These classic footed pajamas are a staple in many houses with little kids. They are especially appreciated when the little ones are super active! It can be a chore getting them dressed and keeping them dressed.
This all-in-one top, pants, and socks that zip up the front is super easy to put and makes a comfortable playsuit for the most energetic children. This design has a roomy cut and zips all the way down one leg for easy dressing. Elastic at the back ankles keeps the feet from slipping off and the knit cuffs keep the sleeves from riding up. The tab cover at the top of the zipper and the low profile knit collar are the final details that make this one of the most comfortable and favorite pajamas for kids.

I haven’t actually started this yet, as I still have to find a long enough zipper. But I read through the instructions and they were very well made. Pictures for every step and very helpful pattern pieces. It looks just like an old pair my brothers had.
I was able to test an early version of this pattern, and it was so much fun to make! While it’s a big change from the usual historical patterns from Thimbles and Acorns, it’s just as well done with clear instructions and helpful photos. The fit is comfortably loose, and the full length zipper makes it easy to get on and off. I made it with a soft minky fabric (the kind without bumps), which was surprisingly easy to sew with. Definitely a pattern I’ll want to make again!
