October Sewalong: Goodnight Sweetheart Pajamas

Be prepared for an overwhelming wave of cuteness, because Stacey sewed up the Sweetheart Pajamas from the book in October:

About the Goodnight Sweetheart Pajamas Pattern:
– This classic pair of PJs was designed for comfort in mind. Stitch them up in a lightweight linen or cotton (or even a soft, older sheet!) for spring/summer and make them out of a cozy flannel for fall and winter.
– You will need 1 1/2 yards to make the size 2/3 or 2 1/4 yards for the largest size (6/7).
– The pattern also calls for a turning tool, 4 buttons, a package of pre-made coordinating piping or 60″ of bias tape, 1″ wide elastic, and (optional) water-soluble basting tape.
– This is an intermediate level pattern.

This pattern is a traditional pair of button-down top pajamas with matching pants. You can sew them out of all one fabric or make a coordinating set like Stacey did with matching trims. In the book, we’ve also shown how this pattern can be made for coordinating or matching sibling PJs:

This classic look is adorable on kids of all ages and is another one that would be easy to adapt for girls as well.

We’d love to see your PJs or anything else you’ve sewn from the book: come to the Flickr pool and share your creations! Here are some of the PJs that have already popped up there:
