|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...
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.
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!
