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.
