i was lounging in the bay window reading, and thinking "i ought to be wearing lounging pyjamas and my bed jacket" and thinking "don't be ridiculous, changing into bedclothes in the afternoon is absurd" and thinking "i do need lounging pyjamas though" when finally i got up to do a quick search. i bought some linen/cotton on sale a little while ago, with elegant summer pyjamas in mind, but a pattern is needed.
imagine my delight to find this: a promise of a free pattern for lounging pyjamas!
and after snooping around the blog, the pattern itself! the pdf pattern is for the pyjama top only, but that's no worries, pyjama bottoms are easy enough.
i will undoubtedly be having a look round that blog for other patterns, too. oh happy day!
