sitting quietly at a sewing machine seems to be the one thing that is easy for me to do while recuperating from surgery! so i am working my way through half-started sewing projects. it's quite embarrassing the number of things i cut and pin and abandon. oops. today's project: pyjamas!
i love tailored pyjamas. i think they make the kid look handsome and sophisticated. this fabric i like especially, because from a distance, it looks like the sort of classic pyjama that william powell might have worn in the thin man...
... but if you get a little closer, you see that the fabric is actually inspired by another 1930s classic, the wizard of oz.
hmm, now i am thinking i should make the kid a smoking jacket, for the full effect.
