Pyjama-based Wardrobe

This winter, I aim to wear pyjamas masquerading as clothes. It started with a pair of amazing jeans from my favourite clothing company howies. They are the finest things in the world - a perfectly nice-looking pair of jeans, but underneath! They are lined with the softest brushed cotton, so feel like wearing PJs. This is clearly an excellent concept, and if you ask me, one which needs to be extended further. In that spirit, I am currently making a pretty and girly shirt, but out of nice soft brushed cotton. I love making my own clothes, flexibility to do whatever I like!

It is the first time I have played with checks (plaid), but I have made a bit of a stab at pattern matching. Possibly more by accident than design, some of it actually seems to line up! The pattern is Hawthorn by the company Colette, it has brilliant instructions and they did a sewalong online so even a newbie like me can manage to get the thing together.

matchy lines!

Inside waistband, nice and tidy!
Coming together! I'm going to put on elbow-length sleeves, and even attempt a proper placket, wish me luck :)
