Roses and Cherries Summer Pajamas

Options are good to have, especially in Illinois, when the weather can turn from freezing to blistering hot in a few days.  So, I made another pair of pajamas for my daughter to wear while she recuperates from surgery.  These will also coordinate with the robe that I made here. 

This time I used the short sleeved version of Kwik Sew 2811 and the shorts and top from Kwik Sew 3882.  I used Caravan Dreams Climbing Vines in Orange for the body and Field Day Cherries for the contrast.



I had just enough piping left from the robe to accent the pocket with yellow piping.  And I used pink buttons for the front.


The collar is from the cherry print:


The for the shorts and tank, I used a grey rayon knit for the tank, and the same fabrics for the shorts.


I serged the tank with peach and yellow thread, and then turned that to the right side of the neckline and armholes.


The shorts have a paperbag waist with elastic, and a drawstring.  The cuffs are made from a contrast fabric. There are pockets as well.


So, she is all set to mix and match any piece!  These are fun to make, but all of the details do take some time.  It took me all day yesterday to make all three pieces.  But, I hope it will be worth it and she will love them.  Pink and orange are her favorite colors.  These are certainly one of a kind!

Happy Sewing!
