At the end of every year I make myself a new set of pajamas/ lounge clothes. It's a nice little tradition and makes me happy to sew up something fun and quick just for myself.
This year I choose Doctor Who as my theme. In 2015 I spent many, many hours in the sewing room while The entire modern series of Doctor Who played on my television. That's quite a few hours of Doctor Whoisms to seep into my brain and subconscious. Before I knew it I became a genuine fan of Doctor Who!
I started off with the fleece pants on the bottom left in the picture. I actually made these over Thanksgiving. Having just gotten out of the hospital I wanted an oversized, super comfy pair of make me feel better, lounge pants. These fit the bill! It's like having a fleecy blanket wrapped around your lower half all the time. For these pants I used Silhouettes 3-piece yoga pants and went up a couple sizes to achieve my results.
Then I decided I wanted a full pair of PJ's. The fleece pants are just a bit to bulky for me to wear to bed on a regular basis. I get too hot! So while in JoAnn's for the after Christmas wrapping sale I saw this fleece fabric with a smooth face and great stretch and recovery and thought ohhhhh. New Jammies!!
Hence the PJ set on the bottom right. The top,is made from my TNT long sleeve t-shirt pattern Vogue 1363 and the bottoms are my TNT leggings pattern, McCall's 6173.
These are a ridiculously comfortable set of pajamas! Soft and fleecy inside and smooth and cool on the outside :)
And to round it all out.... A set of Tardis flannel pillowcases! How could I pass this up???
Now that I'm done with my super geekiness I can get back to my regular sewing schedule, of course while wearing some Doctor Who goodness! LOL!!
Happy 2016! I have one more garment to blog about from 2015 and then I can finally be caught up.
I won't be doing a review of 2015... I see no need. I usually only do that when I am unsure about my plans or directions that I want to take for the next year. I already have my plans and goals so I'm good to just keep moving forward!
