I Like You: Carolyn Pajamas




My favorite time of day, is when its FINALLY time to put pajamas on and go to bed. I love love love pajamas. I was so excited when the Carolyn Pajama pattern by Closet Case Files came out. A full set of pjs, that is cut in a modern way. There are plenty of big 4 pattern pjs out there but I've attempted to make them and they are always huge and frumpy. I knew this pattern wouldn't be.

I made these pj bottoms over a year ago, and attempted to make a top to match with a big four pattern. The result was frumptastic and huge and I never finished the top. I bought more of the fabric, the Amy Sedaris for Windham Collection "I Like You" and waited for an appropriate pattern. SO happy with the results.




The directions are straight forward and easy. I made my own gingham piping, using rat tail as the cord. The only adjustment I made was to make the short sleeves bigger for my muscles/ chunk arms. After wearing my pjs for a couple nights I stitched the facing to the shirt. This is how my rtw pj shirts are and it is more comfortable. I love this pattern so much I am spending this snow day making a pair out of knit, and wearing my I like you jammies. Total jammie bliss.
