting some summer pajamas, and I had enough fabric to make two pairs of shorts, I had to try to make another shirt. Allegra wrote the words with a white fabric marker and eyeballed the stick.
With some marathon sewing, in two days 5 of my kids had new summer pajamas. Plus I snuck in a new pair of summer pajama shorts for me, also using the Skyline Skort pattern and some black sweatshirt fleece. It’s a good thing because now I think I need to go take a nap!
