The Cat’s Pajamas

The moment I saw the tulip-like construction on the back of these pajamas, I knew I had to make them. They’re another offering from Sprout Patterns, which I know I’ve written about before. Then I found the perfect collection of designs, and I couldn’t resist.

Want to see what this project looked like at Sprout Patterns? Check this out! You can see all the designs, and the 3D model, and if you click “customize this project” over on the right you can even spin it around, see the back, play with the designs and even change it yourself. Its so much fun to play with.

The pattern was super easy and fun to sew, once I got finished making the miles of matching bias tape. The construction of the back is just as fun and interesting and flattering as I knew it would be. The shorts are comfy, and shorter than anything I’d normally wear to the gym, but not unreasonable for most people.

A big thank you to Caroline Okun, who took the photos for the Sprout Patterns website, and Paula who was kind enough to model!

20lineartThe construction of the tank top makes this pattern one of my favorites. It was so easy to put together, so flattering, and so fun. I will say that the shorts are definitely too small for me to be comfortable wearing to the gym, or out an about, as her website suggests, but that’s probably more about me than about the shorts, haha.

The instructions make perfect sense, are clear and concise, and really give an excellently finished result.

I really love the construction of the back of the top, its got a fun flowy layer tulip look.
