It's a warm summer evening and time to dress in some cozy pajamas and drift off to Slumber land. With this PDF pattern you can make a cute top with bloomers for bedtime. The bodice part of the top is lined. It overlaps at the back and closes with hook and loop tape but you can sew on snaps as well. The bloomers are so cute with elastic cuffs. Add some lace and they look even prettier. Included is a longer dress length to make a summer play dress.
The pattern is designed to fit 14.5 inch dolls like WellieWishers™, but you can also find this pattern at Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®, Journey Girls®, Disney®Animators', and Les Cheries® and Hearts For Hearts® dolls.

I have only sewn the top for this set. I shortened it to use it for a sleeveless blouse to go with a skirt. The only difficulty I had was with the turning and pressing after the turning. I tried using the instrument the creator had suggested for the turning, but ultimately my fingers worked best. The second one I made was easier to turn. I will say you have to make sure your seams are 1/4 inch or less or the top may be a little snug.
I've used this pattern a lot! I've made it shorter for a top, I've made it longer for a dress, I've added a pleat to make it fuller, I've added a ruffle to make it fancy. I think the only thing I haven't used it for is pajamas.
Very cute pattern. Easy to make and so many possibilities by changing fabrics
