Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Closet Case Files - Carolyn Pajamas


Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Closet Case Files - Carolyn Pajamas
It's time for my second Minerva Crafts Blogger Network post, if you missed my first post all about my land-girl inspired Grainline Studio Archer Shirt, check it out HERE. For my December make, it seemed appropriate to sew up a nice pair of pjs to spend Christmas in and the Closet Case Files Carolyn Pajamas have been on my wish list for quite some time.

My pinup-perfect Carolyn pjs!


As I said in my previous post, I'll be previewing my Minerva makes on my blog with a big ol' link to the main post, to make sure no one misses it! But for a quick look at my thoughts and to get the look for yourself, here's my sewing summary...

Sewing Summary:

Pattern: Closet Case Files Ladies Sewing Pattern Carolyn Pajamas

Fabric: Light Pink Plain Cotton Poplin

Notions: Polyester Flanged Piping Cord

Sewing time: I spent two about afternoons on this.

Modifications: None!

Fit: Great! Fits great across my bust, good length for the shirt and the shorts are comfy,

Difficulty: Like I said, I found the instructions a little dense, but the illustrations helped. I'd recommend this pattern for confident sewists.

Watch out for: Precise collar and piping sewing for a crisp and neat collar (mine could certainly be improved!).

Make Again?: Yes! I love this pattern and look forward to making it again now I understand the pattern better. Cosy flannel here I come!

I hope you like my take on the Carolyn Pajamas! Want to know what I'm sewing for January's Minerva make? See my plans HERE.
Thanks for reading.

  1. So cute! I love the contrast piping and tiny bow on the pocket. It looks like a very satisfying project to sew.

  2. Fab looking pajamas and the piping looks great, it looks like a fun make that I might need to give a go.

  3. I can't even begin to express how much I love these pjs. Red and pink! I never think of that combo, but hello fabulous! Such a classic shape too, and that piping brings the look together flawlessly! Where did you get the bow from? or did you make it?
