Liberty Tana Lawn Pyjamas & Kimono

I made these PJ’s  back in September but never got round blogging about them, I am using these lazy days between Christmas and New year to catch up with my backlog.

Whenever I go to London I always try to visit the Liberty store to admire all the lovely fabrics,  I also love the ladies sleepwear but as the pyjamas in Tana Lawn sell for about £130  they’re a bit out of my price range!  So when I found 3m of Liberty Tana Lawn, Maddock design on ebay for £18  I knew I wanted to use it to make pyjamas and if I could squeeze it in, a matching robe.

For the pyjamas I used Kwik Sew 2811 which I used before here

For the robe I used a free pattern from Love Sewing that I found  by searching the internet for a free robe pattern Floral-oriental-kimono-robe

I shortened the length by about 6 inches as I am only   5’2″ and by happy coincidence was the perfect length to fit on my limited fabric.  All sewn with French seams which with kimono sleeves is easy.  I  remembered to add a hanging loop for hanging on the back of the bedroom door.

Sleeping in Liberty Tana Lawn is every bit as  luxurious as  I imagined.

  1. Great job! Looks most comfortable. It’s always great to sew for one’s self; on cannot buy anything close to this in quality, lightweight fabric and superior workmanship. I hate shopping. very nice.

  2. Ooh – lovely p.j.s and something I quite fancy making myself – I’ll have to investigate the pattern. Sleeping in tana lawn appeals to me enormously and I do believe I might have 3m of it lying around somewhere 😉
