Long, sunny, summer days call for pajamas and nightgowns that are oh-so-comfy when your little sweetheart’s head finally hits the pillow.
Add her choice of lace or ruffles or bows – or all of them – to a soft knit that is cool and soothing. And for an even bigger smile goodnight, give her a matching set for her mini doll whom she likes to mother (pattern for minis sold separately).
If her choice is a girly gown, just lengthen the top and add lots of lace for nightgowns that will make her and her mini feel like little princesses.
All of these pieces stitch up easily and quickly, so she can have pajamas or nightgowns in each of her favorite colors.
Elastic straps make them easy to pull on - no Velcro® here. And, if you wish, you can make it all from upcycled t-shirts - like the ones you can purchase at craft stores on sale for $5 or less.

This goes together so quickly and is so very cute! Great PJs for any pajama party! Or, sew it up as a set for the beach!
These pjs turned out so cute and were easy to make. I don't usually make pjs because they are so much work but these were easy to do and turned out so adorable. I also like that I could use t shirt material.
The minute I seen this pattern I thought Camp P.J.'S. I knew I had to sew it. Fun and quick to sew with the fold over elastic! I picked up a T shirt on the clearance rack that matched my daughter's P.J.'S. that always makes the kids happy. Merry Manatees is so good at showing tips you along the way and very clear instructions. Made these P.J.'S easy to sew right up. My daughter was excited to show them off to her friends that now they all want a pair for their dolls. I see more pajamas in my future.
I'm still tickled by how cute my pajamas came out. The construction directions were clear and offered extra helpful tips! I used a craft store tee shirt and was amazed by the fold over elastic options to give it just the right accent. This pattern is well written, easy to follow, and fits perfectly. Another winner from Merry Manatees!!
