Pajama Par-tay!!!

In case you've forgotten the spectacle I have been working on this week, here is my pattern and materials:
It was all simple to make, but I did make 5 pieces total: curler cap, top, "panties" (that's what the pattern calls them!), and a pair of slippers.

I was absolutely incompetent at rolling my hair in curlers, so Andrew helped me. He is so wonderful, and it's so nice that he willing supports all of my insane plans. Sorry that these had to be in my bedroom, but I would not wear this in public(!) and they are supposed to be pajama!

Reading a trashy romance novel, actually one that I own and like. Anyone else read Eloisa James?
My curler cap, proudly supported by real curlers.
The back. The top has three buttons, which are hard to make out in the busy print. Being a genius, I did the curlers before I put on the top. LOL.
When T-Rex saw me with the curlers he started barking. HAhahahha. He wanted to bite my feet in the slippers as well. I will do a separate post on the slippers, which were fairly easy and fun to make.
The "panties"!
The full ensemble!
Laughing at Andrew's suggestion of some not so family friendly poses
Anyways, it was fun to make. My arms and legs are freezing, but my body and head are warm.

What DO you think???

  3. I had to pop over here and comment when I spotted an Eloisa James in one of the photos on Sew Retro! She's fab, and in case you don't know, a well-regarded Shakespearean scholar in her day job. But as for the point of the post, adorable ensemble!

  4. OMG - I can't believe I used to go to bed in rollers every night and actually was able to sleep on them! I never had such a cool curler cover, though.

    Thanks for bringing back my olden days!

  16. My sister made a similar set and hated it. She thought she looked too much like a doll.
    I think it is totally fun, and if you can't wear silly clothes, silly pajamas are the next best thing.
