Let Sleeping Cats Lie

This week, for the first time in a very long time, I made something for me to wear. It was only a pair of pyjama shorts but it made a change to swap 1/4” seams for French seams.

The pattern was from Lekala and I lengthened it by a couple of inches. I downloaded it (along with many others) a few years ago when their fixed sized patterns were free to download. The fabric remnant cost the grand sum of £1.50 and the elastic was in the goody bag from last year’s Fat Quarterly Retreat. The little ribbon bow (so I don’t put them on back-to-front) was made from one of those ribbon loop hangers found in knitwear which I always cut off as I don’t hang my knitwear. So, all in all, a very cheap and cheerful project.


  1. So, can we now call you 'fancy-pants'? In the friendliest manner, of course! They look fab!
