Vintage Burda Pajama Set
I made some pj's! This is a Burda pattern re-release 7109. I just love how vintage kitschy it is. They definitely don't sell this kind of lingerie in stores anymore! I used a silk/cotton blend in a yellow floral print, that I got on sale at Fabricland. It is very sheer so I underlined the front of the bodice in a yellow voile I had leftover from a dress lining.
The pj top is sort of a bell shape and very lose, the bottoms are bloomers with elastic around the thigh! I didn't put sleeves on it, I thought it might be annoying to sleep in. The edges are finished with a bias tape, also made from the yellow voile. For all the seams I used the french finishing, for a nice clean look.
This was my first Burda pattern, and I was not really impressed. If I needed to use the directions I would have never finished this project. I'm still not sure how they wanted to attach the ruffle, so I just did my own thing. Definitely not for beginners, based on the directions alone. Why can't they just be clear!
So these are really comfy and cute for summer. If only I could get my beehive on like the illustration then I would be really cute!
